Summer ’13 NYC Internship

As you all know, I’m going back to New York next month for another Summer and I’ve just received an extremely exciting email to confirm that I’ll once again be a fashion intern in my favourite city! I’ve been applying for internships for the past few weeks and one of the companies I applied to is my all-time-favourite online fashion bible – refinery29.com. They emailed me back on Wednesday, I had an interview over the phone today and I’ve just recieved the email to say that I got the position!! I genuinely couldn’t be more excited. 


Before I moved to New York, I didn’t know a lot about refinery29, but it definitely wasn’t long before it became my go-to website (and the first website I checked every single morning) for anything related to fashion, events, etc. and I was even featured on the site a few times myself which you can see here and hereWhen I moved home from New York last September, I wrote a list consisting of all the companies/brands I want to work with in the next few years and one of those companies was Refinery29. So with a bit of perseverance it has happened!! I move back to New York on May 25th and I start the internship on May 27th. I actually can’t hold in the excitement! Also, their offices are in my absolute favourite part of the city -The East Village.

I’ll be working with the Brand Integration and Marketing department which will involve developing and initiating collaborations for the site -with bloggers, celebrities, stores, brands, etc. and I’ll also be working on the photo-shoot and event coordination side of things. For someone with both a fashion and business background -this is honestly my dream internship and is the kind of work that I want to get into in the long-term. So I’m excited to see what doors this will possibly open for me in the future. 

Refinery29 has bases in New York, Los Angeles, San Fransisco, Chicago…and has recently just launched in London! It receives over 1 Billion pages views a year and has thousands and thousands of followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. So to be given the opportunity to work with such a successful company has put a permanent smile on my face!

So I hope that you’ll stick around with me for this exciting journey! You can look forward to some more ‘NYC Internship Diaries’ throughout the Summer and I have a feeling there is going to be even more to share this time around. 

Here’s to big dreams!

Stylishly yours,
