More about MJ


I saw Marc himself my very first day of my internship...Yes, I couldn't believe my little eyes!

I was going down the elevator, excited to visit Dean & Deluca for some pasta... and as the elevator opens, I look up from texting (which is a miracle in itself) to see him and his blue hair. I froze for half a second and smiled and walked out the doors shaking! I began calling everyone in my cell to tell them the news that topped off my Friday :)....unfortunately that was the ONLY time I saw him but it will forever be imprinted in my mind.


I interned in the Sales dept. for the RTW Marc by Marc collection in the showroom in SoHo. I worked alot on inventory and changing line sheets, as well as going through boxes of merchandise which noone knew what it was, so I would have to go through sheets and sheets of paper trying to figure out the style number, season, etc.
One of the lengthy projects I had to do was cut out all of those white tags behind the label you see on garments,...which was not too fun especially when the clothing is being taken away from stylists, buyers, and employees. During market week, I had the responsibility of keeping all the garments in the correct deliveries (June, July, Denim, etc) on racks for buyers and also style the models if a buyer wanted one to try something on.


I was so upset when I found I could have gone to the Marc by Marc show! :-( It turned out it was on a day I was at Teen Vogue so they figured I wouldn't have been able to go! rrrrats!

However I didn't know at the time that I would soon be in the tents....

That's cool! I snuck into his Fall 2008 show last month, and it was sooo worth it! Although, a lot of critics seem to not be too fond of it.

I have a question: What do you put in a resume when it's your first time applying for an internship?

Secretista: I think again I was just very lucky because my experience before my first internship at Miguelina, was sales positions at places like Victoria's Secret!
Sometimes you have to just have faith and hopefully someone will give you a shot thatll turn into your big break! I owe everything to Miguelina!
