Meet Katie – our lovely new intern from the FashionRetailAcademy. We thought we’d get Katie to introduce herself to you as she’ll be working with us for the next month all of our marketing campaigns. Read her Q&A below to get to know here better.
So, tell us what you’re currently studying the Retail Academy.
Hello! I’m currently studying for a Level 3 Diploma in Fashion Retail and I’m interning to get more experience in to the crazy world of fashion.
What made you want to go into fashion?
I’ve always been interested in fashion but I never knew the direction that I wanted to take within the industry. A few years ago I started to research fashion related courses online and came across the FashionRetailAcademy – the first National skills academy to open in the UK. It’s a great place to learn about the industry and develop the skills needed for a fast paced career in fashion.
What do you love about being part of the academy?
I have had lots of great experiences at the FashionRetailAcademy. My diploma is very broad which has allowed me to cover a lot of aspects of retail, including PR, marketing, styling and buying. I love it because there is always something different going on; I can be styling models one minute and involved in a master class with Sir Phillip Green the next. My favourite experience has to be organising the annual D.I.Y fashion show.
Now that the course is coming to an end what are your plans for the future?
I’m enjoying the work experience that I’m getting here at T.M.Lewin; it’s really interesting being part of the marketing team and gaining first hand experience in a fast paced environment. I don’t have any solid plans for the end of this placement but I am excited to get out there with the knowledge that I have learnt from the academy and start an exciting new career in fashion retail.
