KIDS CO: CATCH UP WITH ANGELA

12.12.12

As the last remaining intern from our Kids Co/Grazia partnership, today we caught up with Angela on the final day of her internship here at Reiss. So we made our way to the press office, where we discovered Angela, surrounded by SS13 samples, for a quick chat on what she's loved most about her time at Reiss and her plans for a flourishing future in fashion.

How do you feel your internship has gone?

My internship has been really great. I have been here for 3 months and time has gone so quickly  - I don't want to leave because I'm enjoying myself more and more and I'm getting on so well with my team. I can honestly say they are the best people I have ever worked with and they've been so helpful and caring, every single moment. I'm really lucky to have excellent and brilliant mentors like Andrew, Helena and Olivia. They are unique!

What’s your favourite part of the job? I don't actually have a favourite part of the job because I enjoy doing everything, from sending out the samples to booking them back in and all the other exciting stuff I did.

After your experience, is PR a career you’d like to pursue?

I wouldn't mind pursuing PR, but I'd rather love to have design as my career.

Are there any other aspects of the fashion industry you’d like to explore?

Yes, I'd love to explore fashion marketing and promotion and fashion styling.

So, as Angela's internship comes to an end, so does this year's Kids Co/Grazia partnership. With skills and experience gained to take the interns forward into further education or employment in the fashion industry, it's been an enriching project for all involved.

We'd like to say a massive thank you to Kids Co, Grazia and, of course, our interns, who have been such an inspiration, and we'd like to wish them all the very best for the future.
