KIDS CO: CATCH UP WITH CHARLENE

10.10.12

The Reiss/Kids Co Interns have been working hard for over 3 months, so now seemed the perfect time to catch up with them and find out how they're getting on. Today, we made our way over to our Leadenhall store, where Charlene, our Visual Merchandising intern, was busy re-merchandising the store.

How is the internship going so far?

Very good, I have actually increased my days from 2 to 3 per week and have extended my internship by a further 3 months - I'm enjoying it so much!

What's your favourite part of the job?

Window dressing is the most fun and I enjoy the creativity of styling the mannequins, too.

After your experience so far, is VM a career you'd like to pursue?

Yes, I am excited at the prospect of a career in visual merchandising - I find it creative, diverse and ultimately, very rewarding.

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

At the moment I'm focussed on VM, I like meeting different people in different stores each day and the creativity which comes with it.
