Fashion PR Intern at Tractenberg & Co.

As a showroom assistant at Tractenberg & Co. fashion PR, my responsibilities include day to day showroom management and running between the showroom and where I am deployed to in the city of New York in a very similar fashion of the Devil Wears Prada except that my boss at the time Megan Maguire Steele (http://www.maguiresteele.com/) was personable and benevolent unlike the character Meryl Streep portrayed in the film. In running up to New York fashion week I had adopted a fluid way of working which enabled me to learn many forms of transferable skills in areas such as networking and wearing the "ego jacket" which seemed essential to represent our brand and status in the New York circle.

The above picture was grabbed off of the TV screen on NY1 channel for the broadcast of New York Fashion week in 2008 where my internship required me to be at the event and I was subsequently asked to sit in the front row as a seat filler at Duckie Brown's runway show.
