As mentioned in a previous post I was lucky enough to be have the chance to be at Paris Fashion Week by interning in the Matthew Williamson showroom. Although this meant I didn't get to see any shows (well try and blag my way into one). It was pretty cool being in Paris while all these amazing catwalk shows were going on, a favourite of mine being the Marc Jacobs/ Louis Vuitton steam train! (More on this later)
I 'd never worked in a show room before but when I used to help my Mother be a buyer for her bridal boutique (the Bridal Box, Oxford) I attended many showrooms so I had an idea of what it would be like. Interning is never a glamourous job but everyone at Matthew Williamson was so friendly and lovely it made such a difference.
I was working 8.30am-8.30pm most days which left very little time for site seeing and touristy activities. This is what I saw:
I love love love Paris, its so beautiful! It was really fun going out for drinks with the other interns and going out in Paris. I was lucky enough to be able to stay with a friend who is on his year abroad in Paris, his flat overlooks the Eiffel Tour! A hashtagAMAZEBALLS moment!
