talking with our interns!

Post image for talking with our interns!

say hello to two of our sweet and adorable interns, carolina and nicole! they are going into their senior year of high school and have spent the last two weeks interning here at free people. these best friends had a unique and exciting internship that allowed them to experience several departments here at the home office.  i spent a little time with them today to talk about their experience!

what was your favorite part of your internship here?

both: being in the photo studio! watching the stylists at work and seeing the models was really exciting.

nicole: i actually loved hanging up all the clothes when they were finished shooting with them! i loved getting to see all the beautiful clothing up close.

carolina: it’s been amazing, we’ll never get an experience like this again!

both: spending time with the designers was really cool too because we got to see just how much they do! they showed us items online that they had designed and you never really think about that, it’s crazy.  we’re not the most talented with our hands and we tried to sew a sweater – it was a disaster.

talking about high school and proms with our senior stylist!

what is your dream job?

carolina: after this experience, i think i would love to be a designer or a buyer.

nicole: i would definitely want to be a stylist or buyer if i worked for a clothing company, but my dream has always been to be a doctor!

which free people girl are you?

nicole: i’m definitely lou during the day and ginger at night!

carolina: i think a little bit of all of them, except for lou.

nicole: you’re a mix of candy and ginger for sure :)

what is your favorite free people item?

nicole: i am completely obsessed with the coachella boots (pictured below on candy).  they’re all i can think about. my dad finally agreed to get them for me as an early birthday present and i am SO excited!

carolina: i love the green motorcuff thermal (pictured below on lou)! but i want every color, i’d wear them all the time.

hi sidney- they actually had a special internship that was only two weeks long and allowed them to spend a couple days in various departments here. if anything like it is available in the future i will be sure to post it on the blog :)
