Meet The Interns! Kirsten & Emily!

Hi Everyone I’m Emily, one of La Mode’s new interns. I’m a senior at Rowan University majoring in advertising. This is the start of my final semester, only 116 days until graduation (not that I am counting or

I am really excited about my internship. Nikki is the perfect mentor; very organized and professional yet also funny and great to be around. I expect to learn a lot during my time here. Working for Le Mode will let me utilize my advertising and marketing knowledge in a field I love; fashion. My favorite designer is Betsey Johnson; her designs are over the top, but I love her use of color and her flair for whimsy. I own several of her bags and would love a few pieces of her jewelry. Attached is a picture of my favorite Betsey bag. Purchased from her store at the Pier in Atlantic City, this fun and wild bag is definitely me!

You know how some people love shoes, well I love handbags! Besides my Betsey bags, I own Dooney & Bourke bags, Michael Kors bags and, of course, quite a few Coach bags- see picture. Their Poppy Collection is amazing!! It’s bright and colorful and fun.

Personally, I enjoy traveling, hanging out with friends and family and having fun. I love my new iTouch, going to concerts and movies, photography and of course shopping.

I just returned from a trip to New York City, details next week.

Emily :)

My name is Kirsten Braun I’m 26, and I absolutely love fashion! I am very eager and excited to be working as an intern for La Mode. I have my associates degree in Marketing and I am currently attending school at DeVry University in PA working on my bachelors degree in Technical Management with a concentration in Small Business and Entrepreneurial ship. I started college at DeVry in 2008 with the intentions of graduating and then working in the marketing/entertainment industry. Even though I have always loved fashion I wasn’t sure if I could make a career out of it. After much thinking, I realized that because of my love to shop and my natural ability to pick out the latest trend and putting together outfits that are trendy but yet within my budget. What initially attracted me to La Mode was the fact that La Mode is in the fashion industry and that working for La Mode will help me gain the experience needed in order to pursue my career. Using the team approach I am sure that La Mode and myself can learn from each other and help La Mode grow to be a great success!

Till next week :)
