Intern Review

Isabella Elias FIT Fashion Business Management Student

My internship at Future Brands Group was an incredibly enriching experience. From the moment I started, I felt like part of the team. I got to dive into so many different tasks and projects, which really helped me grow and understand the fashion industry better.

One of the first things I learned was how to create line sheets. It was all about the details and understanding the products, and I loved getting into the nitty-gritty of it. I also had the chance to manage the company’s Instagram account, which was both challenging and exciting. This role required creativity and strategic planning to effectively engage with our audience and maintain a consistent brand image.

Another significant aspect of my internship was creating blog post communications for B2B. This task honed my ability to convey complex information clearly and persuasively. Additionally, I was involved in various content creation projects, which allowed me to explore different facets
of marketing and communication within the fashion industry.

Helping with production notes was another critical learning area. It provided me with insight into the production process and the importance of detailed documentation and communication. Assisting with showroom merchandising was a hands-on experience that taught me the principles of visual merchandising and the impact of product presentation on sales.

One of the highlights of my internship was helping set up for the COTERIE trade show and assisting with sales interactions with buyers and brand representatives. This experience was invaluable as it gave me a front-row seat to the wholesale business side of fashion, including networking and relationship building with industry professionals.

The team at Future Brands Group was incredibly supportive. I was given the freedom to approach my work independently, which fostered a sense of ownership and responsibility. At the same time, everyone was always available to offer guidance and tips to improve my efficiency and effectiveness. The one-on-one sessions with the founder were particularly impactful. These sessions allowed me to gain deeper insights into the industry and work on significant projects that broadened my perspective and skills.

A special mention goes to my supervisor, Brianna. Working closely with her was one of the best parts of my internship. She made the environment comfortable and supportive, always encouraging me to ask questions and seek help when needed. She was patient and explained things thoroughly, making sure I understood each task completely. She not only guided me through my tasks but also provided constructive feedback that helped me grow professionally.

Overall, the environment at Future Brands Group was vibrant and full of positive energy. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have had my first internship in the fashion industry with such an amazing group of people. The skills and insights I gained during my time at Future Brands Group will undoubtedly be beneficial as I continue my career in fashion. This internship
has not only equipped me with practical skills but also instilled a deeper appreciation for the
industry and the collaborative effort that goes into creating successful fashion brands.

I highly recommend Future Brands Group to anyone looking for a comprehensive and fulfilling internship experience in the fashion industry. The combination of hands-on learning, supportive mentorship, and a positive work environment makes it an ideal place to grow and develop professionally.
