Forever 21 Internship

Firstly I'd like to apologize for not posting in much for the past 2 months as I've been busy with my internship! Its a killer job and I literally come home exhausted and whining but then I just always think of the experience I'm getting and just get over it!
Anyways so I'm sure a few might know I took up an internship for 2 months at Forever 21 Middle East  as a Visual Merchandiser. Now those of you who don't know what a VM is - its basically having you products at the right place at the right time. VM has 3 parts - the merchandising bit (getting your goods on the floor); the visual part (creating a visual impact) and last but not the least - styling.
Personally when I was working I was more drawn towards the styling aspect as I'm a fashion enthusiast and kind off dwelled alright with the rest of the aspects. Anyways it was a wonderful experience working with the whole VM team!
Here are a few pictures of the mannequins I've styled (Apologies for the low quality pictures later below as I didn't carry my camera so they're taken off my blackberry) :

  1. OMG I love it! That is like such a dream job! I would personally pick Forever 21 over Tommy Hilfiger any day. Although don't tell my boss i said that, shh...
    Are they paying you? Do you get some free goodies? Which store did you work in? By the looks of it I'm thinking Mirdiff City Centre or MOE.

  2. Hahahaha aw thanks a ton babe. Shh.. will be our little secret ;)
    I did get paid and employee discount (WOOH! ) HAHAH!
    I started with Dubai Mall (didn't do much styling there) and then moved to Mirdiff CC and final stop was MOE which was my fav! ABSOLUTELY loved working there!

  3. Who would you contact in order to apply for an internship with Forever21?

  4. How did you find out about the internship? I've been looking all over for one with them!
