I see this from both sides…..
Fashion student needs experience and not many fashion businesses are prepared to offer an internship.
Fashion business needs staff in one form or another, can’t afford full time staff, possibly don’t know what they need too run an internship program or where to find quality staff.
Trust me, this is very real.
Both sides are in desperate need of help and I am personally hearing this from both sides of the catwalk curtain.
Setting up this Internship Program seemed like a logical next step. Purchasing the specific program from me once and you reuse it over and over again…. update it from your feedback and keep improving your business and the interns leave having learnt so much from you and this in turns helps the Australian Fashion Industry.
Baby steps at first until YOU the business owner are comfortable with handing over the jobs you feel you seriously are not able to do anymore, plus by teaching the inexperienced or overly creative soul or the insanely naïve medial chores, like putting the bins out and staying off their phone during business hours …. the world around will applaud you.
If you are reading this then you are either thinking about it or want to set this up in your fashion business. Please add your details below so we are able to keep abreast of your needs and adapt our internship data, love & thanks xxx
OK so lets get to the main objective…..
YOU want to set up an internship program, knowing how this works and having this program downloadable as soon as you pay for it was my intention to get this out & working
Plus, rest assured I have free stuff for you to love on.

We have several Internship Programs on offer.
5 days (1 week)
reuse 52 times a year
10 days (2 weeks)
reuse 26 times a year.
This is perfect for the mid semester break.
4 weeks (1 month)
reuse 12 times a year
6 weeks (1 1/2 months) reuse 4 times a year.
This is perfect for summer holiday.
Each Program includes the above 11 areas, detailed checklists, ideas for duties, how to train & monitor your staff. Offer feedback and receiving it, how to use that feedback to improve your own business. It is all there.
Remembering, ….. this is essentially free labour and in my college days we called it work experience…. and this is another example of international jargon coming into Australia and making it sound all fancy smancy. I don’t have a problem with this what so ever but I do have a problem with is “some” of the fashion industry expectations on working hours and the way they treat staff. That’s a whole other conversation….
So, my programs are suited to helping both the employer and the employee whether they are paid or not. You will love it and I would love your feedback too xxxx
