Fashion Fridays

Hi guys and welcome to Fashion Fridays with Jess P (aka ME!!!). If your one true love is fashion then this is the blog for you.

Each Friday I'll take you on a small journey through my week, showing you the ins and outs of my experiences in the world of fashion. I'll also be answering reader questions so be sure to send me any of your own fashion dilemmas! You can email me at dollymail@acpmagazines.com.au, just put "Fashion Fridays" in the subject line...

Week 8

Hi guys, hope you're all well and ready for the sun to finally come out!

As you may know, the fashion department wouldn't operate without our trusty fashion interns so I thought I'd introduce you to one of our best and brightest, Lauren Cain! Lauren has been at DOLLY for about a year and boy, has she been a great help!

In her time with us Lauren has done everything from assisting on shoots to sourcing props. She's with us one or two days a week and ALWAYS shows a great deal of motivation and determination which are key strengths to have if you want to work in the world of magazines.

I sat down with Lauren this week to ask her a few questions just so you can all get to know her. ENJOY!

Lauren Cain

How did you score your internship?
I attended a fashion college while at university. They offered great internships in all different fields of fashion. I thought I'd give magazines a go — and now I wouldn't ever turn back!

What do you like most about interning?
There are heaps of bonuses from working with DOLLY. I think my favourite though is assisting on fashion shoots — the people you meet and get to work with are always lots of fun and there are heaps of new things to learn each time! I also love seeing the new clothes and how the stylists put their skills into action and make the fashion shoot come to life.

Describe your style in three words...
Relaxed, comfortable (and a little) tomboy.

Your top five must-have items?
Denim jacket
High-waisted shorts
Ankle boots
Striped tees and singlets
Printed jumpsuits

What's the one thing every girl needs in her wardrobe?
A white lace summer dress which can be worn from day to night!

What's your best fashion advice?
Don't hold back; experiment and have fun — it's just fashion!

Who is your style icon?
Alexa Chung. I love how relaxed and effortless she is!

What are you currently obsessed with?
Summer linen blazers.

What are you currently saving up for?
A trip to Cambodia and Bangkok in January! A group of my friends and I are volunteering at an orphanage for a month — I can't wait to get there. I think it will be an amazing opportunity; quite confronting but I'm sure I'll be left with many life-long memories.

So ladies, if fashion and magazines is where you'd like to be then make sure you aim to score yourself an internship just like Lauren. Who knows, SHE may one day be interviewing you for your very first internship!
