What Contessa D’savoy looks for in interns…
“My team is like my family. We spend a lot of time with each other. I work directly with several designers, manufacturers, distributors and individual boutique buyers. Of course your skill set is always important, but I find it equally important that my interns be lighthearted, kind, loyal people who are interested in contributing to something greater than themselves. Your attitude and desire to learn is just as important as your skill set. You only get out of the internship what you put into it. Only you know exactly what you want to learn most. Fashion is a tough racket. If you don’t LOVE it, you won’t survive. ”
