London is Fashion!

The application process was simple and fast. Everything was clear and went smoothly. FWI Staff and my program manager were very helpful, and the faq part of the website really helped before I decided to apply.

Christian was my advisor and he was really helpful and genuinely caring about making my experience all that I wanted it to be. Upon arrival I met with other interns that I was sharing my residence with, and was able to spend a lot of my freetime exploring London with.

I worked for a pr and communications agency in Covent Garden. It was amazing! A typical day involved starting at 10, having daily team meeetings to discuss tasks and priorities for clients, checking the media for coverage of campaigns, sending e-mails to book visits and meetings, looking up information to help with press releases, and sitting in on brainstorming sessions.

My internship was a great experience and I plan to keep in touch with them!

Summer 2018

This program gave me the chance to live my future career and become truly independent. Working in a whole new country was a great confidence booster, and the people at Fashion Week Internships really helped me to dive into the culture and experience. I am so grateful to have had this amazing opportunity, and came home with amazing memories, and new friends, having spent my first, and hopefully not my last, Summer in the UK.

My time in London and Paris was......

Exciting, exhilarating, fun, hard-work, challenging, crazy, off-beat, enjoyable, and unforgettable.

I found out about this program thru google and decided to reach out to find out more. I was surprised how quick my application process went, and decided it was an opportunity I didn't want to miss.

I lived in the same residence as many of the other interns from Fashion Week Internships, and we planned our own events and nights out. I met so many students from the program and I made friends from all around the world, Spain, Italy, Canada and home.

Getting to spend the weekend in Paris with my company was the best time ever.. We were backstage at Paris Couture working with a client, and still had time to see the city!

Even though the weekend in Paris was a real highlight, my time in London was fantastic! The company I worked for was really friendly and nice, and I learned so much.

Overall, it was such an amazing experience and I would go back and live it all over again in a second!

I was happy with everything.

Winter 2017 - FWI - Fashion Week Internships, London internship experience

It was incredible! I follow the Executive MBA at London College of Fashion, and used the internship to compliment and support my academic learning objectives. I interned with a Luxury Brand supporting their show prep for the upcoming London Fashion Week. The feedback FWI received from the partner was that everyone was overwhelmed by my dedication, and effort.. I hope I have a chance to work with them in the future! thanks! Eleonora

California dreaming

I completed a marketing internship with a modelling agency which was such an eye opening experience and really made me realise how much I love this industry. The social aspect was just amazing! Met some really really fun people, and made some friends for life! Definitely worth it, would highly recommend to anyone thinking of doing this program. If I had to change something it would be the housing. LA is a big city and it was difficult to find housing close enough. Overall an amazing Summer, in an amazing city.

How can this program be improved?
Accommodation options were limited.

Experience of a lifetime!

I spent an entire semester in London interning for a British couture house! I had the support of the faculty to help plan the program, and they liaised with the program provider so I was able to earn credit.
My experience in the city was brilliant. Every weekend we discovered new places, and it was easy meeting people. I feel honored to have been given the opportunity to learn so much, and would love to visit London and intern again in fall.

How can this program be improved?
I really enjoyed every aspect, but would like to see more assistance for vegetarians in the residence, as most of the food was more suited to meat-eaters.

LFW 2016

The team were lovely, welcoming and very helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The only downside was not being able to stay longer as I felt it would have broadened my understanding of the business and given me the chance to meet more people, despite that it was great to work in a renowned agency especially during fashion week!

I just wanted to say many thanks for all your support, liaising and organisation on such short notice and I would highly recommend the internship and your company.

How can this program be improved?
For me everything was fine.

Perhaps having someone at the airport to meet would be nice.
Yes, I recommend this program
