Brittany: I am from Farmingville, Long Island (Suffolk County)
BR|LGC: Where do you go to college? What is your major?
B: I go to Marist College and my major is Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Business.
BR|LGC: What department are you working in while interning here at B. Robinson?
B: I am working with both the Product Development team and the PR/Marketing team while interning here at B. Robinson.
BR|LGC: How would you describe your personal style?
B: I would describe my personal style as simple and chic. I like to be trendy, but don’t ever wear anything to over the top. I like to add accessories to my outfits to make it can stand out. My favorites are shoes, of course, as well as scarves and sunglasses.
BR|LGC: What is one item you own that has enormous value to you but none to anyone else?
B: I would have to say is a glittery bracelet that I wear every day. It’s purple and I won at an arcade but it is very special to me.
BR|LGC: Who is your style icon?
B: My style icon is Coco Chanel. Her style is timeless and I love that about her. My favorite quote from her is “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
BR|LGC: What is your favorite winter activity on your days off?
B: Watching a movie with a cup of hot chocolate!
BR|LGC: What did your first pair of sun glasses look like?
B: My first pair of sunglasses were huge over-sized black ones. The ones that are probably too big for my face, but make a statement.
BR|LGC: What is your current favorite song?
B: Definitely ‘I Knew You Were Trouble‘ by Taylor Swift.
B: Homemade holiday cookies.
BR|LGC: Where do you find outfit inspiration?
B: I find outfit inspiration mostly by what is showcased in window displays in stores. I also like to read fashion magazines and get ideas from them.
BR|LGC: Name one “now or never” moment in your life.
B: A “now or never” moment in my life was definitely my choice to study abroad in Florence, Italy for my entire freshman year of college. I knew that the opportunity to go abroad at such a young age would only come once in a lifetime. It was an experience of a lifetime – I would go back in a heartbeat!
BR|LGC: What is your dream job?
B: My dream job would be designing and creating fashion – product development is on the top of my list. I love everything about it from the colors to materials. I think creating a product is a journey that involves passion about what you are creating.
BR|LGC: What do you hope to learn and accomplish by interning at B. Robinson?
B: I hope to learn and accomplish a great deal while interning here at B. Robinson. I want my time here to be meaningful and I plan to make every day count! I want to learn about the product development process and gain a true understanding on what it takes to be a product developer. I hope to gain insight about the factories and how material is chosen as well.
I also want to learn about how the product is portrayed through publications. Marketing a product and creating “buzz” takes a lot of time and effort. The product must be in the right publication at the right time. It has to also be able to relate to the customer. Overall, I want my total experience here to be an amazing one and I have no doubts that it will be.
Thanks Brittany and welcome to the team!
