Internship Abroad in Australia

25 Apr


WOW, what a crazy month I have had! Between putting on a collegiate dance recital, preparing for my summer abroad, and trying to keep up with classes and work, I have finally got a chance to share some exciting news. I have officially accepted an internship in Sydney, Australia with a privately owned retail fashion business, Pretty Girl Fashion Group.

ImagePGFG operates over 400 retail fashion outlets and owns four ladies fashion brands; Rockmans, BeMe, W. Lane, and Table Eight. Rockmans is a trendy line with the latest looks, BeMe is a plus size line offering the latest fashion, W. Lane is a basics and essentials line, and Table Eight is a work wear and suiting line. PGFG specializes in affordable wear for their customers. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work within their corporate office to gain more experience in fashion public relations.

I leave for Australia in exactly 20 days. My internship is scheduled for 12 weeks, Monday-FridayImage with full work days. I will be staying with a host family throughout my entire stay, which should prove to be very interesting. It is my hope to travel throughout Australia as much as I can as well as visit New Zealand and possibly Thailand. We fly back in mid August and stop in Hawaii for a one week vacation!

I’m allowed two bags to check for three months, so you can imagine my distress. I am suppose to work a fashion internship with Imagelimited clothing options to pack! So from here on out I am trying to plan accordingly and stock up on all my products to take over with me. It will be winter when I arrive in Australia (still about 60 degrees) so I am pretty clueless as to what sort of clothes to pack, especially color wise. I’m craving to wear all my U.S. summer clothes and colors but I do not think that will be an option for me. Sounds like lots of layering will be involved, which I do not hate, it just requires a lot more stuff to pack (hello vacuum sealed bags).

I am beyond excited for such a wonderful opportunity. This is all a new experience for me, so if anyone has helpful tips for traveling I would really appreciate the insight.

G’day Mate!
