As any New Yorker will tell you today, giant fluffy snow falling from the sky for about 12 hours in a festive mix of icy rain is no preferable way to enjoy your walk to/from work.

But fashion design interns have no complaints about romping into the gruesome wintry streets – be it for grommets or Starbucks.

The Milly internship is underway and I am learning a ton! From the design team to production to QA and beyond… everyone is on one floor and we get to interact with them as we carry out our various tasks.

Michelle Smith is kind of a big deal.

The Milly internship is amazing… but baby, it’s cold outside!
