Softly changing hues, in a diffused rainbow of colors, offer a dramatic but divine horizon. Sunset sights, together with ombré yarns and faded tie-dye, imbue knitwear with a beautiful dreaminess.
I never had an interest in Ralph Lauren Internships because it is not my style, however it is such an established business, I decided to go. I learned some really good tips on how to get an internship and how motivated you have to be. I learned that I really need to make a web portfolio so that I can pass it on easily. I also learned that I need to expand my excel, word and power point skills. Just because we are marketing students, we still need to be able use our creative minds. Resume’s should not be too lengthy because they get boring so it needs to be just one page. Also, showing the graduation date is really important so that people know when you could potentially interview for a job. Ralph Lauren offers college students an opportunity to be apart of the team. Some of there internships are paid and provide hands on exposure to the design division, including concept, illustration and product development. Some of the responsibilities include assisting the development process and the product design. Another key element in getting a good internship is writing thank you notes for the interview and the opportunity.
Spring 2013 is inspired by the oceanic worlds, transparent fibers and the way diffused light emulates the layers of the sea surface. Rippled knits and ruffles mimic the underwater world. Inspiration from labyrinthine coral and underwater sea creatures is found throughout.
Turquoise and teal are the spring colors. The oceanic palette brings attention to detail and dimensional forms. Derek Lam SS13 created an ocean wave look with casual pants with a faded dye look. The ripple effect creates a nautical effect.

The trends and inspirations seen throughout Milan’s fashion week this past month were very obvious. A lot of floral prints were seen in shows such as Blugirl and Just Cavilli. There were many water color floral designs on lightweight separates. There were also a few oriental styles. rich colorful silks and kimono style jackets carried the floral feel at a different level. Designers such as Etro and marni really represented that Japanese.
Another obvious trend was cold stripes. Dolce & gabbana, Fendi and Moschino sent models down the catwalk in very bold stipes and matching skirt ensembles. This seasons tones are all about the bright colors. A lot of Orange, Light blue and yellows are used.

Experiencing the Little Black Dress Exhibit, by Andre Leon Talley, at our very own Scad MOA, is any Fashionistas dream come true. This exhibit represented uniqueness because there were not only dresses from the past, but also dresses from 2012. It had a very historical feel with a hint of modernism. Often when we hear “Little Black Dress,” we think of a literal “LBD.” However, the little black dress continues to evolve as fashion does. Fashion is it’s own language and is spoken in new ways everyday.
All of the different designs, fabrics, and aesthetics in this collection of dresses featured were so very different from one another. One of my favorite dresses was the 2006 wool Chanel dress.
We are so lucky to have experienced this collection of dresses right at our school. It is motivating to see what myself and my classmates can work up to in our careers.
