Wanted to talk a little about my internship at Tank! I worked there for 2 months this past summer, and it was a really amazing experience.
My first day was funny. The office was a little empty, and I was the only intern around. I started helping out with some research, and after half and hour, I was told that Scott Schuman from The Sartorialist (OH MY GOD) was coming to the office to photograph Caroline Issa, my boss. I went mental, because The Sartorialist is the first blog I started following, ever. It has been my daily inspiration since I'm 14. And in my first day working in a fashion magazine, I was going to meet the creator of that blog! I was super exited.
So we (Olimpia) had to clean the office for his visit, and so I did it. The office was smelling like flowers, and we ordered some bouquets for the office. Later in that week, they putted in our table:
Flower for the interns!
Scott Shuman came and it was really surreal to see him, and Caroline, who I admired since she became notable in street style shots. I was in my place.
I enjoyed so much the day that the hours passed like minutes, and soon it was time to go home, but I didn't wanted to! I finally had the opportunity to experience what I wanted to do for life, and I didn't wanted to let it go. But I did go home at the end... hehe.
Here are some pictures and the video of Caroline shot by Scott, for J.Crew:
You can see my parka on the chair behind Caroline!!!
