PR Couture Partners with FashionInternships.com

prada.jpgI’m happy to announce that PR Couture readers will now benefit from the job sleuthing powers of Carla Carstens, creator and writer of fashioninternships. Each Wednesday, Carla will be highlighting a weekly fashion internship, hand-picked for PR Couture readers. Swanky eh?

Carla, a recent graduate of University of California, San Diego with a Bachelor’s in Communications, created her blog out of frustration that most fashion internship websites charged a pesky membership fee – something that doesn’t mesh well with the budget of a free worker-bee. She scours the internet for fashion industry internships and updates her blog several times a week.

Carla is enjoying her last summer of freedom before joining the workforce in Newport Beach, CA, where she is interning in the marketing department at RVCA clothing. Previous internships include Escada, JANE Magazine, Gucci, HollieTen, and Volcom. Carla plans to pursue a career in Fashion PR or marketing. You can get a hold of Carla at fashionintern[at]gmail.com.
