I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling Zazou 22!

Hello little zebras! Today, July 30, 2013, is my 22nd birthday and my 12th day here at my Zazou and Sterling Styles internship. Therefore, the alternative title to this post could be Internship Day 12!

It has already been a busy morning. After arriving at 9:30 a.m., I changed the links on our Mail Chimp email blasts from venue information to show information. This means that when customers click the links, they will receive information about each show that Zazou is manning a showroom within, instead of just information about the location hosting the event. This was a learning experience for me, and I am glad I was able to change this information today.

Additionally, I was able to email product information and images to NYNOW, a site for one of the showroom locations Zazou will be participating in. The below image will be posted on NYNOW, allowing buyers and other exhibitors to view the information in a Pinterest-like manner.

This is the 6455 Dappled Knit Loop, and I must say, I think the model looks absolutely stunning!

I have more than 800 Sterling Styles descriptive blurbs done, so I will hopefully complete the last 200 today.

The letter for Zazou sales representatives has been finalized as well, and I shall await more assignments from the head honchos here at Zazou and Sterling Styles.

Thank you so much for sharing my birthday with me. Think good thoughts about a fun and productive day, while enjoying this very appropriate Taylor Swift song!!

It is already Thursday morning of July 25, 2013! Where or where has the time gone?!

Although I am primarily on my computer during my hours here at Sterling Styles, Inc. and Zazou, time usually flies by, which is why, I suppose, I should not be surprised that it is already the end of my sixth week at my internship.

As always, I will be working diligently on the Sterling Style descriptive blogs and various email blasts for Sterling Styles and Zazou.

I will also be discussing a letter to prospective buyers draft with Christopher Carroll, who will surely give me important tips and instructions on how to properly write and forward this important Zazou letter.

Also, in between Zazou1982 blog posts and my other Zazou assignments, I will be admiring the new Zazou Fall 2013 Catalog, which features beautiful scarves and fingerless gloves that all embody luminosity, texture and warmth. I will use what I learned in AMM 443A, APparel Market Analysis Report. That class primarily consisted of writing, an activity I indulge in every single day here at Sterling Styles and Zazou.

Thank you for reading, and cheers to a productive and successful work day!

Geometric lines in varying hues of blue create graphic, infinite squares in this Parquet scarf, a piece from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection, which will soon be posted on zazou.com

What is so appealing about this certain accessory is how the intrinsic lines resemble squared pools in differing depths. The lighter blue is like a shallow pond, whereas the darker blues are like deep oceans you could almost dove into!

Good morning little Zebras!

Today is Thursday and, as usual, there is a lot on the agenda 🙂

As you can see in my silly self portrait, some color has been added to the office. There are currently 11 different styles of blouses hanging on the metal bars in my room here at Sterling Styles and Zazou. All of these Sterling designs are from the “Champagne Collection” and must be given names, which is where I come in. Hopefully, I will be able to do a similar task for new Zazou scarves as well.

I will also continue to write the hundreds of descriptive blurbs necessary on the Sterling Styles website, create four more Mail Chimp ads for Zazou and Sterling, work on this blog and, this afternoon, call our friend Christopher Carroll and discuss tasks associated with the Zazou website and the upcoming Zazou Fall catalogue.

Since I have conversed with so many different people associated in the industry, whether it is with my bosses here or with Chris and Claudia, and I have extended my knowledge I learned about the industry in AMM 496, Issues in Retail Management.

And when I get home this evening, I plan to sleep, sleep and sleep some more!

As always, wish me luck and enjoy Zazou1982!

Think . . . think . . . think.

What am I pondering, you may ask? Well, I am of course asking myself what movie I can choose for the fifth installment of “Scarf Stars,” in which I highlight a cinematic scarf for the entertainment of the wonderful readers of Zazou1982!

For now, however, I will think about my movie selection in the back of my head as I inform you about my eighth day here as a Sterling Styles and Zazou copywriting intern.

Yes, it is hard to believe that I have already dedicated approximately 55 hours here as an intern – time flies when I am doing what I love: writing!

As you may have noticed in my previous post, I recently wrote the profile piece on Claudia Koch, one of the founders of the Zazou brand. If you have not already, please check out the article and read about the wonderfully quirky Claudia.

For the rest of the rest of the day, I will continue on numerous tasks that were assigned to me two weeks ago. I still have hundreds more blurbs to write for the products of Sterling Styles, Inc. I also have to complete more email blasts on Mail Chimp for upcoming shows for Zazou and Sterling Styles in cities such as Los Angeles, Dallas and New York City. This morning, I was able to complete blast designs for Trendz (Florida Fashion Focus), which will take place at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

These trade shows are extremely important for the company and the Sales Representatives the company employs, I learned first hand about sales rooms and the duties of sales reps in AMM 471, Wholesale Operations.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll update again on Thursday 🙂

END OF THE DAY UPDATE: Remember how I have been assigned to write blurbs for all of the garments on the Sterling Styles‘ website? So far, I have made a small dent, and have completed approximately 356 descriptions! Just a few hundred more to go! Also, one of my newer tasks will be to assign names to some of the newer Sterling Styles merchandise. Stay tuned 😀
