My Summer as an Escapada Living Intern
This summer I was fortunate enough to be selected as the Escapada Living Creative Intern. During the internship, which ran late May to late August, I was able to learn a lot about retail and the fashion industry, and the hard work that goes into every flawless piece and post.
As the creative intern, I worked on some of Escapada Living’s social media platforms, such as Twitter and Pinterest. Social media at Escapada is carefully cultivated, in order to keep that breezy, beachy, resort feel we all adore. It’s tougher work than it seems, but the Escapada Team always delivers that perfect post.
I was able to sit assist with some of the photo-shoots for pieces. There are days of prep work that into a few hours of shooting. On the day of the shoots, we arrived bright and early. The models were always the sweetest girls and made every movement look effortless. The Escapada Team prepped hard for these days, and they always ran smoothly. I can assure you there isn’t a harder working team of people around.
Other parts of my internship entail working in Photoshop to ensure the photos were picture perfect for blogs and catalogs. I worked on the website and began to see exactly how intricate websites are, and the work that goes into creating a seamless online shopping experience. I was also able to get involved with the products, whether it was sitting in on our new season’s Launch Party, or working in our warehouse.
Another part of my internship has been writing blog posts, which has been one of my favorite parts of this internship. Escapada Living is a clothing line that is as versatile as the person that wears it, and that is what this blog has been for me. I have loved writing travel pieces, trying recipes, and learning more about the Escapada Living team.
Most of all, I have loved working with the Escapada Living Team. The people who work at Escapada Living are dedicated to their work, and to the customers. They go the extra step, put in the extra hours, and have been incredible role models. They make “going to work” a fun experience, one that I look forward to. After all, “it’s no coincidence that ‘escapada’ means escape.”
