Kayla MacRae

Major: Apparel, Merchandising, and Design



Company/Organization: Autumn Cashmere
Company/Organization website: http://www.autumncashmere.com
Destination: New York, NY
Timeframe: Summer

Advisor/Coordinator Email: annthye@iastate.edu

I was responsible for...
-Helped price and merchandise the Women's Spring 2019 collection -Worked with e-commerce team to launch Fall 2018 line on the website -Assisted with multiple photoshoots -Maintained the upkeep of the showroom

I accomplished...
Since I was the only intern at Autumn Cashmere for the summer, I was able to overlook all of the different positions in the company. For the e-commerce team, I was able to research different women around the United States that are making an impact. These women this fall were gifted a sweater from us that said "Girl Boss". Being in charge of this was actually really cool and it felt good to be trusted with this.

I learned...
Just because you may not always love your internship it doesn't mean that you still don't need to be 100% everyday. These people will become your recommendations for other job opportunities and will help you in your future endeavors. Connect with them!

Advice for others...
Go somewhere where you've always wanted to go. I've always wanted to go to New York but never really had the time or excuse to go. This was such an awesome experience and really put me out of my comfort zone.
