My first week as a Hissy Fit intern was pretty amazing as far as new experiences go. Hissy Fit is a small sassy company half way through its second year of trade, it is also run solely by Danielle (one of the nicest people I have ever met).
On my official first day I was shown around the studio and the rest of the building as we did a run through of the typical health and safety rules. So I could get an idea of what working for Hissy Fit would entail my first job was to be a shadow. I Learnt pretty much everything that goes into owning and running a business such as;
- Packing/sorting stock
- Updating social media pages (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook)
- Processing packing orders
- Planning & organising photo shoots
As the week progressed things started getting more exciting. There were days when all I had to do was sit at a sewing machine tagging and labelling then folding and packing, all of which are very crucial to processing orders on time. Then I got to tag along to my first Hissy Fit photo shoot, which I was in charge of documenting for various social media sites and “snap chatting” the behind the scenes to promote the release of new products. There were a lot more tasks you’d expect a typical intern to be given but I will spare you the boring details, not everything about fashion is fabulous (especially when your organising coat hangers).
