Interning with a Designer



This summer I have an amazing marketing internship with Canadian designer CAITLIN POWER. Her androgynous clothing line is a lot of fun to style with, and can make any woman look and feel powerful. One of Caitlin's signatures is her use of leather when designing and is yet another thing that makes her collections so great to work with!

Here is a Polyvore board I put together after being inspired by the CAITLIN POWER line. I'm currently obsessed with this pair of leather shorts from her SS12 line and decided to play off its masculine quality by using lighter, girly pieces. So I didn't completely lose the edginess of the shorts that I love, I made sure to use harder, dark accessories to tie everything together.


Caitlin Power Shorts




I feel so lucky to have an internship that I really, really enjoy. I am learning a lot about the industry and have a great team to work with - oh, and I get to be close to beautiful clothing pieces like these shorts every day in the studio! And how could anyone be upset with that?


                                                                   Cheers!
