Daily Express internship

Today I learnt that a fashion cupboard isn't necessarily a cupboard...

I have just begun my first week of my one-month internship on the Daily Express fashion desk, which, you may be surprised to hear, is my first fashion-related placement. As such, I don't have particular expectations, aside from my hope that I will gain valued insight into the workings of a fashion department, and subsequently determine whether fashion journalism is the way forward.

Don't worry, I won't be shutting down my blog any time soon. But having completed my journalism degree (I finally graduate this Friday!), I am searching for the right job for me. Fashion journalism seems appropriate, but perhaps I ought to be doing something else other than fashion outside of my blogging activities. I won't know until I try a little piece of everything, I suppose.

You can follow my internship experiences throughout this month via Twitter. Of course, I can't reveal all that goes on inside Daily Express headquarters (pictured above), but I shall share with you what I can. If you have previously worked as a fashion desk intern, I'd love to hear about your experiences too.
