As fashion week fastly approached, I inherited Andrew Serrano as an intern/assistant due to the desperate fact that I had no one else. He actually caught on quickly and showed a bit of promise, minus his lack of attention to detail, and to my surprise a drug habit, which he tried to push on to others.
Then, of course, my favorite is Stefanie Skinner. She's a sweet girl from the midwest looking to fulfill her childhood dream. She is quite the team player and the most loyal employee I have known. About four years ago she began as a fashion week intern at People's Revolution. She has since really grown into an incredible asset to the team and is trying her best to stay afloat.
If it wasn't for Mercury being in retrograde, everything may not have been as big a disaster. Low and behold technology issues blessed us. Now, this brings us to Chado Ralph Rucci. I had been working on his show where I focused most of my energy, a fifteen hour seating process, fun times! When it was time to print out seating assignments and email all the guests, all of my hard work went out the window. Technology, a usually dependable asset failed. For the first time ever technology became a liability. At this point all I could do was stay calm, focussed and pick up the pieces to the best of my ability.
I love your bold ness and blunt ness during your blog and look forward to more insight from you during the coming episodes.
I must say i LOVE LOVE LOVE Robyn. I remember the first time i saw Robyn i was drawn by her walk. Its very je ne sais pas...fierce?
Snow White with razor blades carry such an image, funny and deadly. The technology snafu reminds me of my days working as an assistant. You think life couldn't get much worse. But tomorrow is another day. And life goes on. Work hard, but play hard too. 1st episode was fantastic.
Totally fascinated by People’s Revolution show. Can’t get enough of Robyn’s sweet demeanor and beauty, yet, evident laser sharp office manager. If Kelly were my dear baby sister I would not admire and like her any more than I do today. Most touching is Kelly’s fabulous adult-like relationship with her daughter. Bravo TV, bravoooo for the show.
I love your business, it's very well run, you guys do an amazing job dealing with the industry. Snow White With, you are particularly good at what you do. The observation I've made about you having to work with Voorhees is, I think she might have ADHD, in all seriousness. At least, she may want to get screened for it if she wants to work a job like that again. I have it, and I know several professionals with it who do very well in their jobs, and I don't just "see ADHD" everywhere...in fact I haven't ever seen anyone else on TV who I thought had it...her comments about needing training rather than just diving in, sink or swim; about being overwhelmed to the point of crying; saying she's doing 110 things at once, yet never accomplishing anything completely; asking questions others think she should be able to answer herself; constant mistakes...if she does have it, I wish she could have gotten help before this.
Really interesting post to read it in my opinion. By the way, why don't you submit this post to social bookmarks? This can bring pretty big traffic to this blog.
Um, are you sure it was technology? Because it sure seemed like simple user error, compounded by the incredible amounts of stress you heap onto assistants by giving them too much to do. If they had any breathing space, they might have figured out what the problem was instead of going into freak out mode and low-fi solutions.
Truly interesting site to read it to my thinking. The only question I have, why haven't you you submit that post to social media? It can bring rather big traffic to this blog.
