Meet My Fall Intern: Stephanie

Hi! My name is Stephanie Griffin!

Follow her on Instagram ('cause she is THE coolest):

Where are you from?

Cape cod, Massachusetts!

Where do you go to school and what is your major?

Fashion Institute of Technology and Fashion Business Management

How did you end up in NYC?

I always dreamed of moving to New York City, and when college presented the opportunity I immediately accepted.

What are your interests?

In my free time I love to dress up and take pictures with my friends for Instagram. I just discovered that disposable camera's are cool again so I've recently been investing in those. Also, I can usually be found going out to eat, thrifting, attending live music, exploring new parts of the city, and escaping to the beach whenever I get the chance!

Who is your style icon?

The Olsen twins and Danielle Bernstein

What is your go-to look?

It really depends on my mood, but I’m a sucker for a good jumpsuit or an oversized vintage tee and high waisted jeans

What is your favorite look from Madisen on Madison blog?

I am a big fan of athleisure-chic, so I am really into Madisen's post about what to wear on Super Bowl Sunday. This has been a huge trend this past year, and I think Madisen combined the perfect mix of both comfy and stylish into one outfit.

How did you get the gig working with Madisen on Madison?

I came across her Instagram and messaged her to see if she was hiring! Turns out she was, and I grabbed coffee with her a few weeks later!

So far...what is your favorite part about working with Madisen on Madison?

I love how personable Madisen is. It makes it really easy and fun to work with her! She also has a lot of experience in the industry so I am looking forward to learning more from her. A few perks of the job are working on cool projects and attending events like NYFW in the fall!!

What are your aspirations or goals?

I have dreamt of working in fashion for as long as I can remember. I have already reached my goal of getting several amazing internships in NYC and working with many inspiring mentors a long the way, but ultimately, I would love to start my own company or brand one day, whether it be blogging or personal styling!

How do you feel like this internship will prepare you for the future?

This internship has already taught me that time management is crucial, especially when working on multiple projects at once. Also, learning the back bone of blogging has helped me see what it takes to create a strong brand and I can use this experience to cultivate my own brand one day!

What are your fall plans for the school year?

My plan is to finish up my last fall semester at FIT strong! I want to join the entrepreneurship club and network myself with other students and teachers working in fashion. Connections are everything in this industry! Also, I plan on attending NYFW with Madisen and killing it with the blog!! #dreamteam

So excited to work with you, Stephanie! I can't wait to see all that we do! xoxo - Madisen
