Fashion Marketing students internship success

Alexandra Williams at Alexander McQueen

The first cohort of BA (Hons) Fashion Marketing students eligible for placements has enjoyed exceptional success. Students have been working hard at a range of established and start-up brands, including Barbour and Ben Sherman.

Some of those students have opted for a year-long placement with one company, while others have split their sandwich year into two parts.

Alexandra Williams is one such student. She gained a placement at Alexandra McQueen, working as the menswear press intern, where she received glowing reviews from her managers. She has now moved on to a PR internship, at Burberry.

Similarly, Olivia Hubert has split her placement. For the first part of her sandwich year, Olivia worked hard at the Leeds-based, but internationally distributed bag company The Extras Group. While her main responsibilities were based around social-media marketing, she also had the opportunity to use her skills to contribute to a bag design that has subsequently been put into production. Olivia has now moved onto another Leeds-based company, Xsem, for a paid six-month internship in marketing.
