Who are we?
Our names are Andrea and Karoline; we both live in Hillerød and we love jewellery. Now we would like to write a little about our week at Sistie. Interning is really great! Or I guess that depends where you do your internship. We were lucky enough to get an internship at Sistie, and it was really an inspiring and cool experience.
The beautiful new brand
We started the week with a tour and met the Sistie team. They were all very welcoming and sweet, so it was definitely a good start. Every morning we packed web orders and did some practical work. For example, filling up boxes and getting envelopes ready for web orders. We also talked a lot with Kamille who told us about the new jewellery brand – Sistie. Kamille is the designer behind Izabel Camille and the new sister brand Sistie. The jewellery was very pretty and very much our style. Therefore, it was cool that we got to give our opinions and ideas for the projects. We thought it was very exciting, especially because there was a focus on making it a brand for young girls and that made our opinions relevant to Kamille.
Cool Instagram photos
During the week we took lots of cool photos that were, among other things, used for Sistie’s Instagram. It was cool to try all the jewellery, but of course we also had a few favourites. During the work with Sistie we went different places in Hillerød with Sara who is an intern from KEA (Copenhagen Business Academy). She was really nice and helped us with a lot of the photos for Sistie’s Instagram and website.
Meetings in a cool way
The first meeting we were at was with Sara and Kamille. Here we saw some awesome drawings that Sara had done on her iPad for the first Sistie collection. It was inspiring to see her ideas and thoughts about how the brand should develop in the future. Wednesday afternoon Karen Simonsen came, and we had a cool meeting about Sistie’s magazine and their Instagram feed. She was also very open to our ideas, so it was cool to feel like what we said had value.
Overall this week has been a success. We have definitely gotten some insight into the jewellery business and how it works. We have had the opportunity to have influence on the different decisions and gotten to try a bunch of cool jewellery. We have both been happy to be here, and we do not want to forget the experience.
