We’d like to introduce you guys to our latest superstar intern: Ellis O’Gorman. Ellis has been helping us out in the studio since the beginning of August, she’s an amazing copy writer and works hard to make sure we are visible to our online social media network. One of her first missions was helping out at our Launch night back in September, making sure that all our guests we warmly welcomed and could walk away with a lovely Antithesis garment in hand! Ellis has previously been studying an online Foundation Retail Marketing and Management degree whilst training as a creative events planning & promotions assistant at a samples sales company based in Sussex. Ellis is originally from Brighton and has recently been living in Central London, but will be returning home to the seaside this December. We’ll miss her terribly, but our loss is Brighton’s gain! Before we let her go off to her bright future we wanted to share her lovely smile and experiences with you!
Why did you choose to work with Antithesis?
I was first introduced to Antithesis by an internship company who had been helping me to find the right kind of internship for me. I looked them up online and the minute I watched their first video and saw how clever the designs were I really wanted to go and interview for the opportunity to work with Antithesis. Not only did I love the designs, but the whole concept behind Antithesis intrigued me and I’m particularly interested in womenswear. So I was really excited for the chance to work for a label that I found both interesting and exciting.
What are your ambitions for the future?
I would like to go on and study a Fashion Marketing & Promotion course either at University or through an online course. I would also like to spend some more time getting experience within a marketing role at larger fashion companies and carry on learning more about this career path to (fingers crossed) work within a role in this field later on.
Have these ambitions changed since working with Antithesis?
Not at all, if anything I feel like it’s helped me to be more certain about the career path I hope to take. I feel less indecisive about where I want to go in the Fashion industry.
What have you most enjoyed doing in your time at Antithesis?
I’ve really enjoyed contributing towards the blog posts, I enjoy creative writing so it’s been fun to get the chance to do quite a bit of it. I’ve also loved learning more about sustainable fashion as it wasn’t something I had always paid attention to before. Its been great to learn more about it, and I’ve even found myself thinking a bit more about my purchases and what I’m wearing these days.
What will you remember most about your time at Antithesis?
There’s quite a few things I’ll remember about my time at Antithesis. I think I’ll remember the experience as a whole and the great time I’ve had working for Antithesis. I’ll remember the Launch Night at the Park Plaza which was an amazing evening as well as spending some time getting to see first hand the processes that go into designing a collection. I’m also going to remember some of the good tips on how to be an effective marketeer that I’ve picked up whilst working for Antithesis.
