Figleaves. Figleaves? The word pops into your head and you think...underwear! Bra’s, knickers, shorties and thongs, right? Well thankfully, during my week as an intern with the Figleaves marketing department, I was pleased to find that the company offers a lot more than just underwear, not to mention learning more about the fashion world then I ever would have done by reading my favourite magazines.
At first I was very nervous, but the team were very welcoming and looked after me, thanks guys! The highlights included....
• Having my own point of view really valued
• Getting a fresh look at the website
• Sitting on yoga balls at the desk instead of chairs, working those abs!
• Having a sneak preview at the Christmas catalogue and helping to proof it for publishing.
• And thankfully not being ordered to make endless cups of tea and coffee.
On Tuesday I sat in on a photo shoot, watching the model prance around in her underwear took a little getting used to, but was lovely and she even joined in the chocolate scoffing session at tea time in the studio, to my surprise! I also loved getting a sneak peak at what’s coming up over the next few months, and oooo you’re in for a treat my friends!
Elle Macpherson Intimates...for starters, WHAT a woman, and secondly WHAT a collection! Phwoar looking at the range on the Figleaves site, I am worried about the health of my keyboard – doubting dribble does it much good.
These are a few of my personal favourites, hoping to invest in the third cheeky blue number by the end of the week. Age 16, I won’t be needing the maternity bra (red) anytime soon, but isn’t it great to offer some sexy lingerie, to give mums-to-be a boost when they’re pregnant? The lingerie world and Elle (we’re on first name terms) totally agree. Figleaves belives every woman, whatever size, has a right to look and feel fabulous – and who wouldn’t agree with that!
