Meet the intern…

Hello, I’m Betsy!

10176006_10152379313556514_810308083_n

A little about yourself? I am a Chicago native, but I am currently attending the University of Cincinnati’s DAAP program for fashion design! DAAP is the best thing that has ever happened to me (despite spending 40 hours working on one project). I am currently interning at Mary Helen Clothing and it has been a huge learning experience and has taught me an unfathomable amount. Aside from my life in DAAP & working, I enjoy spending time creating art, laying on the beach, and grabbing some good food with even better people. I do not have much free time, but the free time that I do have I love spending outside running or sitting on my balcony.

What gets you going? Coffee. And then more coffee.

Why fashion? Why NOT fashion? I cannot think of one thing in the world I would rather be doing. I get to express myself through the clothing I create. Mixing my love for art & my love for clothing I have honestly found the perfect place I need to be…a fashion design major.

Why Mary Helen Clothing is a PERFECT first CO-OP? Want to learn how to run a small business? Mary Helen Clothing. Want to improve your sewing abilities? Mary Helen Clothing. Enhance your marketing skills? Improve your Adobe Suite skills? Learn how to use Garage Band or Excel? Need to know how to order fabrics, deal with boutiques, or keep track of inventory? Mary Helen Clothing will teach you it all! 

Where I see myself in 10 years? This is always the toughest question for me. I can’t ever decide if I want to be styling Giuliana Rancic before she hits the E! News stage, doing costume design for Beyoncé (I wish), or using my ideas to help design for a brand. I think I need a little time (or a few years) for that question.

Can you leave us with a few fun facts? 1. I love animals, more than one ever should. 2. I listen to talk radio every morning. 3. I am huge Chicago Blackhawks fan. Go Hawks!

summer

with temperatures rising so are our day dreams about summer…

the smell of fresh cut grass lingering in the air, listening to the squeals of neighborhood children splashing in their wade pools, the warmth radiating from your pink cheeks, and our rambunctious little ones are home all day to keep us on our toes! there are no busier summers than the one’s you spend driving the kids from camp to camp while trying to squish in a family vacation or an evening grill out with friends and family.
