Life as a StephieAnn Intern
Sometimes StephieAnn needs a bit of assistance in delivering the highest quality to you beauties. This year we’ve taken on two lingerie loving, self-titled Stephanista’s, so here’s more about the ladies behind the scenes of silk.
Retail and Marketing Manager
What are you studying at University?
I’m studying BA Journalism at Sussex University.
What do you aspire to do with your career?
I’ve always wanted to do something in fashion and I was so indecisive for ages on whether I wanted to delve into the illustration, designing, business or publishing side of the industry. I decided to go with the fashion magazine side of things as I love writing and you can still be creative hence which made my choice to study Journalism.
What’s a regular day at StephieAnn?
No days the same which makes it so fun! I’ve done so much already since I’ve been here from writing blog posts, organising collaborations to creating mood boards. We usually begin with a run down from Stephie at what needs to be done and then crack on with our tasks and our regular social media updates; I’m in charge of Twitter and Pinterest. It’s a great environment the three of us sit together and listen to the radio and Rachel and I sometimes spend lunch in Preston Park as it’s right by the office!
What’s your usual work day lunch?
I have a huge sweet tooth so I’ve been trying to be healthy. Usually I have a big salad with every veg under the sun, a bit of feta in the mix and some couscous on the same.
What’s your favourite day at StephieAnn so far?
100% my birthday! Stephie and Rachel were absolutely fab and surprised me with a bday breakfast of croissants, strawberries, bucks fizz and a delicious chocolate cake.
What’s your absolute favourite StephieAnn piece?
It’s a tough choice as I love all the patterns, I’m a huge fan of the Rose Kimono and the new collection which is absolutely beaut. However my dream piece is the Foxglove bra, it’s so beautiful, the white and foxglove pattern is so dainty.
Ask the Intern:
What’s your favourite food?
Oooo definitely something from the Japanese cuisine, anything they sell in Wagamamas is my fave.
Are you watching anything interesting at the moment?
I love any kind of period drama, I binged watch the Tudors but I’ve literally just started watching Versailles and I can already tell it’s going to be gripping.
Whose your fashion icon?
Phoebe Lettice, I love her quirky and daring style. I think its bold and playful, after all who wants to be boring?
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Definitely reality TV, I’m a sucker for indulging in Keeping Up with the Kardashians and I’ve recently been watching Love Island when I want some light viewing.
What’s your favourite animal?
I’m in love with dachshunds I want one so badly. I also really love marine life like sharks.
Where do you most want to go on holiday?
Somewhere hot like a beautiful island with loads of wildlife.
What’s your most proudest moment?
Getting into Uni was a massive achievement for me, I worked so hard. I revised constantly to a point where I actually looked disgusting, I didn’t wash my hair for about a week because I was so scared I’d fail. I was so relieved and proud when I found out my hardcore studying and greasy hair had paid off.
Do you have any pets?
I have a hamster called Cindy and a guinea pig called Timothy.

My go to drink is always a vodka Red Bull, but generally vodka with some kind of mixer.

Deffo doing something chilled thats not too intense, I feel like drinks at a cocktail bar is always a good option. Trying all the weird and wonderful concoctions can be a laugh.
What song are you loving at the moment?
I quite like anything from Pia Mia recently, or anything Clean Bandit ever does.
Where do you want to be in 10 years time?

A paper round when I was 14.
What dish is your speciality?
Oooo I can make a pretty good salad, I’m not talking basic I’m talking super salad.
If you could have a conversation with anyone from history who would you choose?

My favourite is anything Kinder, my consumption of Happy Hippo’s is pretty high.
What’s your horoscope?
I’m a Gemini.
