Yesterday morning had an exciting, interesting, and a very beneficial start to my day. I was fortunate enough to sit in on a meeting between Iconix and OK! Magazine. In the meeting included; the Editor in Chief, Sarah Ivens, the publisher, the Managing Editor from London, and a few fashion editors. I believe the purpose of the meeting was to establish a better communication system and deeper relationship between the two corporations. OK!'s magazine attracts readers mainly from ages 18 to 34, which gives them more interest in working with Iconix. In the meeting they discussed possible exclusive parties that Iconix could let OK! press into, and OK! had events that could possibly be sponsored by Iconix brands, or people dressed in Iconix brand clothing. The way everyone spoke so happily and smoothly kept me very interested, and being in a room with so many talented and successful people was encouraging to me without them even knowing it.
After the meeting, the other intern, Jessica and I started to label the invitations. There was nothing else to do except bond and have her give me the low-down on 'One Tree- Hill', considering I have never seen an episode in my life and this show is "what she lives for." The piles of invites were organized by New York, Out of State, China, Out of the Country, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus. '' Lunch was taken in the middle of labeling invites, and we were joined by a friend of Jessica's. It was a nice lunch, but the weather here is a killer.
When I returned to the office, I ran to get fashionaunta spaghetti with meatballs. The man behind the counter rolled his eyes at me due to the fact that my order was this: Spaghetti with meatballs, drain the pasta, extra sauce on the side, with one side of parmesan cheese, and another of oregano. Thankfully, and to my surprise, they nailed the order and it was perfect. I ran back up to the office and handed her the complex lunch. Mind you, she had just gotten back from lunch with Tom Florio, the publisher of Vogue, at The Four Seasons.
A little later, everyone was called into the conference room to have a discussion about who the next candidates could possibly be for the new Op cast. We need to replace Anna-Lynne, Sophia, Solange, Bow Wow, Brody, Cody, and Joel. I'll start giving out hints of possible replacements once I do my job of snooping.
After work, I joined a few family members and my amazing cousin Geri for dinner to celebrate Geri's 26th birthday! I stuffed myself with french fries and filet mignon, which only left me knocking out in the back of the car on the ride back to Long Island.
