Just as we have moved into our very spacious new Kings Road HQ, I finally have to leave my role as the Fintern, after a summer of assisting Fin and Sally. Having done everything from the ubiquitous coffee run, to attending whole-sale meetings, updating this blog, and, of course, helping all the lovely customers who come up to our showroom, I will be soon be embracing a rather more academic lifestyle when I start at Cambridge University next week. With the thrice-weekly essays, a need for pulling constant all-nighters (working not partying) and transportation issues (how to look chic whilst pedalling a bike round cobbled streets) it would be rather easy to let sartorial standards slip. But future freshers need not fear – ever to the rescue we have come up with a few pointers for attending the lecture hall in style (and a pair of Fins).
Thanks so much to Fin and Sal for teaching me so much during my time here; not least the importance of weekly blow-drys, the need for American accents in every situation, and most of all for being such fantastic bosses! xxx
