Whoever it is, it is always sad. We ain't out of the woods yet are we?
Comment on: Why no wifi Pitti?
MICAM, a few years ago, when it was in the old fairgrounds. We already had wifi everywhere in London by then.
I needed to send an email and went to the information centre to find out if there was a hotspot at the fair. I remembered the response. 'What is the Wifi?' :D
C'mon Italy, do keep up!

They had a womenswear hall in the past, what are they on about? I remember there being one, I didn't imagine it. :D
Comment on: Arcadia interns paid a year after working
When I graduated internships didn't exist. I got a minimum wage job as a junior designer and just about scraped by.
As I don't come from a wealthy family there is no way I'd have been able to become an intern had I graduated now.
I would need to eat, you know, it's not about wanting something badly enough, it's about not starving to death.
If you make someone work and you don't pay them you are basically telling them they are worthless.
I've never heard of accountants and lawyers doing unpaid internships but in fashion you get it all the time. Would you ask your accountant to do a 'free trial or project to see if he was good enough?' Wonder what he would say? :D
Lest we forget that unpaid internships are actually illegal in the UK, funny that this article doesn't mention this. Note to Philip Green, you're supposed to pay them as well you know. Don't forget that bit :)
