Ja'shae

Name: Ja'Shae Jones

Major: Merchandise Marketing

Graduated: June 2014

How did your Zappos paid internship come about? I learned about the Zappos internship through the FIDM Career Network. I applied for the position, and proceeded to follow up through email. I was then was prompted to create a virtual interview video where I had to answer various questions and record myself. I also had to complete a challenge project on the future of consumer shopping.

After the first round I was asked to have a few more phone and Skype interviews with some members of the merchandising team from Zappos. I was soon after offered the position as a merchandising assistant intern.

Where are you based? Did you have to relocate? I am originally from Ohio, but I went to the FIDM Orange County campus my first year, so I lived there for a year then I proceeded to move to Los Angeles where I finished my Merchandise Marketing Degree at the LA campus. For the internship, I had to relocate to Las Vegas, where the Zappos headquarters are located.

What does your internship entail? As a merchandising assistant intern I wear many hats. In addition to normal buying and merchandising responsibilities, I assist in order writing, inventory analysis, inventory management, product selection, product categorization, invoice reconciliation, vendor communication, and marketing discussions. As an intern I also get to shadow other departments and categories, other than fashion merchandising, to really get great insight on how the business is run from start to finish.

What are your impressions of the company so far? Zappos is known for the unique company culture, and it really is an incredible experience. Every day has been a new adventure, and I am constantly surrounded by the most amazing people. Each day gets even better and better.

  Color story copy

The textile story for Fall 2014 is bright color and bold pattern. Abstract and figurative prints and patterns in primary colors splash into every arena: interiors, fashion, art, design, and architecture. Bright hues of vibrant red, magenta, mimosa yellow, container green, and bottle blue excite the eye and the senses.

Patterns that display a color code of numbers, letters, and symbols infused with buoyant, optimistic brights catch the eye. Interior and fashion fabrics display carnival-esque play. Slashes of color bring out texture against texture. Sexy reds from bubble gum to crimson pair up with warm Black Tea, the new neutral.

Interest in travel to distant planets inspires a sci-fi viewpoint, with amber, plum, and the new shade of deep charcoal, Cloak Gray.
