Supervisors + Mentors:
Interns will work together as a team with the CES directors in 6 creative facets: fashion, advertising, graphics, writing, photo, and video, as their supervisors. Interns will always be with and have access to supervisors. Additionally, CES will assign each intern a non-supervisor industry mentor, key players who work closely and loyally with CES, giving interns more industry perspective and connections, and another chance to ask questions or bring up ideas and concerns.
CES works very collaboratively in that Instead of one person overseeing each project, such as events, lookbooks, runway, we take a different approach; each team player has a role in each project. So instead of having 1 specialized team player on a project, we are putting the gifts of 6 different team players into every project. The result is that everything we do is multifaceted. This workflow is a mirror of the experiences we sell: collaboration. At CES runway shows for example, we have models, hmua, photographers, designers, etc all working together- collaboration, so it only makes sense we operate our business the same way.
