Internship Diary: Interviewing through Indy 

On the day of my internship interview for PATTERN, I accidently arrived 25 minutes early. I sat in my car and stressfully scrolled through Instagram for almost half an hour. I feel like this sums me up fairly well as a person: stressfully over prepared, kind of awkward and ready to put my head down and work.

Indiana Tailor Co-Designs Suit for Post Malone 

International popstar Post Malone is used to standing out. From his face and neck tattoos to his painted nails to his gold teeth, he’s certainly not one to go unnoticed. This stands true when it comes to fashion as well.
