The Marie Claire Experience

Mahlatse James, fashion and lifestyle writer, experienced what it’s like to work at Marie Claire for the last three months. He says:

‘I served the most amazing three months of my life under guardianship of some of the best -and I mean; some of THE VERY BEST, creative folk in the land. To cut a fun-long-tale-short, I joined the team as an intern (darn the bloody hiring freeze), in the right time. International blogging sensation Bryan Boy was brought in the country by the glossie to host a few workshops and more importantly, to hand over the inaugural Best Fashion Blogger award at the annual Marie Claire Prix d’Exellence de la Mode. You won’t understand my borderline out of control haul if I dare express how I felt when my very first duty was to show him around Joburg’s hot spots, lunches and plenty shopping during his stay. As if that was not enough to set my pores into an over-perspiration drive, I got to write about it on www.marieclaire.co.za’
