Haha, so true. I acquired a lot of freebies genuinely when I was an intern, but I can totally imagine Fashion Assistants having things falling in their bags 'accidentally'. It's one of the perks of the job!

I have a love-hate relationship with Fashion Internships! Returns are just a never-ending cycle of boredom.
