Alone in the cage: How the “relentlessly confident” Alexa Conomikes has overcome adversity to step into the role of goalkeeper

At her internship, Alexa Mouta, BC '13, delves into an aspect of the fashion world that few think about when dreaming of magazines and clothing design. She works with the practical and business sides of fashion as a Barneys web marketing intern. Don't let this fool you -- suits aren't mandatory in this part of the industry. Alexa proves that all parts of the business require an eye for style with her classy and comfortable wardrobe, composed of pieces any fellow fashion intern would love to call their own. Katie Best-Richmond: How would you describe your personal style? Alexa Mouta: I would say I'm generally pretty casual. Even working at Barneys, I don't really wear heels that often. I like casual, but I definitely like adding in some fun pieces. I love wearing comfy materials and anything that is generally comfortable. KBR: What is your favorite piece to wear? AM: A sweater by Alexander Wang. I wear it literally everywhere. It's a black, oversized sweater and I'm obsessed with it. I wear it out. I wear it to the gym. I wear it everywhere.

I got an internship at Harper's Bazaar and that opened my eyes to the opportunities in the fashion world, especially the corporate fashion world and working for specific brands....
