About us

FreeFashionInternships.com was launched in March 2007 using online resources to open the world of fashion to anyone who has a desire to work in the industry. In less than two years, FreeFashionInternships.com became the premiere resource for fashion internships with listings ranging from couture to action sports, design to public relations.


Carla Isabel Carstens is the founder of FreeFashionInternships.com. Her interest in fashion internships stemmed from her participation in internship programs while she attended the University of California, San Diego. She interned at companies such as Escada, JANE Magazine, Gucci, Volcom and RVCA.

Born and raised in Southern California, Carla currently resides in New York City and works in fashion public relations. She has received professional certificates in Public Relations and Digital Media Marketing through NYU's School of Continuing and Professional Studies, as well as a Masters in Strategic Communications from Columbia University.
