Team Tuesday: Meet Leticia Domenech, Third Wave Fashion’s Editorial Intern
TWF: What do you always have with you?
LD: My iPhone (I know, typical), a pen + notebook (for when I want to take notes… old-school style), and matte lipstick.
TWF: When you were a kid what’d you want to be when you grew up?
LD: President of the United States. I’m not done growing up though.
TWF: Since you’re still growing up, what do you want to be now?
LD: A writer - focused on tech, media, cultural vehicles, revolutionary catalysts… and President of the United States.
TWF: What do you love?
LD: Spectacle. I love anything that forces people to gather around it and ask questions. Working in fashion tech allows me to do that on a day-to-day basis. It’s perfection.
TWF: What are your go-to blogs for fashion & tech news info?
LD: Fashionista, Mashable, TechCrunch, & BusinessInsider.
TWF: Who inspires you?
LD: My mom. I think we inspire each other. She’s always worked *super* hard to make sure we grew up in a home that we felt safe in and that we had the things we needed… even if some of those things were more wants than needs. My happiness and frustrations begin and end with her. Wait, is that bad? Scratch that last part.
TWF: Food. Do you have a favorite kind?
LD: Favorite kind: Latin-American, Spanish, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Brazilian… I love scouring Spanish Harlem, the Lower East Side and Washington Heights for dive spots where I can kick back, have a good drink, and feed till my heart’s content. Carb-counting goes out the window on those nights!
TWF: What do you want readers to know about you?
LD: As much as I love fashion, I love politics. There is no shortage of spectacle there either.
TWF: What are your goals with Third Wave Fashion?
LD: The short of it: I want to grow with the company.
The long of it: I want to continue to help shape the editorial/digital content persona of the company and I want to immerse myself in the business acumen set by our founder, Liza.
TWF: What do you love most about working with Third Wave Fashion?
LD: Oh man, Third Wave Fashion is really special. The women I work with and the environment we’ve created is nurturing and creative. I can’t imagine working anywhere else. Sorry, every other business in the world.
TWF: Do you love living + working in the tech scene in New York City?
LD: YEAH! I grew up here. NYC courses through my veins and I’m loving that startups are choosing to grow their identities here. The personality of this metropolis certainly contributes to companies’ appeal and vigor.
