Most of our childhood has gone by watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S and, for me, Rachel has been an absolute favourite. Doesn’t she have the coolest jobs out of all the six people? During her job, she just kept bumping into all the whos and whos of the fashion industry. Especially, while working at the Ralph Lauren office, there have been numerous instances where she has spotted Lauren himself.
Remember her stint at Bloomingdales where she worked as a buyer and personal shopper? I mean- HOW COOL IS THAT, really!
Isn’t this how we all expect our life to be in the fashion industry? I mean who wouldn’t like a life like that?
