4. For any of you out there who are like me, you’ve dreamed of the day you’d submit your application to the Condé Nast internship program. Unfortunately, this past week, the company announced its decision to discontinue the program following lawsuits from former interns. Whether or not the suits were the driving reason to get rid of the internships is still up for speculation, but it seems like a pretty good guess.

5. Most high fashion models get their start between the ages of 13 and 16. With their high pressure lifestyles and busy schedules, it can sometimes be easy to forget that these women working the catwalks are actually just kids. A bill was passed this week to give underage models the same legal protections as other child performers. [Sara Ziff’s Underage-Model Bill Gets Signed Into Law; The Cut]

6. Madewell’s new designer Somsack Sikhounmuong replaced former designer Kin Ying Lee earlier this year and he plans to take the brand back to its successful beginnings. Recently, Madewell’s pieces were straying from their well-crafted basics to trendier pieces. Sikhounmuong wants to go back to those “lived-in, go-to” pieces that made the brand a hit with customers at its launch in 2007. [Madewell’s Makeover: The New Designer’s Vision; The Cut]
