Two of ’em, actually, for the right gal or guy who’d like to join the crew of OTDIF style slaves. Candidates must be based in the Seattle area, have a strong—if not all-consuming—interest in style or fashion, a familiarity with the world of online shopping and a good knowledge of current collections. She or he must possess endless curiosity, extremely strong research and writing skills, a strong concept of (and belief in) the basic rules of journalism, compulsive attention to detail, an outstanding attitude and work ethic and ambitions to launch a career in some pocket of the fashion world. Extra points go to those who know Zandra Rhodes from Betsey Johnson, Stephen Burrows from Halston and Christian Dior from Pierre Balmain. Daily duties will vary, from researching Stories Behind the Styles to interviewing sources in the industry to gathering looks from the past and present; it is highly unlikely that you will ever make a pot of coffee or pick up our dry cleaning.
This is a editorial internship for people interested becoming a writer or editor. You do not need to be enrolled in college to apply for this internship, nor do you need to have majored in journalism, English, creative writing, etc. Interns at On This Day In Fashion generally work four to five days over a 20-hour workweek during a continuous six-month period: We do not offer short-term internships over holiday breaks. Internships are unpaid but every intern receives personalized mentoring and tutoring and loads of published clips. Academic credit—if applicable—is available.
Interested candidates must submit a resume, references and writing samples and answer the following questions:
• What is the most compelling fashion story of the year and why?
• What is your favorite fashion film (either one about or inspired by fashion) and why?
• Which fashion designer (current or from the past) the most under-rated and why?
