One of the best and easiest ways to break into the fashion industry is to pitch in during fashion week. Tons of companies–from top PR agencies, to designers, to modeling agencies–need lots of extra hands this time of year. They need people willing to put their heads down and work their asses off (not to party, OK?). Oftentimes, if you prove yourself to be an asset during the chaos of fashion week, that two-week internship becomes a semester-long internship–or better still, a full-time job. We know plenty of folks who got their start helping out during fashion week–so trust us: If you’re looking to get a foot in the door in the crazy world of fashion, this is an excellent way to do it.
And we wanna help you out.
