MAGAZINE is a tiny sales and PR agency representing a handful of really talented, NYC-based clothing and jewelry designers. Market season is coming up and we need help in our showroom and at a big tradeshow, in addition to needing constant support with ongoing press duties.
We would love it if you could: • familiarize yourself with all of the designers that we represent; their collections, their inspiration, and their background • research stores big and small all over the world that can help support our designers • know the "media landscape" (??) really well—blogs, magazines, newspapers, the whole gamut. Have a few favorite writers and think of stuff they could write about. • help us stay organized with more spreadsheets than you've ever seen in your life • be very anal about the way things looks • be an amazing, amazing writer • be obsessed with style, dressing, Marie Antoinette, Diane Keaton, etc • be friendly and LOVE TALKING TO PEOPLE! • help us with errands (sorry) and lots of schlepping, steaming, and last-minute problem solving
This position is unpaid, but we will supply you with an unlimited Metrocard for the month of August, September, and October, and whatever school credit/recommendations you may require. Lots of snacks, too. Our showroom is in Chelsea/Flatiron on West 26th Street between 6th and 7th Aves.
Please submit a resume, cover and 1 - 2 writing samples—they can be literally anything at all. We'll read your blog or your thesis paper about "Cheers." We're really excited to, actually.
