With the weather so good right now, it's hard to believe that fall (and Fashion Month) is just around the corner, but so it is -- and we're looking for a new intern to join us at our New York office two or more days a week.

Interning here at Fashionista is an amazing and rewarding opportunity. In fact, more than half of our seven-person team started off in our internship program. And don't expect to be fetching coffee: Our interns are responsible for producing others' stories and pitching and writing their own, so we expect them to be well-versed on brands, designers, industry business leaders, models, editors and photographers. You should be fashion news-obsessed, a regular peruser of the blogosphere and fashion sites, and have a knack for finding under-the-radar news and coming up with interesting story ideas. You should be able to recite Choupette Lagerfeld's dietary demands at a moment's notice. Well, OK, maybe not that. But you get the picture.

Of course, excellent writing skills in a fast-paced environment (and a fresh voice) are an absolute must, along with proficiency in Photoshop -- and experience with an online CMS like WordPress is a major plus. We're seeking out seriously talented peeps -- whether you're still in school or already have a degree. The internship pays $10 an hour.

So, want to be the newest addition to our lovely and amazing team? Just send your resumé, cover letter (tips here!) and two writing samples to ask@fashionista.com with the subject line FASHIONISTA INTERNSHIP. You need to be based in NYC, have at least two free days a week and be able to start in early September. Can't wait to hear from you!
