Yohji Yamamoto's in-house press office needs Fall interns. You need to: - Love fashion - not shopping, but fashion - and be really excited to see / try on / play with / send and receive Yohji's designs. - Be RELIABLE AND RESPONSIBLE [caps by Yohji's people]! Interns play a vital role in any show room which means if you say you'll be there Monday and Wednesday you need to be there Monday and Wednesday. And probably Tuesday, too. - Be available 2-3 days a week starting now. - E-mail your resume and brief cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org Also, the internship offers a $20 per diem, which means you can buy your monthly metrocard in a mere four days. Or you can just indulge in fancy lunches.
