I have only one suggestion:

Did you use French when you emailed them? If not, maybe try try again that way. I'm assuming that it's probably a prime requirement that you be fluent in French in order to work there. So, if the email was in English, they may have opted to ignore your request for information.

Their language is a source of pride to the French people ... and you will be in Paris, probably working with mostly French speaking employees, so I think this will be important.

Thanks for the reply BetteT. I did email them in English, I did contemplate French but my French is very basic (I am learning atm) and I didn't want to say the wrong thing. Perhaps I will attempt it again in French.

Worth a try .... at least it can't hurt.

PM me if you need any help with your French next time

And as BetteT said, it can't hurt. Trying is always worth it one way or another.

Hi everyone, just wanted to post an update and say that I didn't receive a reply to either attempt at contacting them about internships. My next thought was to try to find someone currently employed by Margiela (perhaps via Linkedin or whatever it's called) and ask them.
