I would suggest the first question you should ask yourself is have you done any sort of magzine/newspaper work before, besides writing for your school/uni magazine? Because if not, your chances for actually getting a fashion magazine internship straight off is slim. That's not to say you shouldn't try anyway, but maybe it's better to intern in a local newspaper or a smaller magazine first. Big fashion mags nearly always ask for previous experience, so the more experience you've got, the better, even if it's for a magazine that's totally unrelated to fashion.
Also, the younger, teenage fashion magazines are generally the best ones to start with because they're usually more flexible on lack of experience.
Oh yeah, and the best way to send in a query for an internship for all of the fashion magazines is to send an e-mail/letter to the right department with both a convincing cover letter stting why you want to work there, why you'd be good for it etc, and also a CV listing all the usual stuff on it like qualifications etc.
There is one more thread about internships ... a really big one ... where they discuss how they work and lot's of other things about being an intern. If you have further questions beyond wanting to know where to apply, you should go here: All About Internships and Work Experience Placements
Fashion Designers Agencies. Anybody knows about it?
Hello, my name is Omar and I'm 22 years old.
I graduated last year at IED in Milan and now I'm doing an intership in London where I'm living.
My contract will finish in September and after this, I'm really looking for a joob.
From friends and people I know I've heard there are lots of agencies where you can apply sending your CV and portfolio and they gonna help you through a job search.
I really don't know any and if I do some research - for example on google - I really don't know how much trusty could it be.
Does any of you who work in the fashion industry (or even not) know good ones? I'm absolutely free to move everywhere, could be Paris, Stockholm, New York or whatever.
We don't have a section to post "available for work" ads here, but there are two threads pinned at the top of this forum for opportunites that members find, both paid and unpaid jobs, and they post them for the other members. You might want to keep an eye on those.
I am moving this the the "Help me Find Info re: Employment/Work/Jobs/Internships In The Fashion Industry " thread, which is alread set up for members seeking specific advice for themselves.
Since I'm not a designer nor have I worked with one, I really can't give much advice ... hopefully someone else has some ideas if they have been trought this already.
I did notice that you are looking for "entry level" jobs and this is the main thing that came to my mind ... that you have to start low and work your way up. (Some recent grads expect to find a job near the top, but that is not realistic.) And it's extremely competitive, so don't be too fussy. As you gain experience to put on your CV, you will be able to have a wider choice of opportunities.
If you are not in London ... and the jobs are ... maybe you must make that move, even if you have to work at some other type of job, while you job hunt. I know that they will notice where you reside and if it's not close, that might be taking you out of consideration, before they even ask to interview you.
Just food for thought ... not really much help, I know.
Other things to explore: What othe skills do you have that might get you in the door? Pattern making or cutting, perhaps? What did you do as an intern? Can what you learned there be helpful to a designer?
