Have experience with or interest in learning wordpress
Come to us with an interest in the role of small, local businesses and independent designers to the larger San Francisco fashion community

The chance to work with a local fashion writer/editor who will help you improve and hone your writing, editing and media skills
A great deal of freedom to be creative
Media access to designers’ studios, local fashion and shopping events, shows, sample sales, etc.
The chance to network with key players in the San Francisco fashion industry

Past interns have gone on to internships at publications such as 7×7, Refinery29, Footwear News, Marie Claire and have had their work featured in media outlets such as 7×7.com and the San Francisco Chronicle.
The ideal intern will be able to attend fashion events and conduct interviews on an ongoing basis and turn them into interesting, well-written, insightful features for SF Indie Fashion. Journalism and writing instruction will be offered to intern during the course of the internship, but basic writing and journalism skills – not to mention decent grammar – are absolutely required.
Note: We may also be looking specifically for a video, photography or graphic design intern. If that’s your skill set, please feel free to be in touch.
