Got a message from my good friend Nona who has started her own line of fashion for woman cyclists. She is looking for an intern so I thought I’d help out and post this request:
Nona Varnado, NYC’s sustainable women’s bike fashion label is seeking an intern.
About Us: Fall/Winter 2010/2011 will be the third seasonal collection and most ambitious to date using cutting edge performance and natural fabrics, couture level garment design while establishing a stronger brand online, through events such as Interbike and select sponsorships and a strong marketing program. It’s a small DIY mentality focused on making amazing things in an ethical manner. We’re always super busy, but being in NYC means there’s always friends, drinks and shows to keep it fun + inspired.
About you: we are looking for an unpaid intern for a 2-3 month commitment of 10-25 hours per week. A longer term is possible through fashion week in February 2011 depending on fit. It is expected that an intern will have some goals (learning new skills, gaining experience, resume building or college credit) and a specific schedule will be created to make sure you’re benefiting from the experience.
Skill range: we’re looking for some one who is very interested or skilled in one or two of the following areas: production support (assistant), sales/marketing, web design.
If you know anyone in the NYC area who’d be interested in helping a small label produce a new collection, handle media and promotions and generally be a fun + positive person to hang out with, please let us know!
If interested, please send an email to Nona: projecta (AT) nonavarnado.com
