Approximately 60% of our staff all started off from our internship program. It is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door and grow with us! If you have been watching Aimee Song's youtube channel where she interviews big names in the fashion industry, they all say intern, intern, intern!!
This internship position is a key role in facilitating all aspects of PR. We have three departments, the PR showroom/celebrity team, media team, and rental showroom.
In regards to assisting the showrooms, this will include helping garner placements on celebrities and in editorial sections of magazines that use freelance stylists, doing pick ups/drop off's with merchandise, bagging up items, assisting stylists while in the showroom, merchandising and maintaining the aesthetics of the showrooms, and pitching up and coming and established designers to be represented by CLD PR. The media side works on placing clients in magazine and online fashion/trend stories, editorials for major magazines where the magazines have their own staff of stylists (Vogue, Elle, etc.), blogger outreach and gifting, social media management, and ensuring any placements the celebrity team garnered are credited with designer information and secure placements of those shots in weekly/monthly magazines or online mentions, event planning/production.
