Spring 2011 Fashion and Editorial Internships

I’ve been taking it easy and focusing a bit more on my personal life since fracturing my foot late last month. But I’ve managed to find a bunch of awesome spring internship opportunities to share with you. As I always say, for anyone trying to break into the fashion or publishing industries, interning is THE BEST way. Do as many as you can, as early as you can! I got my start in the magazine industry by doing an internship, and got a freelance editing job about a month after it ended.

Don’t forget to follow the application instructions. : )
