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. : )

Zac Posen for Target 24 Hour Shopping Party

Zac Posen for Target: 24 Hour Shopping Party Sneak Peak

Thursday was one of those NYC days that was just jam packed with events and parties. One of the things I was most looking forward to was the press preview of the Zac Posen for Target Shopping Party! When I first heard about the event, I was ecstatic– It meant I didn’t have to stay up until 3am next weekend waiting to place an order! Really though, it’s always amazing to see Target’s designer collaborations in person, a feat which isn’t always easy in New York City. If you have an opportunity in the next 24 hours to do the same, TAKE IT.

Zac Posen for Target: 24 Hour Shopping Party 1

Zac Posen for Target: 24 Hour Shopping Party 2

I was really impressed with the Zac Posen line. You might hear me gush over Target a lot on this blog (IMO they really can do no wrong), but seriously this collection blew me away. The quality and selection in this collection was phenomenal. And even better, the sizing seemed to run more “normal” than some of the collections of the past. Only the pink animal print dress seemed to run small, from what I saw.

My favorite dress in the collection!

The Like performed while buyers snatched up their favorite pieces.

The pieces that impressed me most:

The Brocade Floral Dress*
The Red Leather & Suede Jacket
The Navy and Black Snap Dress*
Ruffled Red Prom Dress

* The 2 dresses I bought.

This dress is amazing:

I went right when the event started, at 7. But I only had a short time before I had to head to a second event, so I missed Zac, Claire Danes, and Selma Blair. Everything looked amazing though, and the way it was presented was beautiful. I hear it most sizes quickly sold out during the preview! It looked like a lot of stock was still available, hidden in a back room for the public opening. But if you want to shop early, I suggest going asap!

I shot a quick video of some of the mannequins wearing the collection, and The Like doing their sound check:

When I left at 8pm, there were already two girls in line:

Hope you two got everything you wanted!

Both of the dresses I got are gorgeous, but this is my favorite Target dress ever:

Zac Posen for Target: My Picks

Finally, the rest of the images from the Zac Posen for Target lookbook have been released! I posted four images from this month’s Teen Vogue a few weeks back. And now, you can see them all! There are tons of images of the line— here are my favorite pieces from the collection:

Love this leather jacket!

I’d probably look silly in this, but it is beautiful:

The collection is also featured in the April issues of ELLE, VOGUE, and People Style Watch.

It’s a big departure from the red carpet looks of his line for Austrailan Target, but I think it will be a hit!

Zac Posen for Target will be available on April 25th in stores, and online at Target.com.

Zac Posen for Target in Teen Vogue

Newly released photos of Zac Posen for Target are featured in the April issue of Teen Vogue. Back in January, I posted the lookbook, but was asked by Target to remove it. But now two of the original images, and two new images shot just for Teen Vogue have been released!

This Dress is ADORABLE!

Prices might be a bit higher for this collection, but most of the dresser are convertible!

“We made the ruffles detachable, like a Judy Garland apron,” says the designer of a fire-engine red strapless number with frilled skirt from his new Target collection. “You can wear it as a skirt over the dress; undo it and drape it over your shoulders à la Cristóbal Balenciaga; or if you don’t want any frou, take it off and you have a sexy date dress.”
