Big City Little Dress
1105 1st Avenue
New York, NY
DescriptionBig City Little Dress (formerly SocialiteStyle.com) was relaunched in April 2014, is based out of Manhattan, and is currently expanding to feature editorial style shoots and interviews that will become the focus of the site. These will be supplemented by other content including fashion news, beauty, events, and runway show coverage.
Between photo shoots, fashion shows, parties and events, showroom visits, marketing, social media, and corresponding with designers and brands (not to mention creating new content), I'm in need of a helping hand that can assist! This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to network with fashion industry professionals and learn about the tasks involved in working with a fashion publication. Perks will include attending shows at MBFW, parties and events, opportunities to contribute to the site to increase your online presence and influence, and at times free products (clothing, accessories, jewelry, cosmetics). You'll receive training in areas like writing pitches, creating content, SEO best practices, and photo shoot production.
