Luxury Fashion & Style Contributor

Job Open Date: 08/25/14

Job Close Date: 10/01/14

Status: Open

Gritstyle is seeking a Luxury Fashion & Style Contributor to join the team.  This is a tremendous opportunity to be a fundamental part of  a growing, dynamic, content-driven media site which delivers the best in beauty and style every day.

The Luxury Fashion &  Style Contributor works directly with the Executive Editor to write/edit articles and research brands/trends. Not just any brands…luxury brands. Is Prada your weakness? Have a soft spot for Chanel, Cartier, and Celine? Do you breathe and eat fashion week? Are you considered the ultimate taste-maker among your family and friends? Do you verse yourself in the latest Hermes bags (whether you can afford them or not)? If you gravitate to luxury fashion and rich textiles, if decadence is your middle name…then you’re our girl. Finally! That expensive taste pays off.

From the latest news in fashion to trend-spotting, you’ll be our eyes and ears when it comes to the best (of the absolute best) in style. Your work will publish under your name (and photo) as our Luxury Contributor and you’ll play a crucial role in engaging our international audience. *This is a remotepay-per-article position.  Full details will be discussed with final candidates.

You must:

  • Have completed at least one year of college.
  • Work with a strong sense of urgency.
  • Absorb constructive (but never, ever hurtful) criticism and feedback.
  • Be passionate about fashion, fashion week, high-quality and luxury goods.
  • Have excellent writing skills and your own distinct, developed “voice”.
  • Be able to work independently and under strict deadlines.
  • Have an acute attention to even the smallest of details.
  • Be creative, organized and a major communicator.
  • Be entertaining and upbeat…and use proper grammar.

Your responsibilities:

  • Pitch ideas and provide well-rounded insight and commentary on luxury fashion trends, textiles, collections, and designers.
  • Research brands and history. Facts are key! Portions of your content will be sourced from experts.
  • Write articles of at least 250 words 2-3 times monthly.
  • Create thoughtful and engaging content without bias.

What we need from you:

  • Between 2-5 writing samples, all of which must deal with fashion and style. You do not have to be a published writer. You just have to love the luxe life. If you don’t have clips available we would love for you to consider writing something new.
  • Your resume.
  • Links to your website (if any), blog and social media accounts.
  • summary of your work (including volunteerism, writing, and internships) in the fashion industry, if any.
  • Your best fashion investment to date (regardless of actual cost), what made you buy it, and why it’s such an awesome piece.
  • Finally, tell us your top ten luxury fashion must-haves. No-holds-barred, the sky is the limit, no item is too expensive…what’s on your wish list?

Apply
