    Hi Mirna,

    I'll start by saying that magazines like Vogue and Harper's tend to swing towards college or university graduates or final year students. That said it's not impossible to get an internship at a fashion magazine outside of studying.

    My biggest piece of advice towards this endeavour would be to just keep going for it. My next tip would be to broaden your horizons and try applying for internships at less known publications such as Oyster magazine. Don't just set your sights on the big names. My final tip would be to get a little more personal with your application when asking for an internship. Think about it this way. Publications like Vogue and Harper's get flooded daily with thousands of emails about work experience and internships. Most of the time they go unnoticed to. I would strongly suggest penning a handwritten letter and mailing it. A handwritten letter allows for a little more personal flare into your message that emails can't provide.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind Regards,

    Hello :)
    I have been struggling to get a fashion assistant or market editor internship at a fashion magazine such as Elle, Vogue or Harper's for a really long time now :( I've sent out emails and applied every chance I got, but none of it seems to be working. When I volunteered at mbfw I met a number of people interning at such magazines and I would love to know how they were able to get them? 

    If you're currently interning, or have previously interned, at such magazines I would really love to read any advice or tips on how I can secure myself one too! thanks X
