Vogue Italia and Kering team up for the second year to offer internships to young talents in the fashion industry
Following the great success of 2013 Vogue Talents project, Vogue Italia and Kering have renewed their partnership to offer internship opportunities within Kering luxury brands in Italy and Switzerland - Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Brioni, Sergio Rossi, Dodo, Girard-Perregaux, JeanRichard, Pomellato - and Kering corporate headquarters.
The internships will be offered to the most imaginative and high-potential young talents in the following areas: marketing, information systems, public relations, communications and merchandising.
The list of internship positions will be posted on www.vogue.it on 18 September. Each opportunity will include a description of the internship project, activities and requirements. Candidates will have until 15 November to submit their application (in English) together with a resume and a cover letter.
A joint team including representatives of Kering and related brands will then form a short-list and interview candidates to select the most suitable and promising profiles.
The selected candidates will join some of the luxury industry’s most celebrated brands for an internship starting from November 2014 to April 2015.
Last year internships proved to be very successful and the profiles of the best performing interns are currently being considered for long-term positions within our brands.
Vogue Italy and Kering will celebrate the launch of ‘Empower Talents 2’ programme at a private cocktail hosted by Franca Sozzani, Vogue Italia editor-in-chief, and Francois-Henri Pinault, Kering Chairman and CEO, at Palazzo Morando, Milan, on 17th September, 2014.
Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia Franca Sozzani stated: "For the second consecutive year, Vogue Italia and Kering have created an innovative and feasible model that will surely make it possible for many young people to win their challenge with what is in store for them with commitment and creativity. A project that is renewed and advances in order to facilitate the development of a new generation of talents."
François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of Kering, added: “I am very pleased to continue with the project ‘Empower Talents 2’ in collaboration with Vogue Italia and precious dedication of Franca Sozzani. Identifying talent and empowering creativity are both part of Kering’s vision and core missions. Our partnership with Vogue Italia is key to find and nurture these young promising talents, notably by giving them the opportunity to grow through valuable internships with our brands.”
