Advance Magazine Publishers Inc. Senior Fashion News Writer, Vogue Runway in New York, New York
The foundation of Vogue's leadership and authority is the brand's unique role as a cultural barometer for a global audience. Vogue places fashion in the context of culture and the world we live in - how we dress, live and socialize; what we eat, listen to and watch; who leads and inspires us. Vogue immerses itself in fashion, always leading readers to what will happen next. Thought-provoking, relevant and always influential, Vogue defines the culture of fashion.
Vogue's senior fashion news writer is a critical and creative thinker who is constantly looking ahead to what's next in the industry. This person will review collections at Fashion Week twice a year, as well as during the pre-collection seasons; pitch and write daily stories for the website; contribute to Vogue's print issues; and collaborate with Vogue's newsletter and social media teams to promote Vogue Runway content.
As the leading online destination for fashion shows, emerging designers, industry news, trends, and fashion features, Vogue Runway's long-held motto is to "see fashion first." The senior fashion news writer should have a deep knowledge of fashion and keen instincts for the next big thing. They should be comfortable scouting and meeting with new designers, building relationships with fashion PRs, and gathering contacts to inform future stories. This person should also be adaptable and highly collaborative, as they will work closely with Vogue Runway's team in New York as well as with the broader Vogue team and contributors around the world.
In addition to being fashion-obsessed, the senior fashion news writer should be an avid reader who is up to date on the latest news in culture, politics, and current events; an interest in sustainability and fashion's environmental and social impact is also encouraged.
