Fashion internship vacancy

From 2024, the fashion internship and work experience opportunities offered by Jed Phoenix of London have been consolidated into a mentorship programme. The mentoring can be carried out via Zoom or in person at the studio in South London (near public transport links). Please read the following before contacting us:

    • About the business: I run a niche business which started in 1999 with funding from the Prince’s Trust. In 2011 I became a Prince’s Trust Mentor, helping other young entrepreneurs to start their own businesses. I have had around 20 interns over the years and get a sense of satisfaction seeing how they develop and grow. My clientele are from the fetish, alternative, goth and neurodivergent scenes. 
    • Who I offer mentoring to: Due to the nature of the target market, anyone working with the business in any capacity needs to be at least 18 years old. I will be prioritising mentoring for people who are LGBTQ+, neurodivergent, kinksters, and those who identify with an alternative lifestyle. There will be a screening process to make sure we are a good fit.
  • What I offer:
    • The mentorship comprises:
      • 1-2-1 mentoring - Duration and frequency to be negotiated. 
      • Help with how to get a product to market in the alternative/fetish environment.
      • Timeline of a product
        • Concept - design - manufacture - marketing - sales environment
      • Building confidence 
      • Introduction to the scene:
        • Pop up shops 
        • Fetish/alt markets 
        • Festivals

    If you would like more details about this unpaid and voluntary opportunity, please contact Jed.

    What Previous fashion interns say about their internship

    Andrea came over from Mexico in 2014 and did a 3 month internship. In 2018, Jed had a Skype conversation with Andrea, about her experience, and what she's doing now. (Please forgive the audio quality on the video recording - we were bouncing off international satellites!)
