Vancouver Fashion Week – Call for Volunteers

Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) is looking for volunteers for the Fall/Winter 2009 season of shows! If you are interested, email Shallom Johnson (VFW coordinator) at shallom@vanfashionweek.com with a cover letter and resume.

VFW is currently accepting applications for the following positions/roles:

  • Show coordinators
  • Stylists
  • Designer liaisons (clothing/shoes/accessories/jewelry)
  • Buyer liaisons
  • Media liaisons
  • Sponsor liaisons
  • PR & marketing
  • Makeup and hair coordinators
  • Seating/VIP coordinators
  • Backstage and front of house staff.

What VFW needs from you: effective communication skills, ability to multitask, prioritize tasks, delegate when necessary, work independently and with a team, accomplish many things under tight deadlines and have professional writing skills.

Experience in the fashion industry is not completely necessary but is a huge plus – it’s a lot easier to organize something of this magnitude when we have a team of people on board who understand how the industry works and what is required of them in that respect.

Show dates are still TBC but will be one week in March 2009. VFW needs people who can get on board from January onwards, and who are willing to make a firm commitment and deliver on their promises.
