Fashion by Rachel Ariel Photography

With Fashion Week kicking-off this week, all eyes are on NYC. For creative women looking for exciting careers that showcase their flair & style, the city that never sleeps unquestionably has a lot to offer.

If you’re a woman living in (or thinking of moving to!) New York, here are 4 of the hottest companies to work for today.

Gilt Group

Often referred to as the “Amazon of Luxury”, this NYC online fashion and lifestyle retailer has changed the way that people shop. Relying on a membership-only flash sale business model, its massive userbase make a mad dash to their computers everyday at noon to browse time-sensitive deals on stylish luxury products, which include popular fashion brands as Prada, Botkier and Derek Lam. Their mission statement is clear:

“Create the most exciting, curated shopping experience that helps our members express their style in life.”

Gilt Group has some uniquely named roles (buyers are called “curators”), whose qualifications include “a passion for fine food, wines, arts, culture and city life.” This unique fashion retailer creates an exceptionally inspiring working environment for the right candidate.

Moda Operandi

Moda Operandi brings the once-exclusive couture trunkshow to the masses. This premier fashion website redefines shopping in style, offering clients “looks straight from the unedited runway collections of the world’s top designers–months before they are available anywhere else.”

Founded by exceptionally talented & accomplished Áslaug Magnúsdóttir  (Icelandic superstar whos pedigree includes HBS, McKinsey, and a law degree). The company’s organization chart reads like a fashion magazine: where will you fit in? Roles include Trunk Show Producer, Editorial Assistant and Photographer, among others.  (http://modaoperandi.com/careers)

AHAlife

AHAlife describes itself as the discovery shopping destination for curated lifestyle products that span design, technology, fashion, media, food, beauty and travel. Each product is carefully selected by company curators, established names and experts in each of its selling categories. Its website features a carefully editorialized “stories” page, which sets it apart from your usual, run-of-the-mill e-commerce site.

Innovative, fashion forward and full of style, AHAlife currently has open positions in engineering, design and buying. (http://www.ahalife.com/jobs/)

Conde Nast

Conde Nast is a world-renowned publisher with magazines that span a wide scope of topics—including food, travel, fashion and style—and a wide range of brands—including GQ, Vogue, Conde Nast Traveller, Style.com and Vanity Fair.

It’s one of the oldest, too. But if you think that its traditional or boring, think again. People who work for Conde will tell you that its work environment is dynamic, inspiring and fast-paced; all made possible by the tremendous level of talent. And did we mention that about one-third of its employees are women?

Conde Nast is currently looking to fill positions in advertising, editorial and corporate. (http://www.condenast.com/careers/career-opportunities)
