A fashion writer or lifestyle writer produces copy related to all aspects of fashion and style. In short, fashion writers create blogs, features, listicles, brochures, social media posts and more. Additionally, high-end professional fashion writers or editors attend fashion shows to identify trends. At the same time, they interview powerful players of the high street, including designers, brokers and celebrities.
For the most part, fashion writers are also experts in writing product descriptions, reviewing cosmetic products and successfully managing social media accounts (i.e., Instagram). On top of this, they may be called upon to edit other writers' work or organise a fashion firm's advertising campaign. Generally, working as a fashion writer is exciting and never boring considering how vast the fashion industry is and that trends change each season.
Note: The successful fashion writer candidate will be offered a permanent position within our company.
