Sep '13
As part of the Vogue Talents project, Vogue Italia and Kering have teamed up to help start off talented young people who are seeking a career in the luxury industry. Vogue Italia will publish the internship offers and help select candidates for internships within eight of the Kering luxury brands: Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Brioni, Sergio Rossi, Boucheron, Girard-Perregaux, Jeanrichard and Pomellato. 
 
A total of 23 internships will be offered, which will be in the following areas: the style and creative department, product development, marketing/communications, PR, visual merchandising, merchandising and digital. They will be based in Italy, France or Switzerland and will be offered paid internship contracts as per local standards. 
 
The list of internship positions will be posted on the Vogue website on 20 September. This will include a description of each internship project and the selection criteria. Candidates, who can be of any nationality, will have until 30 November to submit their project together with their resume as well as a 30 second video presentation. 
 
A joint team from Kering and related brands will then form a short-list and interview candidates in order to choose the most suitable profiles. The names of the selected candidates will then be revealed, and they will join some of the luxury industry’s most celebrated brands for an internship starting January 2014. 
 
Vogue Italy and Kering will celebrate the launch of this first ‘Empower Talents’ programme at a private event hosted by Franca Sozzani, Vogue Italia editor-in-chief, and Francois-Henri Pinault, Kering chairman and CEO, at Palazzo Morando, Milan, on 20 September, 2013. 
 
An editorial project created in September 2009, Vogue Talents is a vital link between fashion companies and talented young people. It is published as a supplement to Vogue Italia once a year in the September issue. Vogue Talents promotes up-and-coming creativity through supporting initiatives in search of new talent: events, contests and workshops focused on youth. 
 
Franca Sozzani, Vogue Italia editor in chief declared: “Supporting a new generation of young talents is crucial for the future of the entire fashion system. Vogue Italia has been working on this for many years, through creating awards, establishing a page dedicated to Talents on vogue.it, and publishing the annual Vogue Talents supplement. Kering and its brands are devoted to working with young talents and helping them with internships is just one example. I strongly believe that together we can make the difference for many new talents.” 
 
François-Henri Pinault, chairman and CEO of Kering, commented: “I am delighted to launch this partnership with Vogue Italia thanks toFranca Sozzani’s commitment. Attracting, retaining and developing talent is a priority for Kering and its brands. Nurturing talent is part and parcel of Kering’s philosophy of Empowering Imagination.“
