Fashion week internships wanted

The most anticipated MTC Windhoek Fashion Week (WFW) internship programme, which has in the past hosted students from South Africa and Namibia, is back.

The MTC WFW has in the past accommodated interns from Wits University, the University of Johannesburg, the College of the Arts, and other institutions in the country.

The paid programme runs over two weeks and gives interns the opportunity to work in different departments at the MTC WFW.

“We are happy to announce that intake for 2022 is open, and students or individuals who have a passion for the fashion industry are encouraged to apply via www.whkfashionweek.com.

“This programme has upskilled and developed students to understand the different roles in the fashion industry, and that there are other possible careers within the industry.

“We have had interns who have taken up permanent roles at the MTC Windhoek Fashion Week, while some have worked on different productions and with designers.

“Some of the interns have started their own fashion brands, and have showcased at the MTC Windhoek Fashion Week,” says Alvaro Mukoroli, an organiser of the event.

MTC WFW last year had over 600 interns who worked in different departments, including marketing and public relations, production, backstage, hospitality, logistics, entertainment, decor, and the VIP lounge.

Students or interested individuals do not need qualifications to apply for the internship.

Applications close on 15 August.

MTC WFW plays a pivotal role in the fashion industry by creating a platform for designers to showcase and market their brands.

This year MTC WFW is celebrating seven years of Namibian fashion, with the theme ‘Sustainably Namibian’.

“It’s not only about fashion, but also about creating skills development and imparting knowledge in the fashion industry through an internship programme,” he says.

This year’s MTC WFW is slated for 1 to 5 November at Maerua Mall’s P3 parking area.
