Fashion First Seattle Seeking Social Media/Marketing Intern

MBMedia is again working with Fashion First Seattle this year and is looking for 1 Social Media and Marketing Intern to assist with the event for the summer.


The 14th year of the FASHION FIRST runway show brings Seattle together for the most exciting night of high- end fashion in the Northwest. Seattle-area fashion retailers, designers, educators, students, style influencers, fashionistas and philanthropists attend each year to preview the fall trends for the upcoming season in an edited presentation that promotes commerce in the Seattle Area.

Due to the event changing business landscape, while keeping our clients and sponsors in mind, we have made the bold choice to take the attendance of FASHION FIRST from 700 to 350 in attendance. We are about two things 1. Fashion 2. Fundraising with the outcome of commerce .

As Seattle’s longest-running independent fashion show, FASHION FIRST was founded to provide an affordable, but powerful marketing platform with cutting-edge social media for the Seattle-area fashion retailers and designers. The FASHION FIRST core mission: Present an on-trend fashion show to promote and support Seattle retailers and designers while raising money and providing Seattle students with scholarship money for higher education and help children with disabilities thrive in the outdoors.

With a wealth of talented local retailers and designers in Seattle, the Emerald City is on the rise as an influential style scene. FASHION FIRST is the intersection where designers, small business owners, and the fashion-forward consumers meet, creating a network of fashion enthusiasts unlike any other in this thriving city. Come, be a part of the excitement as designers and retailers strut their looks down the runway and raise money for kids who need an opportunity.

The Crescent Moon Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established by Pro Football Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon, dedicated to supporting the educational pursuits of underprivileged children. The Rising Moon Scholarship Program awards scholarships to students that demonstrate a commitment to their community, excel in leadership and who are in need.

We are looking for a self-starting enthusiastic intern who is interested in growing his or her skills in marketing and social media. Interest in fashion, non-profits and events is ideal. Must be able to jump into projects and be resourceful to find solutions to problems. The internship is designed to grow your skills and knowledge, but interns are expected to consider ways to answer questions and find information on their own as well.
