Internships

Since our launch in 2010, the Dareen Hakim Collection has quickly grown and expanded its presence across the globe. Currently sold all over the U.S. and more that 50 countries worldwide, the collection has also been celebrated and covered by various press outlets from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, L’Officiel and WWD to Forbes, and has been worn by celebrities like Fergie and Eva Longoria.

Our internship program allows students and others interested in the fashion industry the opportunity to be a part of the behind-the-scenes operations of an emerging brand. Whether you’re interested in learning and being part of the production and development process or strategizing and implementing new marketing initiatives to help the brand expand its global reach, there is something for you at DHC. As a small company, one facet of the internship program that we pride ourselves on is the chance to give our interns a very well-rounded experience across the functions of a fashion business.

We are constantly seeking highly energetic, self-driven and organized candidates who are eager to get first-hand experience in building a brand and business in fashion. Candidates should have strong passion and must be willing to work in a fast-paced, flexible environment. Strong initiative and the ability to multi-task, as well as being able to bring unique ideas to our platforms will be highly valued. The internships are very hands-on and offer amazing exposure.
