The Nick Talent Style team works with each talent to create styles that are true to them and they keep the talent aspirational yet relatable to the audience. The intern will assist stylists with shopping, returning, fittings, and finance - on set, in the office, and/or on the orange carpet. Interns should have a good sense of style and must be detail-oriented.
