Fashion is a fast-paced and exciting industry for those who love clothes, designs, and trends. This international industry includes careers ranging from modeling to fabric/clothing design, from marketing to retail, from business to manufacturing, from buying to merchandising. Possible occupational titles include: fashion designer, model, photographer, fashion editor, fashion writer, fashion stylist, fashion buyer, retail merchandisers.

Things to Consider

Experience may be more critical than education for certain positions, and internships tend to be unpaid. Fashion schools offer a range of degrees, and the industry itself offers trade shows and seminars. Developing professional contacts is critical, and opportunities can be found in design houses, department stores, boutiques, and fashion publishing.
