Possible occupational titles include: fashion designer, model, photographer, fashion editor, fashion writer, fashion stylist, fashion buyer, retail merchandisers.

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.
