Calling all budding Fashion Marketeers! Do you have a real passion for fashion? Are you a brand junkie, and know everything from quirky lifestyle labels to the top designers houses? Do you get excited about fashion media, where VOGUE and ID Magazine are more like your lifestyle guides than quick reads? OK- then you sound very much like me. Which means you possibly are very eager for a successful career in the very fast-paced and demanding fashion industry!
Getting ahead in the fashion industry isn’t easy – it’s hard work, competitive and cut throat. However, if you live and breathe fashion, then you will find you ‘belong’ in this game! I haven’t got where I am today through chance and luck, it has been years of hard work (and maybe a tiny bit of luck…). I studied a Fashion Promotion and Journalism degree, and worked for free alongside my degree as well as paid part time jobs. Then there is starting at the bottom when you finally get into a retail Head Office- I obviously did this and then would go home and write fashion articles for magazines for free! All for the CV I guess. However, I now have a very good job in PR & Marketing for a fashion retailer, along with a successful freelance career and blog, and love going to work everyday!
Sound like something YOU want to do? Well, perhaps the BBC have the answer for you!
