Fashion School Relevance
Should I attend a Fashion School?  We are not certain the absolute answer to that question.  Below are a few possibilities.  Which do you think is most correct?
  • Yes, it is critical for working in the fashion industry.
  • No, it is not needed for a career in fashion.
  • It is certainly helpful but not required.
Before working in the fashion industry, we recommend that you receive an education from a qualified school that specializes in apparel industry relevant courses. Although we do not feel that it is an absolute requirement, we do believe that taking classes in fashion merchandising, manufacturing, fabrics, and other key elements is important. If you do not have the time or money to gain a full degree, taking a few classes may be a good idea.

Here are a few fashion schools you may wish to review:

Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT)

Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM)

The above two schools are in the United States, but their are many excellent international fashion schools to consider. You can review the best fashion schools article to review a few of the options available.

Again, we do suggest you attend a fashion school prior to starting your fashion career. If time or money does not make this possible, you are welcome to jump right into the business. You will learn as you go.

If you want to be successful in finding a job, it is important to narrow down the jobs that you would find to be of interest. You certainly do not want to apply for a position working in a clothing warehouse if you do not want to be inside most of the day. If you prefer to always be on the go, you may want to be a sales person or a national sales manager for a fashion brand. Make sure to pick a path that fits into what you would enjoy.

Also, you can visit large employment sites such as Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, Indeed.com and others. They may have job description sections that you would find to be helpful.

Fashion Jobs

Now that we know it is important to receive an education and pick a career path before jumping into the industry, we can move along to more ideas about where to look for available fashion jobs.
One way is to think of a fashion company that you enjoy. It may be a good idea to visit their website and review their available jobs section. If you go to websites such as Nike, Coach, Lord & Taylor, Under Armour, etc., they are sure to have a career opportunities section.
If you prefer to search multiple companies at one time (which would be a good choice), you can try search engines such as the Fashion Job Search website to look for fashion jobs from multiple companies at one time.

Job Hunting Tips
  • Develop a strong resume with a clear message.
  • Dress appropriately for interviews.
  • Use a firm handshake and look people in the eye.
  • After an interview send a thank you message.
  • If you do not receive a call back, follow up with the interviewer anyway.
If you want a job badly, do NOT give up.

Be polite, motivated, and persistent.

If you are not good at creating your own resume, seek help from a resume service.

Practice the interview process with friends or family.

Work in the Fashion Industry

If you are looking for a resource that provides access to employment agencies specializing in the apparel and textile industry we suggest you research opportunities from the fashion jobs section here on the Apparel Search fashion directory.
