Inside Fashion Designer Careers

Things you need to know, but nobody tells you

 

Biggest Surprises


"Don't Overlook Marketing...
What surprised me most about being in the Fashion industry is how much marketing and negotiations is involved in getting work first, before I can put my creative talents at work. I learned that I would need the help of an agent just like in sports." (Fashion Designer; 2013)

Career: 4 years of experience, currently based in New York, male
School: Studied Fashion at Wood Tobe Coburn School in New York; completed Bachelor degree in 2009


"Contentment In The Fashion Industry...
I was surprised to find how long the hours can be at certain fashion design companies. I find a high percentage of my peers are unhappy about their current work situation within the fashion industry, and it probably relates to the long hours, low creative opportunity, and low pay. I am learning that it is very important to find a company that fits your needs." (Fashion Illustrator; 2013)

Career: 3 years of experience, currently based in New York, female
School: Studied Fashion Design at Drexel University in Pennsylvania; completed Bachelor degree in 2010
