There are some awesome careers in fashion other than modelling. In fact, there are so many fashion careers that don’t require getting involved in the scary and overwhelming world of modelling which is also limiting due to the looks requirements. If you want to be in the fashion industry but don’t know which career is right for you, this list will help. If you have a few different interests and one of them is fashion, I hope this list of careers in fashion will inspire you.
1. FASHION DESIGNER
Why not create the clothes that the models wear? If you love fashion and love coming up with your own trends, you need to be creating a fashion label. Start small and work your way up to the big leagues! It may seem overwhelming, but everyone has to start somewhere.
2. FASHION EDITOR
Start as a writer and work your way up to be a fashion editor. Whether you’re working for a website or a magazine, you’ve got to start somewhere. If you love fashion and love writing, just start writing about fashion. You’ll be amazed just how much you can have when you’re writing about fashion!
3. FASHION BLOGGER
If you can’t find any websites to write for just yet, be your own boss and start a fashion blog. Who knows where it could go? Maybe one day your blog will take you to new places, like to the runways of fashion week! If you put your heart into it, starting a blog may change your entire world! (How about writing on Allwomenstalk?)
4. FASHION MARKETING
If you love advertising and marketing but you also have a passion for fashion, go into fashion marketing. It’s such a creative field for the person who loves fashion. You’d be surprised by just how much fun it is, even though marketing seems somewhat dry.
5. FASHION MERCHANDISING
Fashion merchandising is great for the person who’s good at identifying trends that are on the cusp of happening. Fashion merchandising means that you work for a store and buy the clothes that will be sold in the store. Doesn’t that sound amazing? It’s great for the person who’s good at curating!
6. PERSONAL STYLIST
If you love putting together outfits, especially for other people, you need to go into styling. It’s a great career for the person who loves giving advice, especially in the fashion world. If you’re the girl who’s always helping your friends pick out outfits, you need to try out this career for you.
7. COSTUME DESIGNER
If you’re someone who loves TV and movies and you also love fashion, you can consider costume design. Wouldn’t you love to pick the fashion choices out for all of your favourite TV characters? It would be a dream come true for a TV addict!
