Fashion schools, here’s some advice.

The fashion industry can be elitist and difficult to decipher. It is very difficult to emerge and often you are forced to go from countless unpaid internships.

Moreover, students from the main fashion schools face tough competition when they try to enter the sector. So how can students move forward?

Let’s start from a fact: fashion schools cannot teach originality. According to the greatest experts, to find new ideas, you have to go beyond textbooks, you have to participate in exhibitions, attend people who produce products and have creative experiences not only online, but in the field.

Let’s see some advice together:

Doing a year of internship

A year of internship in the sector can be a useful path to success in the field of fashion. It is here that students can establish contacts and gain work experience and where employers can identify the skills they are looking for in students.

Stay in touch with your classmates.

The university experience is essential to finding a job in fashion. Building these relationships is important because they will be contacts and colleagues in the future.

Thinking about “local networks”

Students should try to create their own local networks rather than immediately point to their dream job. Participating in events with people close by, developing creativity, creating clothes for friends and talking to people in their favourite shop is important to find out what they are selling and why.

Meet professionals in person

Designers, publishers, stylists and creative directors often give speeches at universities. It’s worth getting up and making yourself known. Meeting people face to face is always better.

Seeking alternative paths

Apprenticeship is another way to enter the sector. They tend to be practical, in skills such as apparel technology and pattern cutting – areas where there are more jobs than in classic design.
