Prepare for a Career in Fashion

Social Share

Whether you’re the next Coco Chanel, Ralph Lauren, or Vera Wang, finding your niche in the fashion industry requires a lot of preparation, time, and education. Getting your foot in the door of the fashion industry can be difficult. Getting up to speed with rapidly changing trends and a demanding audience that demands nothing less than the best has become a reality in a competitive world. For creative university graduates who have a passion for the fashion industry and the desire to make a mark in it, a fashion career may be very alluring.

Successful fashion businesses are run by people who are creative and passionate about clothing, however, running a business in this industry requires more than just an exquisite sense of design to be sustainable. Design is an art, but it is also a business that requires designers to learn a variety of business skills to succeed. Additionally, they need to master business skills such as merchandising, sampling, marketing, manufacturing, and retailing. The way fashion blends art and commerce is amazing!

So, are you an aspiring fashion designer or an apparel entrepreneur and are willing to start a business? Start by gaining a thorough understanding of both the art and commerce sides of the business. Consider pursuing a degree or a diploma in fashion design to learn the fundamentals of the field. A well-designed and curated course in fashion will introduce you to the world of fashion. You will gain knowledge about fashion history, textile manipulation, sketching and drawing clothes, fashion events, or managing a fashion house. Some of the career outcomes with a fashion degree include becoming a stylist, merchandiser, designer, illustrator, brand manager, product developer, social media marketer, and journalist.

A report by Ken Research (2018) has provided a very optimistic fashion market outlook of the UAE that highlights the growth potential of the industry in the region which opens a plethora of job opportunities for young graduates and aspirants.

So, if you are interested in the business of fashion, you should start meeting people in the fashion industry as early as possible, preferably while you are still a fashion design student. Keep your eyes open for good courses in fashion andpaid or unpaid internships that will give you the required head start in the industry.
