The first in a series of fashion advice guides, 'How To Prepare For A Career In Fashion' is being published by Adelita Ltd, and is aimed at students who are still at school, 6th form and college. There will be job profiles on over 20 roles in fashion, from designer, buyer, stylist, and make-up artist, to fashion journalist, fashion show producer, and trend forecaster, as well as advice on work experience in fashion and educational routes to consider.
We've been conducting market research with students from across the UK, to find out what their concerns and questions are about jobs in fashion, and have taken those questions to be answered by top industry insiders from companies like Top Shop, Versace, DKNY, ASOS, Lulu Guinness and Liberty. You'll be able to find out how much designers really get paid, what the worst thing is about working as a make-up artist, which courses to consider for a career in fashion design, and the qualifications you need to work as a fashion buyer.
We will try to include as many questions as possible from students, so if you want to be included in our survey, it's not too late to take part. Simply click on the following link for access to the questionnaire: www.surveymonkey.com/s/RJKSBKG
