Tyrone Lebon for British Vogue
In order to succeed in the industry, it’s vital to stay informed. Whether it’s Balenciaga, JW Anderson or Rejina Pyo, follow the brands you love on social media, and stay curious about new labels rising the ranks. Watch shows in real time, consume as much content as you can on industry sites like The Business of Fashion and Vogue Business – and have opinions.
We’re all different – and in fashion, that’s a great thing. As there are such a wide variety of roles within the industry, employers are seeking an equally wide variety of skills.
That said, digital, video and social media skills are always sought after, plus more general ones like adaptability, communication, problem solving, and ability to work in a team. Our courses can help you brush up on new skills.
Connections matter. As with all Condé Nast College courses, our Fashion Business course provides students with direct access to the industry, including to high profile speakers.
The one-week course provides an expert introduction to the commercial side of fashion, while also connecting you with useful contacts and opportunities to support your next steps. Find out more here.
Whether it’s a paid internship or your own projects, experience is key to getting your foot in the door. Keep an eye open for opportunities on job listings sites, and work your network.
When it comes to securing roles, Condé Nast College students have access to our careers experts, who can offer skills training, support and guidance on all aspects of securing that dream job.
