Anyone here work in the fashion industry, or have fashion-oriented clients? What have your experiences been like?
depends on the size. i work with beauty companies and they are easy to work with. so i am guessing fashion companies to be the same.
dippy both me and my wife are in the fashion industry, if thee is anything i can help you let me know...
the industry is very cut-throat
walk or be walked upon is how it works...there is alots of money to be made in this industry, but you have to be hungry for it.
it really depends on what you want to do.
what direction are you looking in? what position?
My wife works in fashion as well, so I'm not unfamiliar with the industry. I'm just wondering if there are things that you have to be sensitive about when working with fashion designers in particular.
I have an interview coming up with a fashion-related company.
most guys are ghey! so dont freak if they are checking you out...if you smile back you will probably get the job.
whatever you do, don't tell them their shoes don't match their purse!!!
oh yes if your interviewer likes boys, remember to constantly lick your lips.
go to the interview with no undies.
better yet go to interview with no undies and see through pants
cut out the pockets on your ass like in the movie SO FINE
if I get this job, first round at the next NYC Drinks is on me.
and choose headwear carefully,
your best options are probably:
a leather cap
good luck, i hope you get this job so we can all have a round of drinks!!
I'm sure that with all the invaluable advice you guys have provided in this thread, I will get the job within minutes of beginning the interview.
*grabs scissors and cuts holes in butt of pants, then trims eyebrows
NO DONT TRIM THE BROWS!
the big bush is the new in thing, at least thats what i see in the office the girly boys have.
on a slighlty more serious note I would investigate designers and they way they use the web [is it a web based position?] and look at all the new names so you at least sound like you know a little about the industry!
they look at what you wear, make sure your socks match your pants and your shoes are nice and shined. looking really sharp and fashionable always helps.
also, people in this industry feels more comfortable if you have a prior experience in fashion/beauty industry. at least from my own experience.
so if you don't have that, make sure to relate how your previous experience can help the design in fashion industry.
