Are people in the fashion world as mean as those portrayed in The Devil Wears Prada?

Asked by ilovemyjobilovemyjob... almost 7 years ago

More in the editorial and pr fashion side than in trend. Usually the creative side is much nicer. But yes, of course that movie was a bit exaggerated but not too far off the mark. My first internship was at a magazine.

What fashion designers do you think are really overrated?

Asked by Fall out girl :))) almost 7 years ago

Hmmm, I can kind of appreciate most designers in some way or another even if I don't particularly like their work. The exception would be celebrity designers which rarely actually design their own things and are usually horrible in my opinion.

I graduate in May and am leaning toward the fashion industry. My question is, do I HAVE to be in New York, Paris, Milan to be in the fashion industry, or are there other cities where I can do so?

Asked by bella belle... almost 7 years ago

No, not necessarily, there are just a lot more options for jobs in those cities. It also depends a lot on if you are going into design, forecasting, buying, etc. I would research the companies you want to work for and see where they are located. There are a bunch of denim companies in LA, sportswear companies in the Northwest US, a few big brands in the Midwest. As far as forecasting I would be shocked if you got a job anywhere but NYC, London or Paris. There are a few but literally only a handful in other locations.

Who do you work for: freelance, an apparel company, or what?

Asked by gallacity almost 7 years ago

When I lived in New York, I worked for a textile company and now that I am in Paris I'm freelancing for different trend agencies, but I have an interview today to work for an accessories company full time... so we'll see!

what is the next coming new formal dress-up for Professionals.

Asked by harishp9211 almost 7 years ago

I usually work 2 years out so I don't pay that much attention to the season we are in. That being said I think corduroy and velvet suits will important. Sixties plaids pencil skirts and turtle necks. Dark greens and maroons are good trend colors for the season.

What's an example of a recent major fashion trend that you DIDN'T see coming?

Asked by Melanie (Seattle) almost 7 years ago

the one thing that comes to mind is the crazy colored hair trend. never saw that one coming. i don't focus on beauty but am still amazed that lara stone has blue hair in vogue. also i am sometimes surprised how long some trends will stick around. like skinny jeans or the native american trend, they just don't go away. i'm surprised by that.
