Top Jobs In Fashion And How To Get Them

Millions of people around the world are passionate about fashion, but very few pursue their dreams of working in the industry. Fashion is a hard line to get in to, job opportunities are scarce and not a lot of people know how to go about getting into the industry. But what if I told you that you could do it? Here are the top jobs in fashion and how you can get them.

  1. Stylist

Being a stylist is so much more than just picking a cute outfit, it’s a fast paced and forever changing role and is definitely not for the faint hearted. As a stylist it is your responsibility to find and cast models, create mood boards to fit the theme and requirements of a shoot, direct hair and make up artists, get the clothes and products needed for a shoot – this may mean working directly with a brand or buying products from stores, merchandising products, providing expert knowledge, taking care of sample stock and props, keeping up to date with designers, brands and trends and providing assistance during a shoot.

If that long list hasn’t put you off then here’s how you can become a stylist. Some employers prefer their stylists to have a degree in a fashion related subject such as:

  • Fashion Communicating and Styling
  • Fashion Image Making and Styling
  • Fashion Product and Promotion
  • Fashion Styling and Creative Direction
  • Fashion Styling and Production
  • Interior Styling and Design

An Internship is also a great way into the industry, being a stylist is a hands on job and there is no better way to learn the ins and outs of the fashion world than first hand experience.

 

2. Fashion Designer

As a Fashion Designer you will more than likely specialise in one area e.g. sportswear or children’s wear. There are also 3 categories of fashion you can work in as a designer:

  • High Street – Producing items in mass quantities that fit with the current trend of the general population.
  • Ready-to-wear – Producing a small amount of an item, often used for events or photo shoots.
  • Haute Coutour – A one of a kind piece that takes a long time to produce often for catwalks and red carpet events.

Your responsibilities as a Fashion Designer are to create a hand drawn or computerised visualisation of your ideas, keeping up to date with trends, planning and developing a product or range, working closely with design and production teams to ensure the product fits with requirements, buying the materials needed to produce the designs, creating samples and negotiating with customers and suppliers.

To become a designer you will need to obtain a degree in either:

  • Art and Design
  • Clothing Technology
  • Fashion Marketing and Buying
  • Fashion
  • Graphic Design
  • Knitwear
  • Textiles

Although being a fashion designer requires a lot of hard work that salary does soften the blow with most Senior Designers earning £42-85k a year or more!

3. Fashion Merchandiser

A Fashion Merchandiser is essential in the retail industry. These are the people who keep shops stocked and up to date with trends. As a fashion merchandiser your job is to plan, prepare and stock ranges, to work closely with everyone in the chain from suppliers to buyers, collect data, create visual displays, budgeting, produce sales forecasts, analyse sales trends, study competitors, negotiate costs and make financial presentations.

For this role you will need qualifications in either:

  • Accountancy and Finance
  • Business and Management
  • Economics
  • IT
  • Marketing
  • Mathematics and Statistics
  • Retail Management

The salary for a senior merchandiser is up to £85,000 per year with most companies also offering benefits packages.

16 Date Ideas For Couples Who Are Bored Of The Same Old Date Night

There is one thing that every couple wants – to spend quality time and make memories with their significant other. There are a lot of reasons why most couples don’t get to go on as many dates as they would like to. Time is one that people don’t have a lot of now days, in between juggling work, children and running a household you often forget to make time for each other. Another problem is simply not knowing what to do together! After being in a relationship for a significant amount of time t can seem like you’ve been on the same date ea million time. So I decided to try and help you out, here I have put together a list of date ideas to get you out of your date night rut.

  1. Cook Together

This is one a lot of couples don’t think of, usually one person in the household takes over cooking duties. Cooking together can be so much fun, you not only get to spend that quality time together but you can also save a ton of money by cooking at home rather than splashing out on a swanky restaurant.

2. Go on a museum date

museum.jpg

I know what you’re thinking – BORING! That’s what I thought too but I decided to give it a try and I’m so glad I did! There’s something about walking around a museum with your loved one that just feels so intimate. There’s so much to look at and so many interesting things to learn. It also opens the door to conversations you would never normally have.

3. Go to a bar together

This one could get expensive depending on your alcohol tolerance, but going to a bar together is the ideal way to let your hair down. Most bars have live performances and this is a great way for you to make new friends to double date with. So let yourself go, dance until you pass out, get gloriously drunk and stumble your way home with a greasy kebab and enjoy the hangover in the morning.

4. Play a game

Got an old board game sat in the corner gathering dust? Put it to use on your next date night and get competitive!

5. Go on a hike

If you and your partner enjoy more physical activities then hiking is the perfect date for you – lace up your boots and spend time just you, your loved on and nature.

6. Be a tourist in your own town

7. Go on a brewery tour

8. Go to a Theme Park

So this one won’t be cheap but it will definitely be worth it. Get your adrenaline pumping with roller-coasters, try your luck with carnival and arcade games and fill up on delicious snacks.

9. Go on a scavenger hunt

10. Play a sport together

Not only will he love your willingness to try but most men love a woman who can play a sport – but be sure to let him win, you don’t want to to damage his ego.

11. Go Ice Skating

A classic romantic date, go to an ice rink, skate hand in hand and allow him to feel like a hero saving you from falling, or show off your moves and perhaps teach him a thing or two.

12. Go on a local ghost tour

10 Commandments For The Perfect Lipstick

images

Getting the perfect lip look can be a hard job if you aren’t a professional, there’s so much to think about, colour, texture, formula, blending – the list is endless! Here I have wrote a list of the 10 commandments for you to get the perfect lip look!

  1. Exfoliate with a sugar lip scrub to get rid of dry flaky skin,
  2. Keep your lips hydrated, drink plenty of water and use lip balm morning, night and just before applying lipstick.
  3. Find the nest shade for your skin tone – the general rule is peachy colours for light skin, deep reds for dark skin and for a medium skin tone almost any colour will suit you!
  4. If you’re going for a bold lip colour keep the rest of your makeup minimal.
  5. Use a primer before application for longer lasting lipstick.
  6. Use a lip liner for a more defined look and to make your lips look plumper.
  7. If you’re looking for the perfect nude – easy! Match your lip colour to the colour of your nipple. (The may be a little hard  to do in the middle of a store.)
  8. Slightly smudge around the edges for a fuller look
  9. Start in the centre of your lips and work outwards to avoid errors.
  10. Apply a layer of lipstick, blot with a tissue and apply another layer for longer lasting lipstick.

I hope this post was helpful! If you have any tips for getting the perfect lip look tell me in the comments section below!
