Is working in fashion a good idea?

    • Thread Starter

    I have always wanted to work in fashion and i am now considering becoming a fashion journalist or buyer. However i was wondering of anyone can help me on whether:
    a) Fashion is a good route to take?

    and b) Is there any other jobs i can get without being involved in design?

    IMHO, Fashion is a good route to take as it is always evolving, there are so many jobs you could do in the industry and it doesn't have to be designing in general. You could look at doing fashion management with marketing which doesn't really involve MUCH designing.. It is a very competitive field though so you must be really passionate about fashion.

    I am definitely passionate about fashion its just that my school only does textiles and that is design based so im scared to take it!
