SE 2: 4:- Natalie Joos - #FASHIONGIRL: How to make it in fashion according to the Street style Queen AND one of the most INFLUENTIAL women in America!
Here's what we learned from Natalie:
- When starting your fashion career, you must have a positive energy and say yes to anything. Be confident in your abilities, and you'll go far!
- Be persistent, and don't take no for an answer. If you believe in something, keep going after it!
- It's super important to get an internship if you want to work in the fashion industry. Start by making a list of the people who you really admire and would love to work for. Then start applying for internships with them!
- It's also really important to go abroad when you're young. Not only will it boost your fashion knowledge, but it'll help with your growth and maturity.
- As fashion-obsessed as we are, the world doesn't actually revolve around fashion. That's why Natalie recommends studying broad subjects rather than fashion-focused subjects in school. For example, if you want to work in fashion marketing, studying marketing as a whole so you'll have a broader knowledge and understanding of the topic.
