How is it to work in the fashion industry as a fashion critic and a fashion director? What major should I take to become a figure in the fashion industry but not from a dress-making part?
I am an aspiring entrepreneur to start an own fashion brand, I can do fashion illustration and sew as well but likes the business part of fashion more than actually making them. I also hold a certificate from Parsons's course. #fashion #fashion-shows #media-and-fashion #fashion-design #fashion-industry
For you to be a fashion critic you would need a strong understanding of the fashion industry as a whole as well as its history. However I imagine most importantly you’d need a writing or journalism degree.
As a fashion director this is usually referring to those in editorial. They are editors and stylists who work their way up. Perhaps consider an internship in a magazine as a starting point.
If you're looking for more of the business-side of the house (aka buyer or marketer) I'd recommend Merchandising. If you'd like something more like Fashion director which is more visual--I would take general art classes with a focus on Fashion Design.
Every school is different, and ultimately get your hands dirty, try an internship or a summer job at a fashion house / department.
