Miko’s Answer

Could you provide more detail? Do you want to model in the fashion industry or a fashion consultant? Making clothes for the runway? The fashion industry is very big and has alot of avenues to take once you decide your direction.

B.K.’s Answer

I applaud you for taking steps to align your career with your interest. It is super awesome that you are aware of your strengths. I would like to add that "easy" is relative. We sometimes refer to tasks as easy because they come easy to us, and then there are times, we might say easy because expectations from others or ourselves are low. I would like to emphasize that I personally am not aware of anyone living a life or having a job or career that has been totally void of obstacles and/or challenges. Challenges can help us grow and bring out creativities that we did not know existed. You have stated that you are artistic. This is great. Being that you are artistic, I imagine that you are bubbling with creativity and this is one reason that you are considering pursuing a career in fashion. I would suggest that you reflect on the level of creativity that you would like to exude. After determining this, research the different fashion pathways. Some creative and productive careers include fashion designer, retail buyer, retail manager, retail merchandiser, stylist, textile designer, visual merchandiser, printing engineer, fabric research and development, graphic designer, creative director, and product developer. I have added additional information below that can help you along your journey. I wish you the best in your endeavors.
