I also have a PR background- it's a combination of luck and talent that you "make it big." The degree will help- you might want to consider taking fashion-related classes as electives or get a fashion minor to earn experience. These classes could also help lead to an internship or an introduction to other individuals in the field. You should volunteer with fashion-based organizations, like a local charity fashion show or something, and see how you like the experience. Start building your portfolio now, that will help you out if you continue to pursue this field. Good luck!

I concur with Jenna. Try to gain summer experience at a fashion house like Dior or Chanel - even if it means grabbing coffee for the fashion director and network....network....network! You will also need to handle rejection. It comes with the territory.
