Thank you for your question. Firstly, Congratulations for your graduation with excellent result. And, I am glad to hear that you would like to be entrepreneur on fashion industry. Do you want to be a fashion designer, run a boutique, be wholesaler, etc.
Below are my suggestions:
1. Think about how do you want to run your fashion industry
2. Take fashion related courses and management courses in the college
3. Work in the industry some time to understand the operating model and establish people network
4. Start your business online first if possible
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Great job, Lawrence!
Since you've identified your goals, it's time to immerse yourself in events and surround yourself with individuals who share your mindset. Consider enrolling in courses that align with your aspirations, but remember to converse with the instructors beforehand to ensure their offerings align with your needs. Starting your journey online is a practical way to keep expenses low. Participate in clubs or groups that resonate with your interests. If you've recently graduated, your school may still provide resources such as career or guidance counseling that could be beneficial.
Best of luck, and remember to live your dream to the fullest!
