Hello, and a warm welcome to you from Stephanie Finnan, Founder of FCC, whether you’re a student at secondary school, college or university.
The Fashion Careers Counsel is an advice service for anyone who wants to be a fashion designer. The reason we’ve launched is because I’ve had so much feedback from students and grads over the years, telling me that they don’t feel prepared for entering the industry, or they simply don’t know how to get into design.
Think of us as your insider guide into the industry!
We’re here to help with all of the following:
- How to find a fashion internship, even with no experience
- How to create a professional CV, cover letter and portfolio for internship applications or application to university
- How to network effectively, even if you’re still at school/college
- Advice on creating your own work experience whilst still at school/college
- How to choose the best fashion college or university
- What to expect at an interview (both for internships and getting into university) – and how to ace it
- How to get into fashion design, even if you don’t live near a major fashion Capital
- Choosing which area of design to get into after school or college/uni…
And much more!
