The Most Promising Careers Of 2019

2019 is your year. You need to go into the year with that mindset if you want to come out of it on top. Because for some of you, this might not have been the best year.

Not particularly because anything went wrong, but maybe just because you didn’t achieve any of the things that you wanted to achieve.

That was a pretty bleak opening, wasn’t it. So, we want to try to lift your spirits, and give you something promising to look forward to in the new year, and one thing the majority of you need is a better job! Continue reading

How To Launch Your Career As A Fashion Designer

Did you know that the global fashion industry is worth a staggering $3,000bn today? If you’ve always had a passion for following the latest trends in clothing, then there’s never been a better time than now to make your name as a fashion designer.

Study Fashion At University—Or Don’t

Studying at a university is a great opportunity to learn in depth about fashion. As well as improving your figure drawing skills and your penchant for finding eye-catching patterns, it can also help you learn computer-aided design, or CAD. In the modern age, computers have become essential to the fashion industry—drawing your ideas on a screen can be quicker, easier and much more accurate. Knowing your way around designing programs will make you a much more competent designer.

A degree in fashion merchandising might also be a choice for you. Dealing with the more logistical and entrepreneurial side of fashion, it’ll give you a lot of real-world experience in how the fashion industry works.

On the other hand—don’t. Versace studied Latin and Ancient Greek, not fashion. Gucci didn’t even go to university. It didn’t stop them from being successful, and it shouldn’t stop you either. But there are a few vital skills you’ll need if you want to make it to the top. Continue reading
