I never try to tell people exactly what to do, to be honest, because everyone has a different path they’re meant to take in life and, really, there’s no one way into fashion. personally, I didn’t go to a fashion school—I was pre-med (which is unusual for someone who works in magazines) and an English major (more common). I know people who work in fashion who are Spanish, economics, art history, journalism, film studies majors. and a thousand other majors! I always say study what you love, intern in what you want to work in. unless you have a burning desire to go to Parson’s or FIT, going to a fashion school is unnecessary to work in fashion—what’s necessary is vision, drive, patience, and determination—as well as the ability to find and apply for lots and lots of internships!
