The fashion industry can be difficult to break into – start with these fashion internships.
Fashion Internships to Lead You to Fashion Industry Jobs
There is some truth to the film, The Devil Wears Prada. After all, it is rumored to be based on the real-life experience of the author, Lauren Weisberger, who spent time working as a personal assistant to Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. In the story, a personal assistant with an esteemed academic background struggles to fit into a world that’s dominated by the latest fashion, deadlines, and demanding bosses. Insiders within the field claim that the novel and film aren’t too far from the truth. The fashion industry can be a tough field to break into; however, a fashion internship definitely helps. When students get real-world experience in their intended field before graduation, it sets expectations for them and puts them in a position to beat out competition during the hiring process.
