THE GLAM­OUR IN­DUS­TRY OF­FERS A VA­RI­ETY OF JOBS FOR THOSE IN­TER­ESTED IN ART AND STYLE. A LOOK AT PO­SI­TIONS THAT ONLY RE­QUIRE TRUCK­LOADS OF TAL­ENT AND HARD WORK

India Today - - COVER STORY -

Be­hind all the glitz, glam­our and gloss, is the sweat and blood of the fash­ion pro­fes­sion­als, work­ing day and night to make things hap­pen. Be­ing a pro­fes­sional in this com­pet­i­tive and ever chang­ing fash­ion world is tough, and sur­viv­ing is tougher.

Keep­ing this in mind, the fact re­mains, that be­ing a pro­fes­sional in the ever al­lur­ing world of fash­ion, is a dream and as­pi­ra­tion of many. The fash­ion in­dus­try of­fers a vast ar­ray of ca­reers for those who love fash­ion, art and style.

For many as­pir­ing de­sign­ers, en­try into a top fash­ion or de­sign school is the first step to­wards achiev­ing their dream. Un­doubt­edly, hav­ing a for­mal fash­ion ed­u­ca­tion, un­der an ex­pert and ex­pe­ri­enced fac­ulty, at a premier in­sti­tute, gives the lever­age and edge to hone one’s skills and bag the best job op­por­tu­ni­ties. How­ever, not ev­ery­one can af­ford the best de­signm or fash­ion ed­u­ca­tion, or qual­ify to be ad­mit­ted into th­ese in­sti­tutes. If they are blessed with an in­nate sense of style and eye for de­tail, then even a very ba­sic pro­fes­sional course, or the right ap­pren­tice­ship with the right de­signer or fash­ion house, can give an im­pe­tus to their ca­reer.

Though noth­ing can un­der­mine the ad­van­tage of a pro­fes­sional de­gree, here is a com­pre­hen­sive list of ca­reers that don’t re­quire a de­gree in fash­ion, but keeps the fash­ion blood flow­ing in the veins of the as­pi­rants.
