It seems like many celebrities these days are becoming fashion designers or having their own clothing line. Do you think that getting a degree would be useless to them (since they’re already famous) or do you think it would further their fashion career even more?
So do you guys think getting a degree would be useless for them (because they don’t need it) or would it further their sales of fashion and accessories?
The Olsen twins and Kimora Lee Simmons are the only ones I can think of that are successful fashion designers without a degree.
I am just curious as to what people would like to see changed in the fashion modeling industry. Model’s height? Weight, Body Image etc? And how would one go about to change that if they could?
Ok… I’m a guy, I’m going to graduate high school in 2011, and thinking about a business major, then maybe an MBA. I love clothes and fashion (I mean I wouldn’t design or make stuff or major in fashion just in case a fashion career wouldn’t work out, I just like clothes and fashion and think it would be cool to have a career in it.) I’m looking for a job in the fashion business where a fashion degree inst required, but a business or economics degree is.
There are people who have real qualifications, and knowledge who struggle to make it big, but how do many young celebrities with different background (such as singing or acting) open their own clothing or fashion line which generate millions?
I guess once you make it big, there are more ways to make it bigger.
Pretty much self-explanatory in the question above, but I’m curious on how you can become a fashion designer who dresses the models for covers of magazines and inside the magazine. I know someone who is very interested in this career and she has no idea though how to achieve it. What courses should she take in high school/college besides attending a fashion school? What are the requirements?
You might recall this uber-chic dress created by Xing-Zhen Chung Hilyard of Eko-Lab at The GreenShows’ opening night celebration. Crafted from a thrift shop shirt rescued from the depths of a Bushwick clothing bin, it is a great testament to the power of transformation and creative-couture resourcefulness.
You can now vote for XZ’s fashion upcycling project on Project Runway’s Remake Challenge featured on the popular sewing site, BurdaStyle.
