Careers in fashion
Career Choice: Posted 24-10-16 Deadline - No Deadline
From one student: When I first shared my dreams of being a designer with my parents it was a goddamn disaster. I was sitting at the dinner table with my Mum and Dad and they asked me the age old question, “What do you want to do with your life now that you are about to finish school?” Now, mind you, I was a 17-year-old who loved design subjects, history, art and the day I left compulsory science was the best day of my life, So you’d think that it should come as no surprise that I was not about to declare that I wanted to be a scientist, or an economist or a lawyer. “I want to be a fashion designer.” Dad asked, “What does that mean?” Mum said, “It’s very competitive Darling, what else do you like?” Read more here.
