I recently stumbled across this article on Glamourmagazine.co.uk although it isn't the most detailed article in the world, it is inspiring!
Reading magazines online is my new thing, so expect many more articles like this one!
How To Make It In Fashion by the Editor of VOGUE.com
'So you think you can cut it in the world's most fabulous and ferocious industry? Research ladies, before you climb into those heels and pledge your allegiance to the fashion gods. The fashion desk speaks to the Editor of VOGUE.com and shares wise words on how to get to the top.'
'After a six month placement as the editorial assistant of Vogue magazine, Dolly Jones successfully landed the writer job on Vogue.com in 2000. Five years later she was named Editor, so suffice to say that her career tips are ones worth noting down.'
Dolly's Career DO's:
DO Always be honest - don't let people think you know something when you don't. They'd always much rather you asked than pretended to know and then got it wrong.
DO Be ambitious - if your ideas don't work the first time there is generally another way. Don't give up.
DO Try the things you don't like - you never know what you might learn, who you might meet or what ideas might spring from it. It pays to be a bit brave.
Dolly's Career DON'Ts:
DON'T Assume you know the answer - collaborative thinking comes up with the best options.
DON'T Be complacent - there's always someone else who wants your job as much as you do.
DON'T Work all the time - it's hard to remember but you work better if you live life too.'
I was flicking through some old posts and began to adore vintage Vogue covers again, luckily they are relevant (sort of) for this post :)
