Before, During & After Fashion School

To Build A Successful Career In Fashion

Sometimes fashion school is the right career move for you. And sometimes it's not.

Sometimes you need a 4-year degree to work in fashion and other times you don't.

And sometimes you should really be starting your own business… now.

There’s no one-size-fits-all in this industry or any other.

It's time you had a career guidance geared towards your career success and not toward crushing your fashion dreams.

Meet Your Fashion Career Coach

It felt like a knife to my chest when my parents insisted I study math or science when all I wanted was fashion.

They gave me an ultimatum. Give up my dreams of studying fashion or I could figure out how to pay for it myself.

This is a common situation, and one you are more likely to face should your choice be fashion school.

Career coaching is often used by those who already regret the decisions they made in the past.

I use career coaching to help young people make the right decisions from the start.

I understand perfectly how you feel about fashion.

My parents didn’t want me to go to fashion school either.

If I knew then what I knew now I would have made some very different choices.

And my story in fashion would have looked a lot different.

Even though I can’t change my past – or get back the ten years I lost - I can help you.

Passion will only get you so far.

You will also need a career plan and a very good one.

The Support That You Need

Now don’t get me wrong.

I’m not trying to paint my mom and dad in a negative light. But there is a very important issue we have to face here.

If Fashion is your passion, your career path will look very different from other people your age. If you’re going to get through this, you’re going to need someone in your corner.

Someone who is willing to support you. Even if that’s just to talk or brainstorm together.

Someone who understands what fashion means to you.

And believes you can - and should - follow your dreams.

Looking forward to serving you.

Sincerely,

Chola M.
