Thank you for taking the Fashion Career Quiz. Please find below your quiz results along with my recommendations.
Going by your responses, you find yourself in a unique position.
You want to start a fashion business, and you feel going to fashion school first is the way to do this.
But funding for school is a problem. So how can we get around this roadblock?
Here are my recommendations:
It might sound counter intuitive, but you don’t necessarily need fashion school to run a fashion business.
50% of successful fashion professionals never went to fashion school.
In the words of Anna Wintor, you either know fashion or you don’t.
With this in mind, I wrote The #1 Thing To Consider Before Fashion School.
It’s not to say whether or not you should pursue a further education in fashion. Only to point out that even if you don’t, that’s no reason to stop you.
In this day and age there’s no reason for anyone to have to wait till the end of any 4-year degree before they can start and run a business successfully.
So now I put the question to you.
What is it that you really want?
To start building a business today or to have the experience of going to fashion school first?
Whatever you choose is perfectly alright.
But not having a fashion degree is no reason not to have your fashion business.
This article will help you clarify exactly what you want and all the possible ways to get there.
Once you figure that out, you’ll have a clearer idea of how much funding you need for school, if at all.
Do let me know what you decide and if there is anything else I can do to help.
In the meantime, attached is a copy of your quiz results for your convenience.

P.S.: You’re already working towards a non-fashion degree. I suspect the most you’d need is a short course here or there to get you going in fashion.
