For today’s post, I’m teaming up with ANN INC. (Ann Taylor, LOFT, Lou & Grey) to share my advice for jumping into the fashion world. Often times I receive questions regarding fashion blogging and how to make it a career, and the primary boost behind it is to focus on what exactly it is that you would like to achieve in a profession. Whether it’s owning a fashion label, designing for a major fashion brand, or even managing a retail store, determine where you see yourself in five years. The next step is to make a plan of attack. For me, writing thoughts and goals on paper helps motivate me to continue pushing. It’s also important to connect with like-minded people who are in the same business of interest, so attending networking events is also a plus.
Applying for jobs can be quite tedious and stressful, but there are some key fashion companies who are incredible to work for. For example, ANN INC. is a great place to work if you’re looking to break into the fashion industry (the only fashion retailer to receive the 2014 Gallup Great Workplace Award). ANN INC. offers a range of positions in various fields such as store management, design, merchandising, e-commerce, sourcing, and planning & allocation.
At ANN INC. their classic motto, “We Get Women” resonates through the brand. ANN INC. associates are committed to and driven by a simple but profound mission: Inspiring and connecting with each other to help women put their best selves forward every day. They also support and celebrate the richness of women’s full, multi-dimensional lives ANN INC. wants to welcome you to your career with a “hug not a handshake.”
