Fashion future turns digital?
Posted on October 31st, 2011 at 12:41 pm by and

The most important thing for getting a job in the fashion industry is to network with fashion designers and magazine editors. Many “soon-to-be” college graduates were able to do so by attending the Teen Vogue Fashion University conference, held in New York City on Sunday morning.

Designers such as Michael Kors, Alexander Wang, and Peter Som talked to 502 students from all over the world about their careers, according to the New York Times. Students had the chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at the fashion business.

Michael Kors gave the advice, “I think the biggest thing is to keep your focus. Hone what you believe in and be ready for what’s next and new. Because guess what? Fashion will always hit you a curve ball, no matter what. Just when you think you know the rules, the rules change.”

Also there to lecture and give advice were panelists from multiple social media websites. Bloggers in the audience received tips on how to manage your company, as well as how to handle social media mistakes.

Experience and networking were a big piece of advice given to attendants. With social media becoming so widely known, people have easy access to the computer where they can find information about a certain company.

Students attended the Teen Vogue Fashion University conference where they listened to famous fashion designers speak about their career and the fashion future

When speaking about candidates for jobs, panel member Ms. Astley said, “They have no excuses to not be well-informed. You don’t even have to go to a library; it’s all right there at your fingertips, online. Employers don’t want to have to bring interns up about what it is they do.”
Proving the importance of social media, Teen Vogue streamed the conference live. They plan to do this in upcoming years so that those who were not able to attend or who were not chosen will be able to do so.

    Very interesting. I would like to know what rules of fashion are always changing. I understand new seasons require new outfits and fall 2011 is going to have different fashion statements than fall 2010. It would be interesting to know though why these changes happen and what makes these new outfits “cool” or worth dressing like?

    Good post! I really like the quote you used from Michael Kors. I just have one suggestion about your use of AP Style with serial commas, when you list the names of the designers who were present you don’t need a comma before “and Peter Som.”

    Maybe you could seperate the two 1st sentences into two grafs?

    Interesting topic, nice pic, good link.

    However, this is written more like a column/commentary instead of a news story. Your lead is too subjective; how do you know this is most important?

    Don’t throw in “your” randomly:
    Bloggers in the audience received tips on how to manage your company, as well as how to handle social media mistakes.

    Passive voice:
    Experience and networking were a big piece of advice given to attendants.

    This sentence is awkward:
    With social media becoming so widely known, people have easy access to the computer where they can find information about a certain company.

    No first reference for Astley:
    When speaking about candidates for jobs, panel member Ms. Astley said, “They have no excuses to not be well-informed.

    I cannot grasp the idea of fashion becoming entirely digital. I suppose for observing the trends and watching fashion shows it would be appropriate, but for the designers and people involved in the creation, I think that there are some essential steps that involved actual contact with the fabric, garment, etc.

    I believe that indeed this is the natural way things will develop and fashion will be digital, yes, but this is the way things should be…

    Exactly this is the future of all businesses, and fashion is not an exception, so I am waiting to see all interesting things that will happen! Cleaning
