This is because some things never change:

  • People will continue to fall in love and get married – Wedding gowns, anyone???
  • There will always be fashion shows – let’s go shopping!!!
  • There will always be local events – we need branded t-shirts, who do we call?
  • My tailor keeps messing up my dress, what do I do? – buy patterns and sew myself, right!
  • We’ll simply get tired of some clothes and throw them away – LIFE
  • We will get new jobs or get so busy and need a personal shopper – the celeb status
  • We’ll get bored and take a course in fashion photography – my personal development goals
  • The agents will come looking when I get 1,000,000 followers – Instagram, here I come.

Turns out the fashion industry is one that ties into our day-to-day lives and that we must patronize frequently whether we choose to or not.

This industry is also fast-paced, fickle and profitable.

What’s more important is that you are determined to succeed in this business, build the right relationships, attract quality clients and never stop learning
