The Fashion Business & Career Show

The Fashion Business & Career Show

By Terina Nicole Hill
The fashion industry is often described as fickle, cutthroat and difficult to enter but as a professional designer for over 20 years, I know that this description is not exactly accurate. I am surrounded by creative professionals who have successfully made a living doing what they love; working as fashion industry professionals from small business owners to corporate accessory designers. This podcast exists to shed light on the many career opportunities that exist in the fashion industry, provide resources and inspiration to encourage emerging designers to forge ahead into the exciting career.
