Jobs in the world of clothing - Page 2

Thanks. As anyone interested in clothes I could of course be interested in working with design. However, I know this would require an education of some sort. Working with retail could also be an interesting option, as long as I feel a passion for the products being sold. I feel Oslo, Norway, where I come from, lacks a good store selling the brands I like. But I know I need a huge bank loan, that I need experience in the business in order to get the rights to selling clothes from the companies, and that it needs to be a good concept. I will look more into the different possibilities.

Well, so go to fashion school if you're really passionate about design. Sweden, UK and many other countries in Europe are well known for fashion so you shouldn't have a problem finding quality schools or even companies/stores to try to get some work with.

So what are the best schools to apply for, in Europe or North America? I already have an education, and money is of course a problem.

Duke is very highly rated for this sort of career. (I was told this by some Ralph Lauren headhunters and the such while in an interview for a Ralph Lauren positon)

Fine Arts is usually where you want to look.

My advice? Go to LinkedIn
Find people who work in the industry and examine their history. Some of there history might be something you may want to replicate or even try connecting with the individual for more answers.

I wonder if I would open a store, how easy/difficult is it to get license from brands to sell their products? Say brands like Baracuta, EG, Nanamica, SNS Herning (the typical Inventory Magazine brands). I wonder how for instance Tres Bien Shop got started. I know they were young Swedes fresh in the business, I can't imagine that a lot of people in the industry knew their names.
I know also many stores combine their own clothing line (often collabs) with the store, the more famous brands giving the house brand good start help.

How about getting an internship? Or getting a normal job in a store like tres bien or end clothing? What does it take to make this happen when you don't have relevant experience or education in the field. Maybe impossible.. One of the founders of Tres Bien recomended to try one of these things to gain experience.
