Dior of Pepper Your Talk: Successful Fashion Designer interview with Sew Heidi

SFD018: How to Break Into the Fashion Industry With No Experience

September 11, 2017

Fashion is competitive. And if you want to break into the fashion industry with no experience, it can feel even harder. But here’s the thing: there are ways you can “create” your own experience and sell yourself to get your foot in the door at an entry level job. In this interview, Dior explains exactly how.

Dior Bediako founded Pepper Your Talk out of personal frustration. As a young designer beginning her career in fashion, she realized there was little to no support available for designers to work they way up from an entry level job. In her own words, PYT is that friend that will: (a) steal all the unanswered fashion questions from your head (b) ANSWER THEM with the help of our cheeky industry connections (c) Make you laugh (when you want to cry) throughout the process of navigating the career cross-roads. In our interview, she delivers on all of these things!



You will learn:

  • How to tailor your resume / CV towards jobs and break into the fashion industry with no experience
  • How to write a cover letter / introduction that gets noticed
