August 07, 2017

Having a job as a fashion designer and working in the fashion industry seems glamorous and creative. But to be honest, it isn’t always that way. Most people don’t talk about this publicly, but Emily Keller is different. Which is why I knew I had to invite her on the show. In this episode, Emily shares her experience working as an employee the perception of working as a designer versus the reality, how to figure out if pursuing fashion as a second career is right for you, and the often limited creativity you’ll actually use in your job.

  • The difference between what you think working in the fashion industry is like and what it really is

  • The perception of working in fashion versus the reality
  • Tips on pursuing fashion as a second career
