It’s easy to see someone who’s living their fashion design dream and think, “they got lucky, but that could never happen to me.” But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
The reality? You have NO idea what their back story is. You have NO idea how hard they worked to get there. And you have NO idea how many times they failed on the way to achieving their fashion design dream.
Kirby Nunez is an unbelievably hard working man. His story is humbling, inspiring, and is one of the best examples of how perseverance and drive will pay off.
After being applying for a design job and being rejected a MASSIVE 7 times, he finally got a foot in the door as an intern at Puma. Two years later, he still works there full-time. And he loves every minute of it. He is genuinely living out his fashion design dream.
The truth about success? Is that it’s usually preceded by A LOT of failure, and that most people start at the bottom (just like Kirby). After applying to his dream fashion job at Puma 7 times, he finally got the opportunity to prove himself. But as a part-time intern, he had a long way to go to become a full time employee. So how’d he do it? By kicking major butt and going the extra mile in everything he did. In this interview, he shares the exact strategies he used to make sure he was the one to get offered a full time job at the end of the internship.
