THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS INSANELY CUTTHROAT
And since everyone is tight lipped and secretive, no one wants to help you get ahead.
NOT IN FASHION INDUSTRY FRIENDS.
Fashion Industry Friends (FIF) is a community where we do things the complete opposite of what you normally expect from our industry.
It’s unlike anything you’ve seen in fashion where we come together as a group of badass FRIENDS!
(No, seriously. We’re really Friends, some of us even BESTIES. 💖)
In FIF, you’ll find:
- A supportive group of fashionistas just like you who share stories and experiences (even the mistakes and failures) 👯♀️
- A safe and private way to get answers to your industry questions (and never feel like you’re being judged) ☺️
- A place to be inspired and get feedback on your design work (because sometimes you just need a second set of eyes) 👀
- A way to get help from fashion professionals that you wouldn’t get access to otherwise (industry experts for help and guidance, hiring managers or recruiters for critiques, etc) 💪
Fashion Industry Friends is a kickass community full of amazing people just like you who are rooting for each other’s success.
OH SNAP! RIGHT NOW, FIF IS FULL! 😬
HERE’S THE THING ABOUT FASHION INDUSTRY FRIENDS
We’re a curated group of fashionistas who get together with a pay-it-forward attitude.
FIF is not about growing a massive Facebook group.
(BTW, we’re not even on FB because we believe privacy matters. Instead, we have a custom platform we own where your info and conversations are secure. Take that, Facebook! 👊)
FIF is about cultivating a group of kickass fashionistas from all over the world who genuinely care about and want to support their Friends.
Which is why we vet every member and only accept a limited number of applicants.
It’s a pretty badass place to be, and my guess is you’d love to be part of it. AMIRIGHT?
So, what are you waiting for, my friend!? Get your name on that waitlist already to make sure YOU get the first chance to join.👇
I WANT ONE OF THOSE PRECIOUS SPOTS! 🤞
HOW EXACTLY DOES FASHION INDUSTRY FRIENDS WORK?
For the first time in fashion history, we’ve created a place where you can let your hair down, grab your favorite beverage ☕️ 🍷, and connect with new friends who love fashion as much as you.
No judgement ❌
No secrets ❌
No competition ❌
Instead, you’ll find Friends who:
FIF members have an “I’ll scratch your back, you scratch mine” kind of attitude. We’re a pay-it-forward community where every Friend shows up for each other.
It’s unlike anything the fashion industry has ever seen, and it’s pretty freaking amazing.
You could even go so far as to call FIF a unicorn: that magical thing you’ve heard of but never really thought existed. 🦄
The difference? We DO exist. (And like unicorns, we too are magical ✨.)
GOT MORE Q’S? HERE ARE SOME A’S
💖 I WANT TO JOIN NOW? HOW CAN I ENROLL?
FIF is a curated community where we focus on making connections with each other instead of just adding new members ALL. THE. TIME.
Why? Well, I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have a few Friends who are there for me through the good and the bad than a ton of friends who never show up.
Now, this doesn’t mean you need 10 years of experience under your belt…or even 1.
It does mean that you need to apply for a spot…and right now, spots are full! You can start now by adding your name to the waitlist.
👩🏫 WHAT DO I GET IN FIF?
There’s always something badass going on in FIF each month.
- Expert guest speakers for you to get live A’s to your Q’s
- Design challenges and live portfolio critiques
- Get-shit-done-accountability sessions to help you, well, get shit done!
Beyond organized monthly activities that will help your career (and your confidence!), you have 24/7 access to FIFs from around the world.
- Prepping for a big interview? Post and one of your supportive Friends will jump in to help.
- Need a second set of eyes on your freelance pitch? Drop your draft in FIF for a review.
- Looking for feedback on your portfolio? Share the link for your Friends to give you some tips.
Whatever you need – support, ideas, or even just kind words – there are Friends in here to help you out. Because we know how difficult it is to navigate this industry when it feels like you’re ALL ALONE.
👩💻 CAN I JOIN IF I’M A FREELANCER (OR WANT TO BECOME ONE)?
YES! There are many freelancers in FIF. Some have just started their journey, others have been at it for over a decade.
Whether you’ve done 100 freelance projects or are trying to land your first one, there’s a place for you in FIF.
💼 CAN I JOIN IF I’M EMPLOYED OR LOOKING FOR A DIFFERENT JOB?
YES! Many of our Friends are employed full-time or looking for a new (or different) gig.
Some already work in the fashion industry and want to advance.
Some work in different industries and want to transition to fashion.
And some are really at work and are just looking for a kickass group of Fashion Industry Friends.
Whether you’re searching for a new opportunity, need some guidance, or just want to hang and meet cool Friends, you’ll find the support you need here.
🎓 CAN I JOIN IF I’M A STUDENT OR DON’T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE?
YES! There are Friends of all different skill levels and ages here.
Because here’s the thing about FIF:
We’re not concerned with how much fashion experience you have.
FIF is about sharing support, ideas and stories. Some of the greatest perspective comes from those who are just starting out like you. As long as you’re excited to show up for your Friends and contribute to a pay-it-forward community, we’d love to have you.
🎨 WHAT IF I’M A TECHNICAL DESIGNER, MERCHANDISER, CAD ARTISTS, TEXTILE DESIGNER, ETC?
We’d love to have you! FIF isn’t just for designers. We realize there are many behind the scenes job roles that make fashion happen, and there’s a lot of crossover in these job roles.
Plus, it’s often Friends with different expertise who offer the most valuable perspectives. BAM. Double win for you and your FIFs.
👗 CAN I JOIN IF I’M LAUNCHING MY OWN FASHION BRAND?
Nope! FIF is a place for fashion freelancers and fashion employees exclusively.
Just like a fashion portfolio, niche is better. We don’t believe we can serve many audiences and do an exceptional job.
So, while we want to be friends with everyone, launching your own brand is an entirely different beast than being a freelancer or employee.
🤔 IS FIF RIGHT FOR ME?
Now, I don’t want to burst your bubble, but this isn’t a “sign up and things will automagically happen for you” kind of situation.
To make sure you get the most out of this community, you’ll have to put some time in. If you show up? Good things will happen.
FIF is a pay-it-forward community. While your friends will bend over backwards to support you, they’ll expect the same in return.
Our happiest and most successful Friends give just as much as they take.
If this sounds like you, welcome to FIF. If you want a done-for-you solution, FIF is not your place.
📆 HOW MANY MONTHS DO I NEED TO BE IN FIF?
To make sure you’re kicking as much a$$ as possible and getting what you need out of FIF, you’ll need to start with a 3 month commitment.
That’s because success is a slow process – you wouldn’t expect to graduate from college in a couple days, and this is the same thing! Put in the time and you’ll see BIG results.
You’ll also meet some amazing new Friends. #guaranteed
💸 HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Fashion Industry Friends costs $47 per month for a 3-month commitment. That’s because good things – and making good Friends! – takes time!
Overnight success stories are about as common as winning the lottery. They just don’t happen!
Plus, by making a 3-month commitment, you can stop putting so much pressure on yourself. Fashion is already stressful enough. In FIF, you can let your hair down, pour a drink, and relax little.
Also, it’s really freaking fun in there. #promise
🚪 WHAT IF I WANT TO CANCEL?
In order to join us, you need to make a commitment to FIF for THREE months.
Once your commitment ends, you can cancel at any time.
Your membership will AUTOMATICALLY renew on a month-to-month basis if you do nothing.
☹️ WHAT IF I’M NOT HAPPY IN FIF?
We’re pretty sure you’re going to love FIF as much as we do. But if not, we don’t want you to feel like you wasted time or money.
You have a full 30 days to give FIF a test drive. If you’re not happy being a Fashion Industry Friend during that time, show me that you gave it an A+ effort and I’ll refund every penny.
😍 HEIDI!! FIF sounds AMAZING! LET ME IN PUH-LEASE!
I would! But right now, FIF is FULL!
We’re a curated group of fashionistas who are all committed to giving back to each other.
We vet every member and only accept a limited number of applicants.
