Fashion Designer
Fashion designers are some of the most influential members of the fashion industry. Without designers, there would be no runways, fashion magazines, models and no new clothes to purchase off the rack. Designers work either for themselves, department store clothing lines or for large fashion houses. Fame and fortune comes from designing for the big name fashion houses, but designing for yourself or a department store clothing line is a more attainable career goal and a good place to start out.

Fashion Retail
From management to merchandiser, your sense of fashion can help land you a profitable career in the fashion retail industry. While a business degree helps you move up the fashion corporate ladder, it's not necessary to get started. Having an eye for fashion helps no matter your position in retail clothing sales. Whether you're helping a customer find the perfect dress, purchasing next season’s clothing line for your store or setting up in-store displays, your sense of style will impact your customers.

Fashion Photographer
Photographers help bring the fashion world to the public’s front door. Few photographers get their start working on fashion shoots, but once you work your way up, the rewards are immense. Your eye for the perfect model, pose, and lighting can make or break a clothing launch. The photographs you take may land just about anywhere, from billboards to magazines to the sides of buses. You may even find yourself photographing runway models at world famous Fashion Week.

Fashion Model
A model is the face of fashion. Young or old, there's a designer that may want to use you for their next line if you meet the right height and weight qualifications. Of course, competition is fierce, and you must have a tough skin. Filling one of the hardest jobs in the fashion industry, models must compete to land shoots and sponsorships from fashion labels. If you have a clumsy streak, modeling is likely not for you.
