Working in a high end retail store can be a way to work your way up to a marketing career. Showing you can "outfit" a store and sell a product is the basis for understanding marketing. Also, take an internship at a marketing company.
My advice for this would be to join the intern team at not just fashion companies, but online fashion blogs. When I started my music blog, that's how I made about 90% of my connections. You'll meet people who can introduce you to other people (building your connections and networking is incredibly important) maybe invite you to certain Facebook groups that further your networking, etc.
