I've often talked about my dream job before; becoming a stylist or fashion designer. But recently, I had an interview at school about by future and my career, put into reality. Apparently fashion journalism is the career path I should think about going down. To be honest, I never really thought about this job option but after doing a little bit of research, I am gobsmacked at how I didn't even think about it! Being a columnist in a top fashion magazine doesn't sound too bad does it?! Although, it is a very hard career to seize. Well, I thought that some of you may be searching for your dream job too and wish to peruse the same sort of career as me; so here is some info I found out:
A Fashion Journalist is someone who communicates fashion news, reviews and advice through magazines, newspapers, websites, TV or radio. They usually write about fashion trends, catwalk shows, street styles and/or celebrity trends (perfect!).
