what to wear to a fashion industry interview - 1

10:00 am

A little while ago I tweeted about the lack of advice on the internet for what to wear to fashion interviews. It seems a few of you agreed, as pinterest searches are filled with boring black pencil skirts and polyester trousers which just don't cut it an interview for a job in the fashion industry. Many job descriptions in the industry state 'a clear interest in fashion', which is obviously communicated through the way you dress. Just like any other interview, it is important to portray yourself professionally, but with an air of creativity and individuality. Most importantly, I think it's essential to wear an outfit you love, as you'll naturally give off an air of confidence, so go on, treat yourself and plan in advance!

I had a bit of a brainstorm and seeing as I'm currently going through the application process for fashion industry placements (oh Lord help me), there couldn't be a better time to share my outfits with you. Over the course of the next few months I'll be attending careers fairs, assessment centres and interviews (gulp), and each time I'll be sharing my outfit with you on my blog. It will come under the same series, with each look being numbered so you don't miss out. Don't forget to follow me on twitter and instagram to keep up! Good luck to anyone going through the same or similar process, I do the hunger games salute to you all.

This rather colour-coordinated look was for a careers day at my uni where I got to chat to talent teams from ASOS, Debenhams, JD and the like, which was really exciting but kinda daunting as it was my first placement focused event. It was nothing like an interview, which meant I could get away with the slightly cropped top and giant hat, but I still had to look smart. I was actually really dubious about the fedora, but as soon as I told my tutor who I was applying to she ordered me to wear it, let's hope she was onto something! 

Good vibes guys
