ADVICE FROM SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN FASHION

This summer I’ve had the amazing opportunity to be apart of a 2 week program with Seventeen Magazine. It’s been such a great experience so far and I can’t wait for more adventures to come! Yesterday, the girls on the program and I got to hang out with some of the top people in the fashion industry. We met five editors at Seventeen, three editors at Cosmo, and the President of Hearst Magazines. They all gave us some of the best advice I’ve heard in a while over how to break into the fashion industry, and I just have to share it with you guys. Here are the best pieces of advice from people who really know what they are talking about.
