Whether you have plans to launch your own business or hope to work for a fashion brand, conglomerate or retailer, fashion is a notoriously competitive space for emerging talent. Indeed, knowing how to impress potential hiring managers, recruiters, future collaborators or even investors can be crucial to securing a first job or account to break into fashion.
On November 1, BoF hosted an advice-led panel at the Jimmy Choo Academy (JCA) in London, attended by students and entry-level talent across the city to equip them with insights on how to navigate the early stages of their careers.
The panel, comprised of industry insiders, included Daniel Peters, founder of Fashion Minority Report, a learning and career development platform geared towards underrepresented talent in the fashion and creative sectors. He was accompanied by Mark Eley, programme director at JCA and co-founder of brand Eley Kishimoto, alongside BoF’s Sophie Soar, commercial features editor and host of the LinkedIn Live series Building a Career in Fashion.
