How can i pursue a career within the fashion industry?
I have a passion to pursue a career within the fashion industry. I would like to be involved with the events side of things, eventually becoming a fashion events coordinator. At the moment i have no relevant qualifications for the industry. I have GCSE's and a NVQ in Business Administration. I am willing to start from the bottom, maybe being a runner or even a receptionist. Can i have some advice on how i should go about getting into this career.
