NEET is not /fa/, I am NEET, and I am not up to the unreasonably high standards /fa/ sets for one's lifestyle choices.

Artists are certainly /fa/, but that's more of a culture/hobby than an occupation.

Really just wanted to know if it's worth it for someone to go to school for fashion if they want to make clothes for a living.

If you have any more info on other designers I'd be interested in hearing it.
>>
>>8470183

Enh. It's a pretty narrow degree. As with most BA things like that, you can say on a résumé that you learned writing, critical thinking, etc. but if you plan to go into something involving fine arts, then it might be worth it.
>>
Hahaha there are actually teenagers reading this thread basing their future careers around being fa

It just means what are cool jobs that let you live a lifestyle that's /fa/. Have fun being a janitor or whatever dude.
>>
>>8470188

Well, what, exactly, do you intend when you ask about going "to school for fashion". Do you want to learn tailoring, dressmaking, actual technical skills? Do you want to learn about merchandise planning, buying, inventory management? Do you want to learn about handling press, public relations, events? Just like there isn't just one job in the auto industry, the fashion industry encompasses designers, production managers, sales people, wholesalers, press agents, casting agents, show producers, textile manufacturers, and lots more.
>>
>>8470197
>implying I'm a janitor or whatever
>>
>>8470198
Uh, I hadn't though that far ahead.

I want to design clothes, and I actually think I am okay at it, but that is probably an extremely unreasonable dream job.

I litearlly know nothing about how college works since I wasn't planning on going until recently. You can like graduate while going for two different things, right?

I sort of liked the idea of being a procurement agent like the one anon was talking about earlier. Could I take classes for both design and sales or whatever?

Look at the nearby fashion/art schools near you or where you can afford to live and call their offices to talk about degrees that might suit your skills/goals. Many schools also require extensive portfolios for degrees/courses in design, so that's also something to ask about.
>>
>>8470183
Make sure you've already sucked all necessary dicks in academia and/or the gallery world and have a job lined up through other means, unless:

a) you also have a high school teaching qualification

b) you don't actually want a professional job and are just studying art history for your own personal interest (in which case you could just read books for free)

Anon has a point: it's a total buzzword.

Sure, we say it means "fashionable" and we associate it with the word "good", "patrician", "cool", "siq", etc. but the word is tossed around so haphazardly in so many different threads about different things from drugs, to careers, to pets, etc. It's sometimes used to refer to heroin chic, coffee and cigarettes for breakfast but also to the finance broker lifestyle and anything you can name. Without a set definition, use of the "word" is entirely subjective and meaningless and ultimately, downright fucking retarded.
>>
>>8470385
Everything is entirely subjective and meaningless once introduced to a large enough crowd, what's your point?

Suits and chains would not do well when growing I'd think... When one is out in the sun, watering plants, building green houses, moving soil, transplanting, pulling tarps, mixing nutrients. You get dirty af, so maybe the process is not effay... But the money and status could be effay
