Not specifically careers the people of /fa/ have, but the careers that /fa/ SHOULD have.
>Hard Mode: no underground crime lords
>18, sub-urban English town
>D in maths, mostly C's
>should get a 'pass' in level 3 IT (highest at my college)
>going to do a health and social care course
I don't see how I could get a good job with what I'm doing.
I want to get into the fashion industry, or work for a fashion company managing their IT shit maybe.
Am I fucked? I don't want to die poor.
>What is the actual name of it?
purchaser. get a business degree, then get a job in the purchasing department of a company and work your way up. it's /fa/ if you're like a purchaser for barneys or some little boutique, but not so much if it's for a place like tj maxx or walmart
If he actually enjoyed it/saw himself staying there why would he ask if he should switch jobs, hm?
I'm using /fa/ as a catch-all term for things people on here would find cool, meaning he would enjoy it as well and do it for himself, not too please a community.
>using queer as a derogatory on a fashion forum
He asked "Does that mean I have to change careers?" because he was challenging you to provide a reason why being "/fa/ is this all important thing to base your life around, if you do that you're pretty much a joke of a person. Queer.
legit the only truly /fa/ people I know are neet. make money from music, tiny T-shirt business, quick entrepreneur ventures. I assume you can do these things and still be neet since you not in employment
NEET is not /fa/, I am NEET, and I am not up to the unreasonably high standards /fa/ sets for one's lifestyle choices.
Anything illegal is /fa/ as fuck as long as it has to do with drugs or whatever but that is way too easy.
Artists are certainly /fa/, but that's more of a culture/hobby than an occupation.
If you're making money you are not NEET, end of story.
NEET means No Employment, Experience, or Training. It basically means you're disabled somehow, mentally or physically. Hence why NEETs often collect autism bucks. Being self-employed and being NEET are two different things entirely.
There are lots of ways about it. You could study art history, you could study conservation, you could specialize in one style/artist/period, you might come from an academic background, a sales background.
Rick went to Parson's for fine arts and dropped out and then went to technical school. Yohji went back to school later and attended Bunka.
Were there specific designers or brands you wanted to know about?
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.
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 people in this thread that don't understand what "/fa/ career" means.
It just means what are cool jobs that let you live a lifestyle that's /fa/. Have fun being a janitor or whatever dude.
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.
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.
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)
I'm a cop in Germany, I think it's pretty effay and damn cool.
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.
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
>Tfw farmer swag
>tfw Rick clothes are perfect for the weather, but not the work
I'd say being a supplier is sort of like being a bulk dealer.
Working in 90+ deg weather every day is def not effay tho tell ya chwat.
Well, I'm a university student and I sell pingas and cocaine on the side.
Before that I worked in a machine room in a factory.
dude, no. as stated, effay means fashionable. is there one, single, clear-cut way to be fashionable? of course not. so, there's clearly going to be a multitude of contextually appropriate ways to use a word to define any and all of them.
some engineers (especially chemical, had a chemical major tutor me and was effay as fuk)
interior designers (really most in the creative field)
some ppl in compsci are pretty effay
> Red Lobster tho
but I have no money to spend on clothes
Being a citizen of Norway seems kind of /fa/.. They get paid loads by the state because they're filthy fucking rich. Sick-pay is 100% too, so you can just get a job and fake sickness/injury and spend all your money and time on clothes.
>tfw can't decide if I wanna do math or architecture
fuck it's so hard, I love buildings but I'm worthless at drawing, on the other hand solving math problems feel great and applied math gets me the dough, also I'll have career options in contrast to being an architect for 50 years.
Nrither of them are. It's unfortunate really but we need some goyim to buy into that nonsense so us 1%ers can continue to employ them to make us richer while paying them a flat rate with promises of promotion.
Yes, good goy, you do my paperwork, here's your pocket money that will just about keep you alive to continue working for me.
I was in a similar situation and I picked math. I'm starting my master's studies next autumn. Architecture is just too unreliable and I realised I lack the passion to become the best. Math is just easy, safe and useful. It's also super interesting at uni level.
I'm good enough at drawing, well, I have enough natural talent that getting really good wont be too hard.
I want to be an Architect, but I know nothing about how worthwhile a career it is to pursue.
Electrical is the most profitable, and perhaps the necessary, but not really the most /fa/ because of all the autistic fucks joining. Do it anyways.
Not sure about chemical, I know it's pretty profitable as well though.
Isn't it easier to be a hacker with EE?
>low level programming skills
>knowledge of signals, networks, telecommunications, perhaps even SCADA
A CS guy will know OSes and how to do a Python fizzbuzz but wouldn't the EE be more qualified for serious cracking of complex infrastructures?
not him but no because getting physical access to a system is a lot harder than infiltrating it remotely with software exploits. i guess it really depends on your definition of 'hack' but this conversation is retarded anyways. you dont have to school to learn things. im sure theres cs majors that know more about EE than EE majors and vice versa. a diploma is just a piece of paper that lets everyone know you arent a complete fuckwit.

goddamn these fucking threads are retarded as shit
Not really, straight male, it's really nice to see some hot girls wearing my stuff.
>there are no objective truths
The irony being that this statement purports to be an objective truth, whilst simultaneously denying the existence of objective truths.
And that's why relativism a shit.
These threads are really just an excuse to talk about our lives as /fa/ people, which is fine. A large part of fashion is lifestyle.
It's better than 10 fucking hair threads asking how long it takes to get a man bun and then a bunch of troll threads.
