No, just wondering why the other poster thought it was a good idea to say that tailoring--a job which involves altering, repairing, and making clothes--is not fashionable, especially when this thread is about fashionable jobs, not ones which will make you massive amounts of money.

Pls go

you actually can't guarantee that and no matter how much time you might have spent here you still need to lurk more.
tailoring is not an fa job.
>>
>>9463627
I work PR in one of the biggest marketing agencies in my country. It's a fun job, and the people that work here are all at least somewhat fashionable. The pay is also highly above the average of my country, so that's good.

But I'd say the most /fa/ thing would be what Jep did in The Great Beauty. Write a successful novel, spend the rest of your life as a wealthy socialite.
>>
>>9464054
It's opinion based.

You're trying to tell me that my opinion is objectively wrong. Tailoring not being an /fa/ job is not a fact, and 'lurking more' will not suddenly make me agree with you. You're telling me that I should let an imageboard dictate my opinions.

It's pretty easy to find out how long you've been here, though. How long have you been here?

You haven't even said why you think what you do about tailoring. Guess you just heard it here and sucked it all up?
>>
>>9464081

It's not an /fa/ job, just stop trying to convince someone please.

I'm at Loughborough in the U.K.
It's good, but I'd go somewhere else if I had the chance now.
I assumed the course would involve allot of colour theory, design theory etc. But all we ever do is drawing practice and live briefs with a big chunk of engineering too. It was advertised as more of a user experience, artsy kind of course but after two years I know that's pretty much bullshit.

Industrial design as a career sounds great though, you can freelance and it's easy enough to find a job. Also for creative people it's pretty fun, although there is allot more beurocracy and research than you'd think.
don't take it as a substitute for an art degree like I did. I looked at all the design course types really carefully and found that this would be a good way to apply my art talent to an actual profitable job, and in many ways it is, but I still wish I'd gone to goldsmiths for art when I had the chance. Engineering and sciences don't interest me in the least so that's my downfall.
You can find really good arts biased industrial design courses though, and with an industrial design degree you can go into graphic design, illillustration, User Experience and a whole load of other industries.

Stocks guy, it varies, exponential growth for a few years then stagnates, at 600-750k for the past 2 years, too lazy to branch out and break the plateau

Started at 17, downloaded practice account and watched some basic videos on technical analysis, after that it is just trial and error, it's a bit like chess, easy to learn, hard to master, need to use your own wits rather than learning from a book

Good luck

Mind sharing those resources if you remember them? If not, do you have any recommendations?

>easy to learn, hard to master
Do you do algo trading or something quantitative like that? Did you major in something STEM related in college?

The thing about trading is that according to most people I know, it's getting increasingly quantitative, math and CS related, hence why trading firms employ PhDs in statistics and machine learning.
Would you say it's useful to build a solid mathematical foundation before getting into trading, or is that completely useless?

Here is a pic from my first runway. This was a while ago. 2011ss maybe. We used the same production in bali as KTZ. It was fun but I was young and looking back it is embarrassing.

Same story with my photography gig. I told someone I knew how to sew/pattern make and I didn't. Googled/YouTube's some shit and made some clothes.

I did a lot of the wardrobing for the extras in that super shitty Ayn rand movie "the host"
>>
>>9464692
>What kind of initial investment did you have to reach such a high level?

Started with 10k from inheritance(after using a practice account with fake money for over a year until i became consistently profitable)

>Mind sharing those resources if you remember them? If not, do you have any recommendations?

Honestly can't remember any of the videos, but really it was just basic stuff, again it is as easy as learning all the chess pieces move and then playing around with them until you find what works for you after tonnes of practice and failures(hence why you only trade with fake money first), a lot of it is attitude and determination.

>Do you do algo trading or something quantitative like that? Did you major in something STEM related in college?

I dropped out of highschool and was/am useless at math, it is more psychology than anything(although a psychology degree won't help), just learning how regular people(idiots mostly) react, when they will panic and sell, when they get optimistic and buy, and learning when to jump in and out before the wave breaks, a lot of it is common sense and your own intuition, then there is some weirder stuff like in the asian markets the japs get freaked out when stuff reaches .13 because it is an unlucky number or something..

The big trading firms love people with CS degrees because they create programs that have like a 53% success rate at trading or whatever so you can throw millions in and make 3% profit on that after a while, that's definitely a smart way to go if you want a normal career relatively stable career with a boss(although you'll become outsourced eventually like most people in that tech industry by A.I),
I've heard people making 300k a year salary working for those big firms doing that though, but if working for yourself it isn't necessary

Good luck anyways

Top kek, I bet.
I just walked home behind two lads in tracksuits smoking dole-ups and shouting at people on bikes, it's like they try to be awful people.

Have you ever been on a night out up at the locals clubs down that way? I swear to god that I went in one and there were 10-15 people crowded around some speakers with broken rattley bass listening to speed garage dance mixes. They were all absolutely off it doing full on rave shit and gurning hard in theyre Henleys tracksuits. There was one fat girl passed out in an armchair and the bar tender was a girl who can't have been more than 15. I've never seen anything like it.
>>
>>9464798

anything over 5 ft 11 is a gangly freak in japan
>>
>>9464811

To be honest, no. It was and is very difficult. It is SO much work, and why there are whole teams of designers.

I thought it was a good idea to lie because at the time I was working 12 hours a day 6 days a week on a curry truck. At this time I still LOVED clothing and style, and would hand sew a lot of things for myself. However, I'd only get to dress up one day a week, the other 6 were my disgusting curry filled cooks clothes. I would have said anything for that opportunity, so I did. Fake it to make it, you know?
