Toronto Fashion Event!

Interested in a career in fashion? Would you like to network with fashion professionals and aspiring fashion students in the Toronto area? Having a tough time breaking into the industry?

On Wednesday, March 20, from 6:00pm - 7:30pm, the Academy of Design will be hosting a really exciting "Wine and Cheese" event where they will discuss their fashion programs in detail and offer an opportunity to meet with faculty and view the recent work of fashion students.

There is no question that the fashion industry is not like it was 20 years ago and it is much harder to break into the industry without formal education. Just two weeks ago I spoke to one of the HR managers of Fashion Magazine and she told me she receives approximately "100 resumes per day". Crazy eh? When I worked at Holts, our department alone received about 50-60 resumes per day when a position was posted. It really is that competitive.

The Academy of Design has reacted to the fiercely competitive job market by ensuring each student is exposed to as many career opportunities as possible and as many skills as possible to increase each student's marketability. The programs are also shorter than a typical college program so that students can enter the field sooner. The school even has their own fashion magazine where student's can write, edit and even do creative photoshoots! How cool is that?

If you'd like to see more information before registering, see what students are saying about the programs and watch a snippet of a previous Wine & Cheese event HERE.
