Jobs Behind the Fashion Shows
Hi, I'm still in high school but am thinking about possible careers for the future and I want to know, what are the jobs that people do behind the scenes at fashion shows? I mean besides makeup and all that. Because I think that's really something I'd like to do but I want to know exactly WHAT they are and what kind of degree they got to get that kind of job. Thanks

deejay, lighting director, PR director, runway manager/director (manages the order of the show), those are the ones I can think of off-hand. I don't know what the qualifications would be for each job, but you could always contact a designer and see if they need a volunteer (such as helping to dress the models, ironing the garments as needed, help transporting the garments, etc.)--it might not be that glamorous, but you would be able to see what people are doing and ask them for advice after the show.

If you want to do anything in fashion, your best bet is to go to a Fashion school or college. Once you start looking into the courses, you'll see where they lead. Even a degree in fashion itself is a good starting block in any fashion based career. Oh and the more art based qualifications you've got, the better. (generally speaking.)

I actualy used to work in fashion show production, for a company that does nothing but produce fashion shows all over southern California. We arranged the dressers, the stylists, the crew, the outfits, everything. I really really loved it. We did shows in all markets, from private shows to LA Fashion Week, to department stores in Beverly Hills.

Putting Together A Charity Fashion Show
Sorry I didn't know where else to place this!!! A couple of my friends are organizing a charity fashion show and are trying to come up with a GOOD name for the show. The charity is breast cancer (pink theme maybe) or the red campaign (but we have heard some negative things about that).

Any ideas on a name?!

No sorry, there are local stores and designers showcasing their work. We had thought of pink wigs for the models but some people are against that.

The pink wigs might be a bit much, are you showing spring type clothes?

that's true...I think some of the stores may not like that also. the clothing is up to the stores, usually there is a formal wear scene, a beach wear scene, casual clothes. Some stores are local others in the mall. We just want an eye catching name for the show that would of course reflect the cause...

I took the liberty of moving this thread into the Careers & Education forum. While carriefever was technically discussing a collection, there was no visual collection or particular designer to be discussed.

Hopefully in this forum you will be able to get the assistance of other members from tFS who may have been in a similar situation, or have worked such events before. Hope this helps you find the answers you're looking for.

Fashion show music
My friend is having her graduation fashion show this late June, now she still can't find a suitable background music. Her theme is something about armor, soldier, any songs recommend??
