How much fashion jobs really pay: 2014 Edition
Quote:
Want to know how much your dream job pays? Fashionista's second annual salary survey can offer you some guidance on that question, and also give you a sense of what you might make at every step in your career. We surveyed more than 5,000 Fashionista readers about their jobs: what they do, where they work, and yes, how much they get paid. Categories, which are purposefully broad, include retail/sales/e-commerce, marketing, publicity, design, social media, editorial and creative. Employees from some pretty major brands -- like Vogue, Marc Jacobs and Prada -- participated, so we're confident that these numbers are evident of what's really happening in the industry when it comes to pay. One thing that's important to remember: the salaries listed reflect an average. So use them as a guide, not the be-all, end-all.

What is the difference between editor in chief and editor at large?

Editor in Chief is the executive in charge of the whole operation, including operations and profitability of the magazine ... almost the same as a CEO in a corporation.

Editor at Large is a fancy name for a writer, who is sent out on various assignments. It's often a very well known writer ... who gets really juicy assignments ... and who gets paid more than a staff writer.

To be honest I was surprised that a Visual Merchandiser earns so much.
On the whole I found this list very useful for me - I'm still undecided between buying and retail management. Thanks for posting it.

Some of these salaries are definitely off and are probably being skewed by a few numbers. Hard to believe an Assistant Buyer gets paid less than a Visual Merchandiser. At least in the fashion companies I've worked for, it's been the reverse. Oh and the Assistant Market Editor I know gets paid double what is listed here.

Don't forget ... these figures are an "average" based on a survey of people who read their site and who say they work in the industry. So some people may not even be telling the truth. But with about 5,000 respondents, I would guess that it's a good starting point.

A survey of the companies who hire these people would most likely reflect a much more accurate "average".

I'm a little surprised that these salaries aren't lower. I thought everything went down since the 2008 recession and pretty much stayed there.

It's missing the Online Stylists!!

I'm currently working as a Styling Assistant on a luxury ecommerce and I must say the salary is pretty good even though I'm just starting in the industry.
