I agree with u all, a simple outfit!
My girlfriend was interviewed a week ago, she wore an white T-Shirt with a pair of jeans and a black chanel jacket, and guess what?! SHE GOT THE JOB!

the-smiths as we all said, wear a simple outfit, I think it's summer in Europe and USA, right? So put a simple T-Shirt and a pair of pants, try to base in this outfit :



Hope it works! =D

For Neimans ... I'd suggest dressier than a T shirt, even a high end one. My suggestion: wear whatever their sales people wear on the sales floor. Dress as if you already have the job or nicer ... certainly not more casual. If the guys are required to wear a tie, then you should wear one to the interview ... if they must wear a sports jacket or better or at least a dress shirt ... then, guess what ... so should you. Keep it simple and smart, but not trendy/edgy.

Good luck!

I agree, it's better to be overdresses in this case, although not too overdressed...

Definitely add your own style / quirks too, but I'd wear a classic dress or ensemble, and maybe add some quirky accessories, or bright shoes to highlight the outfit.

^ Guys can wear a nice button up t-shirt, nice jeans, and dress shoes.

^Ya, exactly. If I was in the position to apply for a job as a hedge fund manager, or a member of a Board, I'd come with my best Zegna or Tom Ford suit

You would hope....I have interviewed people for corporate positions and they come in in all sorts of lovliness...There's a lot of questions on this board that need clairification though and I definitely think this was one of them.

^Ya, lol. Like, my dad is the kind of person who still thinks "As long as it fits...." and all I'm thinking is "Dad.... I spend enough of your money already, you can wear my clothes, please, just let the stuff from the 80's and 90's in the wardrobe, take my custom tailored pants, please please, I beg you!"

When people got money and don't care about it, they really believe that they can wear whatever they want!

Does anyone know what would be the best outfit to wear for a fashion school interview?

I have an interview lined up for F.I.T coming up , and then Parsons, and I was wondering if I should wear the "usual" interview attire, or if I should emphasize my personal style?

Is denim (dressed up) totally out of the question for a top high-fashion magazine?

A guess ... show some personal style, but don't make it look too kooky/weird/avant garde. Yo u want to give the impression that you are serious about fashion, not just a fashion victim.

No denim ... if you question it all all, then the answer is no. See if you can find out what everyone wears to work ... and look as dressy as they are, or a tad better. Only ... if everyone, including the top bosses, wear denim should you even attempt it for an interview.
