We've pretty much got almost everything you mentioned or at least something similar in threads that were started by members. It's the members that drive the topics that we have in our forums ... not us. We (the moderators) just try to keep it all organized and on topic so members can find what they need. All you have to do is learn how to use our search function here to find them.
Most of what you mention can be found in the
Careers, Education and Business of Fashion
Here are some of the threads in
that are related to resoures and information to help young professionals:
... pinned at the top of the CEB forum:

If you take some time to review all of the threads in the CEB forum, you will find a lot of other types of resources ... threads about various career paths for many different careers related to fashion, threads about fashion schools and colleges throughout the world and even a place to post when you need help brainstorming for a project or a school assignment: "Help Me with my Homework".
And for the
... there are a few threads in the
Do It Yourself
Sewing - #2
Places to find Clothing Fabrics Online
Sourcing Jewelry Materials
Using Photoshop for fashion illustrations - Tips & Advice
As a member, you may drive the topics. So, if you have information that you can share about a certain type of resource just pop it into the appropriate thread. If you have searched and we don't already have an applicable thread, feel free to start a thread. Make sure the title is "search friendly" with keywords of at lease 4 letters. Our search engine will find "green" and "ecological" but it can't see "eco" because it's too short, for example.
And you are correct ... we do not allow any self promotion or even promotional activities regarding an employer, a friend or an affilate. So, because we do not allow any promotional activities here and if we suspect that you are affiated with any of the links or businesses that you post, We would remove it and advise you to refrain from doing that any more.
** It's All in the Details! **
