Hi! I know I've seen other high-school aged fashion mavericks on this forum like myself, and I know that because of our age we obviously cannot work as fashion assistants or even interns most of the time. However, I was wondering if any one had any other ideas on how to develop our interests in the fashion industry? I am currently one of five paid Contributing Editors (and the only high schooler) for doesthislookstupid.com, a fashion writer and blogger for the indie print and online magazine, a former features intern for a well-known women's fashion magazine, a CG! Stringer for CosmoGIRL! Magazine, and a staff member for my school's award-winning yearbook where I am working on the "Girls' Trends" page. This past summer, I also interned with a local prominent fashion designer and I also write my own fashion blog for fun. I'm also president/founder of my school's fashion club... Because I'm young, I think it's a really good idea to try out a lot of things before I get older. I was told by an editor that I used to work with that I might have a chance at attaining a summer internship with Teen Vogue or Ellegirl.com or Nylon or another teenage fashion magazine if I work really hard, since occasionally they do hire high school interns. I have no idea how to approach this though, because I do not have any solid connections to any of these magazines but I hope that perhaps it will work out because I want to work in a fashion magazine more than anything. What do you think are other good ways to explore fashion when you are still young? I'm sure my peers will appreciate the brainstorming and advice too ! Thank you so much!
