Getting into the Fashion World
Hello All! My name is Brandy Suazo and I am a local blogger who recently stumbled upon this amazing internship at Denver Style Magazine. I newly discovered the Denver fashion scene and was blown away. I have always been a fashionista and fell in love with the art when I was really young. I knew I wanted to make it my career, but didn't know where to begin.
I started out with blogging and found it to be so much fun. You can write about whatever you want and show off your style to the world. I loved giving fashion advice and it really jumpstarted my motivation. All you need is a good camera and dedication. Tumblr, Blogspot, and Wordpress are awesome for blogging. They're super easy to use and you can customize your blog to your style. I, also, had an instagram that was linked to my blog. I marketed all my latest posts and even added a little bit more about my personal life to it. This helped a lot with gaining followers who will become loyal friends.
If you're looking to work for a fashion company? Network. Search for Denver fashion events on Instagram or calendars on local fashion blogs. The more people you know, the better. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there and learn something new, even, if you don't know anyone in the room. I got my foot through the door when I found out that a local fashion blog was looking for interns on instagram. I got to meet so many amazing people through that internship, including editor in chief, Heather Okimoto and director of operations, Kelsey Bigelow. So, buy those tickets for that event you were putting off and start your dream career.
Trust me, this side of the magazine is a lot more fun. :)
