Fashion Blog: A fashion education for all majors
December 7, 2010 11:34 AM
Do you have a passion for fashion?
I have always been interested in fashion and I always knew I'd enjoy working in the industry. Until recently, I thought the only way to be active in the fashion world at SF State would be to major in Apparel and Design Merchandising or in Art with an emphasis in textiles. Then I heard about the Fashion Network Association. I have been at SF State for 3 years and I hadn't heard of this group until this semester!
According to their website, the FNA works to increase the knowledge and enhance the skills of students through experiences relevant to the fashion industry. Students create and produce fashion events on and off campus and attend networking events to gain exposure with industry professionals. They will also be able to write articles for their own periodical newsletter. FNA members will gain real life experience and see their hopeful profession in a broader light. Being in the FNA will help students interested in public relations, event production, fashion journalism, fashion marketing, fundraising and styling.
The best part is that you don't have to have a major related to fashion! All you need to do to be apart of the FNA is to have a passion for the industry. You attend meetings once a week and gain knowledge of the fashion industry "through creating, producing and promoting fashion events and publications," according to the FNA's website.
Last week some of the FNA students sold "upcycled" jewelry outside the Cesar Chavez Center for sustainability week!
The FNA students are also planning a fashion show on Dec. 6 called, "City Chic: Revamped Fall Fashion Show," in Jack Adams Hall. The fashions on the runway will be designs by SF State students.
If you want a career in fashion, being apart of the FNA would be a great addition to your resume. To join, go to the site and print the application, or head to Burk Hall 329 to pick one up. Maybe I'll see you at one of the meetings!
