A career as a fashion coordinator blends the talents of fashion and public relations in an exciting and fast-paced career. A fashion coordinator plans and organizes events such as fashion shows, which means a coordinator needs knowledge and experience in fashion and public relations to find success in this career. Luckily, the two disciplines meld well as they both concern image management. If you’d like a career as a fashion coordinator, meld your image to the steps below and you’ll be on your way.
Appraise your natural personality. College Board describes ideal candidates for careers in public relations as being "strategic thinkers who like to write and like to socialize." If that doesn't describe you, you might not be suited for a career as a fashion coordinator.
Prepare a portfolio of sample writing, such as articles, scripts, mockups and other items that will show your ability to coordinate a public relations campaign and your knowledge of fashion.
Network in professional organizations and build business relationships. Consider creating a LinkedIn profile, which can serve as a resume and networking tool. As you build business relationships within the fashion industry, gather testimonials (which you can do with a LinkedIn profile) and leverage them as references when applying for jobs as a fashion coordinator.
