I'm an accounting and information technology major. I want to become a CPA. But all my life I had a passion for fashion and wanted to be a fashion designer. The reason why I'm currently not pursing fashion design as a career, is because I don't have a portfolio and there is a better chance I can be an accountant than a top fashion designer for houses like Balenciaga, Chanel, and Dior.
I think if I become an accountant I can work for one of the fashion houses or magazines like Vogue, Harpers Bazzar, or Chanel. There I can become familiar with the company and maybe on the side I could work on sewing and possibly show them my designs. I will slowly climb the ladder, while working on my porfolio during my free time, outside my life as an accountant.
Yes, I might be ambitious. I'm working on my porfolio, drawing, and sewing skills. Accounting is my first thing I want to be an expert with (following the 10,000 rule or 8 years). Fashion design is my third.
How can I achieve this goal? Do I really have a chance to work in the fashion industry?
I would love to attend to New York Fashion Week. I plan on attending Parsons when I'm older. I would love to auditon for Project Runway, if they still have it.
