Rank #13: Karissa Mitchell TeenVogue on deciding between your job at Cosmopolitan or shooting with Bella Hadid

Podcast cover
Read more
#41 Karissa is Assistant Market Editor at Teen Vogue. She studied journalism and then moved to New York and enrolled in the fashion marketing course because a fashion internship that she loved was just for students.

If she could go back she would have looked for a different fashion internship that wasn't just for students, because she agrees that the experience and being in the field is worth more than what you study.

We also talk about how being organized is fundamental, especially when you have to deal with several shootings at the same time, including one with Bella Hadid or Cardi B.

While interning at the top fashion publications, Karissa also launched her freelance styling gig that at some point made her lose her job at Cosmopolitan.

We also talk about how to prioritize your choices, how she got your current job at Teen Vogue from Instagram, what a market editor does, the great power of word of mouth in fashion and the tricks to get a job in fashion.

#43 Eva Geraldine is a creative consultant, stylist, fashion editor at large at Conde Nast, the co-founder of the conscious lifestyle brand goooders and she’s even working with the United Nations. The story of how she’s entered the fashion industry seems to have come out of a novel.

After her graduation in Milan, she moved to New York City and one day a fashion editor who worked at Elle stopped her in the street to compliment her for her handmade jewerly that at that time Eva was making to make some money. The editor invited Eva to come to the shooting and, from the moment she arrived on the set of the magazine, she understood that that was what she wanted to do. She didn’t give up and after a couple of months, she got her internship at Elle US. In this episode, we also talk about how to find a job you’re so passionate about that you’d do for free, how to be confident in fashion, dress for the job you want, how she became interested in the impact of fashion on the planet, and if fashion is becoming more collaborative.
