Lauren has relocated from London to Munich a few months ago for her new job as copy editor at Mytheresa. With all her years of experience writing both for fashion publications and brands and recently her book, we had a great chat on everything about fashion writing and copywriting. I invited her on the show to bring you her experience and show that writing about fashion doesn't just mean writing fashion articles but you can work for brands and write copies for the newsletter or product description.

In this episode we talked about:
- how she got into writing
- what’s the difference between writing fashion articles and writing copies for fashion brands
- what makes a great fashion article
- what a workday looks like for her as the copy editor at Mytheresa
- when to add reading in your workday as a fashion writer

#61
You didn't study fashion but you still want to get into the fashion industry? This is absolutely possible!
In this episode, I'm joined by Lateefah, Buying Assistant at ASOS who will share how she got in fashion with a mental and social health degree.
In this episode you'll learn:
- how to be confident applying for jobs and not letting the fact that you lack a fashion education stops you
- how she landed a job at ASOS as a customer specialist
- how a no is just a not yet or a not here
- tips and tricks for those who didn't study fashion such as messaging on LinkedIn the recruiter manager and asking if you are eligible to apply for a job when you have fewer years of experience than those required
- how she went from customer care to buying
- how to apply for a job that requires a fashion degree anyway and get the job
- how to apply again for the same job after your first application didn't work
- how to show your interest in fashion during job interviews when you don’t have work experience yet
- and more

I really hope you’ll catch all her positive energy and confidence and learn how you can make it into this industry even if you didn't study fashion.
