I’m a film major with a HUGE interest in fashion. I’ve thought about changing my major to fashion quite a few times, but that would invoIve more switching schools and more money. I know that I could become a costume designer or stylist, but I’m really interested in directing. I really need advice on ways to combine the two in a way that could possibly lead to a career or at least a job when I leave college.

I think your undergraduate degree means very little once you actually graduate. So if money is an issue, I would stick with the film degree and take as many classes as you can that relate to fashion and design.

I took a costume design class taught by a practicing costume designer (theater/stage). The costume designer works very closely with the director, so I’d imagine there would be opportunity to work very creatively with the director as a costume designer.

I think film would give you a broader breadth of education than strictly fashion. I studied architecture and learned how to see the world in a very exciting way. Film is about seeing, so wouldn’t you learn to see more as a film major?

I don’t know. I guess I’m just sharing my philosophy. I’m not the best person to give out job advice because I’m still not sure how I’m going to pay rent in two months.
