Wow, of all the articles I've read on the topic, this is actually helpful for someone without any Fashion Journalism experience. Loved My Fashion Database, real treasure.

Loving this! :) Great article! While Anna Wintour didn't go to school, her father was an influential journalist/writer so she probably knew a bit more than the average person who did not attend school for it. It's probably easier to get a job after having a college degree, especially in today's society. haha. The internship-tip is great! Experience is really important.

Learning first your self is a great start to everything, a way to know if you can be dedicated to the subject, while learning. This way, you won't apply to courses you won't even bother going. And, while learning your self (via the net, books, magazines and co.) you can find out your niche in this subject and define your own way of writing/drawing/designing. Trying new things is very favoring.

(cont) I started teaching myself much more about photography and it really paid off! Being both a writer and photographer has given me amazing opportunities and a lot more works than I might otherwise have gotten, since the magazine or website don't have to send both a writer and a photographer to go a job. So, learning more than one skill is an awesome way to get ahead of "the pack", so to speak!

These truly are great tips! As a journalist in the fashion field I would like to add one: strive to be a "multi-talent". I thought the only thing I would do was write, but as I studied to become a journalist and getting a part time job at the local newspaper, I quickly realized that what set me apart from a lot of other journalists-to-be was the fact that I was also a decent photographer.
