Parsons x Teen Vogue: Fashion Industry Essentials

In that awkward time period between Christmas and New Years Eve, I felt as dead and demotivated as ever. I decided it was about time that I enrolled in the Parsons x Teen Vogue: Fashion Industry Essentials. I really needed a push in the right direction and I hoped that this course could pull me out of my creative slump. I’ve always dreamt about working at Teen Vogue and while that is gonna have to remain a dream for now, I can still gain information from Teen Vogue employees while being taught by a handful of industry experts from both Parsons School of Design and Teen Vogue including names such as Rebecca Minkoff, Muriel Favaro, Brandon Maxwell, let alone Phillip Picardi and Elaine Welteroth which were the two names I was the most excited about from the course.

The course was a lot more time consuming than I first anticipated which is ultimately a good thing.  It meant that I actually had to sit down and really concentrate on the different assignments as opposed to just skipping ahead in the course. The best part about the course is that the final assignment is to hand in a portfolio. For me personally, I’ve had a very hard time figuring out how to make a portfolio and what potential employers want to see in a portfolio. All of the questions I had regarding portfolios were answered through the on-demand course videos and eventually, I started typing words into the empty Word document I have had open for months.

I submitted my finished portfolio for review four months after registering for the course. I paid $749 for the course which is a little bit expensive, but it is education after all; and again, it’s taught by some of the most respected names in the industry. They do, however, offer a payment solution that allows you to pay over the span of either 3, 6, or 12 months, if paying the full tuition fee at once isn’t an option for you. Also, I would advice you to look out for discount codes. Sometimes, they really offer you a great deal through emails!
