Fashion Writers and Editors
Fashion writers and editors must learn to write well, so it is important to take English, journalism, and communications courses in high school. To gain a better perspective on fashion and design, take classes in family and consumer science, including sewing and design, if they are available in your school. Since much of the fashion industry is based overseas, taking classes in a foreign language, such as French or Italian, will also be beneficial. Since all editors and writers use computers, take computer courses and learn how to type quickly and accurately.
