Fashion Writers and Editors
Little change in employment is expected for all editors, while employment for all writers is expected to grow more slowly than the average for all occupations through 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. However, because of the narrow scope of fashion writing and editing, competition for jobs will be very intense, and the job outlook will not be as strong. Individuals with previous experience (especially with the Web, social media, and multimedia) and specialized education in fashion and reporting will be the most successful at finding jobs.
