How to Dress for: A Fashion Interview

Navigating interviews can be an overwhelming and scary time, and more specifically when it comes to fashion interviews, the stakes and emotions can feel even higher. If you find yourself wondering how to approach, and nail the perfect outfit for a fashion interview then you should consider the following tips to help guide you on your journey:


Set the tone of your first impression through your appearance.

First impressions speaks volumes, and sets the tone for the entire interview going forward. Apart from what you first say, your outfit can serve as a statement as well. 

Keep your look fashion-forward and professional.

Incorporate the company you are interviewing with into your outfit to make yourself look professional and knowledgeable about the company. Don’t forgot to express yourself through your outfit as well but ensure to keep it appropriate and minimal. 

Expression based on role.

If you are interested in the creative side of fashion, like fashion & costume design, an outstanding choice in clothes will leave a great impression. Bright colors and unique pieces are acceptable but should be kept to acceptable amount.


If you are interested in a corporate setting, such as marketing & supply chain, a professional look would fit you best.

You wear your confidence

As we said that your appearance will make a first impression, so will your posture, your facial expression and the way you speak. What makes fashion so great is not always the pieces but the person wearing them. Confidence will make you stand out. Don’t be shy in your outfit and make sure it fits you comfortably.
