5 Tips for Writing for the Fashion Industry

Posted by on Aug 09 2012 | Blogs, Content Writing

The fashion Industry, around the world is constantly evolving. Contrary to people’s perception, the industry is producing a number of writing jobs and is giving all those fashion addicts a chance to showcase their talent in writing through Social media as well as blogging.  Here are some of the tips for starters who wish to create a name for themselves in the fashion industry-

  • Be an Extrovert - Being an introvert in fashion industry will get no results at all. A writer needs to have journalistic abilities to extract information out of the people of the industry and hence strong communication skills are a must.
  • Industry Knowledge and Research – Fashion Industry requires an individual to have an in-depth knowledge about the trends and products. There is no pre defined style that works for a longer period here and hence, a fashion writer must be aware of the ongoing changes in the products of the industry.
  • First Hand Information - If you are writing about a certain topic, e. g high waist pants, you must go and try the product by yourself. You need not necessarily indulge in the products but get first hand information of what you are going to write about.
  • Make your Article Interactive – Fashion is a subject that everyone relates to. While writing for the Fashion industry, keep your article interactive and creative. Ask your readers questions to keep them hooked to your article.
  • Follow other Magazines and Blogs – While you are in fashion writing business, subscribe to fashion magazines (E.g. Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle etc.). Reading such biggies will give you a great knowledge of the ongoing issues and trends.

Apart from the above mentioned tips, a writer can polish his or her skills by reading a number of fashion blogs and forums.

    Trying out the product is a good way to go…That is just right to understand the product and then talk about it.
