When you hit the ripe age of 35 in the fashion industry, believe it or not you’re considered “old”. It can feel like you’re always getting beat out by “younger” candidates who have less experience but are willing to work for cheaper. Which is so frustrating - because you know your knowledge offers way more value to brands… But you’re not willing to - nor can you afford to - work for low rates. It's fair, you shouldn’t have to. Which is why this video just for you - we’ll cover 6 specific strategies you can implement (some take just a few mins) to show brands why you’re the best candidate for the job, even if you’re “old” and require a higher salary. Here's exactly what you’ll learn: 1. How to Present Yourself as a Modern Candidate 2. How to Show You’re a Good Investment 3. How to Not Undersell Yourself 4. How to Put a Positive Spin on Everything 5. How to Show You’re up to Date and on Trend in Your Category 6.

Nice to meet you, I’m Heidi. I teach fashion designers like you the real world skills you *actually* need to learn to succeed in this cutthroat industry. (It's all the stuff you don’t learn at fashion school.) I’ve worked as a contract designer for over a decade and run SuccessfulFashionDesigner.com. I’ve been able to make a healthy living doing work I love in fashion. But I got started just like you, one step at a time. It began with some embarrassing hand sewn dresses and fashion sketches that would make a 3-year-old’s artwork look like a masterpiece. Then, things changed. I learned how design was done on a large scale. I learned how to get things into production. And I learned all the skills I wish I knew when I was first starting out. Now, I dedicate most of my time teaching you all of that. This content is hard to find anywhere else (because in fashion, people keep secrets), so I decided to create it...and give most of it away for free. Want more than what you find on YouTube?
