I just came back from a really positive job interview, and Im pretty sure I nailed it and got the job.
As many of my followers would know, I am a fashion student planning to own his own line, Michael Jaccarino. Think of it as the next Calvin Klein or Tom Ford.
While the position is an unpaid intern at a very known fashion house in NYC, the real benefit will be to help me launch my own label successfully. Meeting many contacts will be inevitable and I want them to all have the words Michael Jaccarino on their lips.
It has been over 3 years since I was last on a job interview and I was a little nervous. Especially with everything at stake. But I walked out of there knowing I left them wanting more of me. They were hanging on my words, listening to what I had to say when responding to their questions.
I don’t think I will be waiting too long to hear from them, but I don’t want to sound cocky either.
I know my fans and followers are in my corner, and I love you all!
Once I know more I will post the news.
I guess you can say I have a unique style, I won’t be painted into a corner with regards to what I will wear. I mean, why would I follow the Dos and Don’t posts or Hottest Looks of the Season articles that tell us how we should dress. Do I really want to look like every other subscriber to the blog? It could make for an awkward afternoon if we all met at the same cafe.
As a budding fashion designer, I understand how important it is to have a sense of identity, even if it means to be inclusive in a trend. There is nothing wrong with how fashion bloggers comment on trends or fashion, in fact I think this is an important aspect of the fashion trade. Fashion designers follow what bloggers say, and bloggers dictate the latest trends through their posts. The entire fashion trade has been turned onto its head.
I realize it is super hard to get into the fashion business and I suspect my fashion brand (Michael Jaccarino) will never be as big as Calvin, Tommy, or Michael but that isnt reason for me to back down. Its more of a reason for me to get up and fight! The House of Michael Jaccarino will become something great one day. I know that, and my teachers recognize my desire to win.
“I love the Gap ads,” said Michael Jaccarino while flipping through a Rolling Stone magazines. “Their ads are always well layered and show the simplicity of the Gap style.
“We learned a lot about Gap in Fashion school, and how they were able to successfully build a business from a record store in San Fran to the multi label house of fashion they are now.”
No stranger to fashion, Michael Jaccarino is one of New York City’s up and coming designers.
