Hi Marina
I would like to ask for your advice.
What are the main things to consider if I want to live & work in a foreign country ?
I've emailed applications to several companies but unsuccessful,so must I stay in that country for a short period to look for jobs ?

Thank you.

Hi Mariana,
Well there are many companies that can benefit from your background and language skills. I would recommend Looking into WWD.com it's an apparel publication ( im sure u prob already know) I had worked for several comapnies and most of them can sponsor you but I think you have to be already in NYC. I'm also interested in moving to Korea and working for some company preferably in the producton/technical design field. Unfortunately Im not well versed in the Korean language but I'm trying very hard. I think that I need to put myself in Korea if I really want to pick up the language and working in my field would greatly help. I'm fluent in spanish and english ( which might help considering Korea does alot of manufacturing with South America.)
Could you advice if there is an apparel publication like WWD that I may look into for employment.

Thankl you for your time.

Hello Jasira,

I dont have my own company at the moment. I can only recommend looking into Craigslist.com for Internships or maybe a job. that way you can learn the business and work your way up until you are able to start your own business.

Good luck,

Best regards,
Carlos.

I have worked as an industrial designer in Korea and fashion designer in NYC. Honestly, I don't see any difference, they both have pros and cons. If I knew the working experience in NYC was going to be just as bad or same, I would have stayed in Korea. It's difficult to find a job in a different country unless you are there.

Hi Marina

I'm a south Korean working in nyc. I know it's really hard to get visa.
Best way is to find a sponser to support you in getting H1 Visa.
Process is pretty easy when you have a company to sponser you. Right now, small companies don't usually sponser foreigners because of economy. Be ready to pay the fee yourself. If not, you will have to find a BIG corporate company to hire you and take care of you. In that case, company will pay the price. I just went to my lawyer yesterday to apply for H1 visa. So if you have any questions, e mail me.

I hope I can help you...I know how hard it is...

I have worked in the fashion design field for over 5 years in NY. I think it is very important, if you want to become a fashion designer, you must first learn Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and a a program like Microsoft excel or similar. My experience has been with larger commercial brands, and it will make you all the more employable with a skill set and confident knowledge of fashion. The Adobe software will enable you to create flats, cad's and silhouettes very efficiently to create varying lines to show buyers.
Fashion design is certainly not all as glamorous as some imagine it to be. It's a lot of work and you must be willing to commit to a larger vision which is the company you will ultimately work for. You will work with varying personalities and egos, and it is paramount that you stay true to yourself.
You can design for yourself eventually if you desire. But you must learn firsthand the field, learning it's many aspects, such as sales and production in addition to design. If you want to become more employable in the future, it is essential that you build your fashion vocabulary, research brands, have a strong attention to detail and understanding of color. Learning sewing, , pattern drafting, construction and fit will further your knowledge and abilities enabling you have a good dialogue with your employers and a comprehensive understanding of fashion. Best of luck in your endeavors.

Hi Marina, I'm actually thinking of moving to Korea too... or Hong Kong, I've had offers to teach fashion there but I'm not interested in doing that, I have over 4 years of experience as technical designer and as assistant creative director in an avant-garde American firm, I have a bachelor's in fashion and marketing and an associates in fine arts minoring in English literature. What are some major employers in Korea? I was offered a position at BCBG as associate designer but declined the job because of the pay. I would love some info on the industry in Korea, in exchange I can offer info in the industry here. Thanks

Hello Carmine,

My girlfriend is currently about to graduate from Hannam University in Daejeon, South Korea. She studied fashion and textiles and wishes to become a fashion buyer or anything to get her foot in door for that matter. She desperately wants to move to the US, but is having a very difficult time finding a company to sponsor her. To be honest she nor I even know where to begin. She would be willing to move anywhere in the US. You obviously were successful in relocating, so my question is do you have any advice or know of any companies that she could inquire with? Her resume is quite impressive considering she will be fresh out of college. By the way she is 24 years old.

Joe,

Hi Marina,

I was wondering if you are still here Seoul?

May I ask for your advice on how I can start working in Fashion Companies here in South Korea?

So far, I have been teaching English..

I want to start my career in fashion but I don't have any connections in the fashion world yet.

I am an F4 visa holder so actually any company can hire me if they want to..

I would really appreciate your advice.

Thank you and good luck in New York! ^^

Jane
