It always amazes me when people don’t take fashion majors seriously. I mean who do you think makes or sells the clothes that you are wearing now… Doctors? The world needs fashion majors whether you believe it or not. No matter what others say, at least as fashion majors we can stick together. Keep reading for 10 signs that you’re probably a fashion major, too!
1. People assume your major is easy.
There is nothing that drives me more insane than when people assume that because I’m not majoring in Bio-Chemistry or Mechanical Engineering, I have an easy major. Being a fashion major isn’t just looking at fashion magazines all day, we have tests and projects just like everyone else.
2. Adults don’t understand your major.
“Oh a fashion major? What job can you get with that?”
3. You dress up for class.
Although not all students who dress up for class are fashion majors, it’s safe to go ahead and assume that a majority of them are.
4. People assume that because we are fashion majors, we HAVE to dress up everyday for class.
We’re college students too. Even fashion majors need their bum days.
5. There always seems to be that one fashion major who seems to have it all together.
They’ve known what they wanted to do with their major since freshman year, they’ve already snagged that awesome internship, and they’re more than likely have a job already set for after graduation. Yes we all know who that student is…and we envy them.
6. About 95% of your class is female.
Sorry ladies…but for those looking for your future husband in college, you aren’t likely to find him in your fashion classes!
7. You have a love-hate relationship with fashion projects.
Your professor tells you that you have to create a theme board that showcases an up and coming fashion trend. Your heart flutters with excitement as all these ideas rush to your head. You go home and about 5 hours into the project you find yourself questioning every reason for choosing this major. Trust me, fashion friends: you will get through it and it will all turn out great!
8. People automatically assume you are a design major.
“Yes, I’m a fashion major. No, I can’t design your wedding dress.”
Excuse me while I still search for mine… (Don’t worry fashion majors, you will eventually find one!)
10. People assume you want to live in a big city like New York City or Los Angeles.
Despite what television and fashion magazines might make you believe, not all fashion majors have to live in a big city to be successful.
