Fashion Jobs – How to Dress the Part for any Interview

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada69cd340e2046486c8fd0021f068a1b63

We’ve all heard the saying “dress to impress” and while it’s not always true, for interviews, it most definitely is. When you go for a job interview, you want to dress for the job you want, not the one you have.  What you wear to an interview shouldn’t always be the same traditional dress pants, blouse and blazer. Applying for the position you want, and learning you’ve landed the interview is stressful enough, what you wear shouldn’t have to be, which is why SNTF has come up with some great options and ideas to help you look professional and fashionable for a variety of roles.

Fashion-Forward Brand
It does depend on what type of retailer you are interviewing for, but you want to use this opportunity to show off your fashion sense and personality. If you’re interviewing somewhere more high-end, you’ll want to cater your outfit to that, think heels, clean lines and a touch of your own personal style. If it’s a brand that is a bit more casual, you can have a bit more fun with your outfit. More patterns, flats and ‘you’ in an outfit.

A Creative Position
If you are applying for a creative position, your outfit can be seen as an extension of your resumé and portfolio. This is when you would wear the least traditional interview outfit. This is where you can 100% be yourself and be unapologetic about it. Show your sense of style and your creativity with your outfit.

Office Job
When working in an office, you can be a little more casual, yet still have a professional vibe. A nice dress, no shorter than just above your knees, with a nice jacket or blazer, would be your go-to. Finish your look off with a few tasteful accessories like a trendy necklace or pair of earrings that don’t aren’t too distracting.

Receptionist
As a receptionist, you’re the face of the company. This means you need to look well put together at all times. Aim for heels, or nice flats, and a more tailored outfit such as a knee-length skirt or skinny trousers with a feminine yet professional top.

Marketing
For this interview, you want to have a crisp yet playful look, and in our opinion, colour blocking is ideal. You want to create a professional look, with a bit of a twist. Bright colours and minimal patterns will show that you are responsible, yet fun and can think outside the box. Perfect for a marketing position.

Fashion Jobs – Pattern Trousers Picks

Monday, September 10th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSTNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Inspiration

Pre-fall is a fun time in fashion. We have the chance to mix styles and fabrics from two seasons to create temperature appropriate outfits while living out those last few moments of summer. Playing with patterns is a fun way to transition summer into the fall, and patterned trousers make such a statement. We’ve seen a lot of patterned two-pieces and power suits, but those matching sets can also be worn on their own for more versatility.

 

Bold patterns are coming in hotter than ever, and for those of us who like to have fun with our outfits, now is no better time to channel your inner Harry Styles. If you’re looking for a pair of fun statement bottoms to spruce up your wardrobe look no further than our pattern trouser picks!

STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Club Monaco Heemi Houndstooth Pant

Classic Pant
Patterns don’t have to be loud, they can be subtle and classic like these houndstooth trousers from Club Monaco. We love their high waist, cropped cut and wide-ish fit, making them a perfect choice for the office, or weekends strolling through the city. Pair these with your favourite blouse for during the week, or band t-shirt while off duty!
STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Zara Snake Print Pants

Wild Pant
Calling all those who aren’t afraid to make a statement, these pants have your name all over them! This high waisted palazzo style pant is a fun snake print in warmer tones perfect for the fall. Although they are a little thinner in material, throw a pair of warm tights underneath to wear them through the winter too!

STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Forever 21 Geo Print Palazzo Pants

Geo Pants
When it comes to patterns, we love a good geo print. What is usually a big hit during the summer, can also be scaled down and transition into the fall for a 1960’s revival vibe. We love pairing geo prints with solid colours within the pattern to keep the look from getting too busy. Add a pair of white boots to let out your inner mod child!

STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Babaton Rosemarie Pant

Retro Pants
Moving forward a decade with trends, are these Babaton wide-legged wool trousers in tartan. These 70’s inspired trousers come in this navy Tartan, a grey Glencheck and a brown Houndstooth all serving us a bit of a Veronica Corningstone look. We are sure these are a pair of pants you’ll want to take from the office to brunch!

STNF Pattern Trouser Picks_Dynamite Paperbag Pant with Front Tie
Fierce Pants
Another animal print taking center stage is leopard and we honestly couldn’t be happier. We’re a huge fan of paperbag pants, and we love the front tie and pleated waist of these Dynamite ones. These are another pair of pants you’ll want to wear not only on weekdays but maybe evenings and probably even weekends.

Fashion Jobs – Why You Should Invest in That Designer Bag You’ve Been Eyeing Up

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Do you ever buy a purse that doesn’t break the bank, and you fall so in love with it, but after a few months, it falls apart? These lower-end purses are not made with as much care and detail as highen products and are made to only last so long. So rather than replacing your non-designer purse more than twice a year, maybe it’s time to invest?

 

We invest in our clothes so that what we wear isn’t fast fashion – so why not do the same with your purse? Designer bags can come in a range of prices, from reasonable, to those coveted bags that are a bit on the pricey side. With a designer bag, like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and more, yes, you are paying a bit for the name, but you are paying for so much more than that. 

 

One thing you are definitely paying for is the quality. These bags are made with the best materials around – hence the higher price tag. Much more than that, they are made with love. Many designers hand make their products, rather than outsourcing to huge factories. There is so much more precision and care put into the creation of these designs that a machine just does not have. The higher end materials mean that after a few months of use, it won’t fall apart on you. It will stand the daily wear and tear that you will put your bag through. 

Let’s not forget about how beautiful designer bags are. They can be basic, or a fun, unique design. If you want a piece to help you stand out – a designer bag is for you. Invest in a piece that is durable, but also super fashionable.

 

With all these reasons, why wouldn’t you want to invest in a bag made with love? If you have some money to spare, and you really want to treat yourself, pick your favourite designer and invest in a bag of your choosing. If the price is a factor, try going to a consignment store for a gently loved bag. Not only are you helping the environment by reducing waste, but you are also investing in a bag that may have only been used a few times before.

Fashion Jobs – 5 Things you Should Have if you Want to Get Into the Fashion Industry

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaFashionable woman texting outdoors

A lot of people dream about working in fashion but it doesn’t always seem realistic or they are blinded by misconceptions of the industry.  This work takes a great deal of discipline and hard work, and often people ask how do they get started. Whether you’ve been to fashion school or not, here are five things you should have if you want to get into the industry.

 

Blog/Website
In today’s world, your website is your resume, especially when it comes to creative industries like fashion. Having your own website will also be an advantage when up against many other candidates, and a chance to showcase your best work before you get to the interview. Depending on which area of the industry you want to dive into, a blog would also be an asset. Areas like fashion journalism, styling, magazines, and branding would love to see you use your knowledge and ability in action. A blog/website will also help you network with others in the industry and can connect you to companies globally.  

 

Killer Portfolio
Whether you’ve spent your time in fashion school or you’re self-taught, having a portfolio that speaks for itself is crucial.  Having both an online portfolio and physical portfolio is important. The physical portfolio is great to take on job interviews to show how dedicated you are and gives you a professional image.  If you attended school most likely you had a portfolio development class which assisted you in the creation of your portfolio, but don’t stop there. Upon graduating always look for ways to improve your work and add projects that aren’t school related.  Companies want to see what you can offer them, so create mock projects for brands to show off your creativity and ability. If you’re someone who has not attended fashion school you can also do mock projects for brands, create an advertising campaign, branding, and do as many collaborative photoshoots as you can.  The biggest mistake people make is creating a portfolio then keeping it the same for years, you should be continuously working on improving your skills.

 

Social Media Presence
It seems as though our social media accounts are now part of your resume. It’s not just a care-free space to post whatever you want anymore because you may have potential employers checking out your feeds. However, you can use your platforms to your advantage by building a personal brand to showcase your work and style. You can tell a lot about someone based on their Instagram feed. Creating a personal brand for yourself and establishing what you can do, it might just land you your dream job.  Companies love to see someone who demonstrates a professional environment and takes pride in what they do.

 

Good Work Ethic
Working in fashion isn’t for those just seeking a life of glamour and fame, it’s for people who are dedicated, driven, and passionate about their work.  There are numerous misconceptions about the industry and people go into a job thinking it’ll be “easy” or just “a good time”, not realizing that working in fashion takes a lot of sacrifices….it’s not your typical 9 to 5 job.  Depending what area of the industry you choose to work in you should be ready to work 18 hours a day sometimes through the night and work weekends and holidays, so it’s mandatory to have a good work ethic and passion for the work.       

 

Positive Attitude
Maintaining a positive mindset will improve your work and keep you motivated.  If you’re stuck in a job you don’t like, don’t get discouraged or give up, think about how this job will help you overall get to your dream job and it will give you the right discipline you need to keep working in this industry.  If you love what you’re doing it should be easy to stay positive, but if you find yourself hating your job and being unhappy all the time then maybe it’s time to change it up.

Fashion Jobs – Q&A with Emily Minion CEO of Chelsea King Scrunchies

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaChelsea King 1

Being comfortable, yet fashionable, is the go-to trend this year — from rompers, crew neck sweaters to accessories. And the newest brand to join this trend is none other than Chelsea King scrunchies. Bringing back an original classic is this brand’s go to. The name Chelsea King was thought of in England when creator Emily Minion took a trip to visit her sister in London. The name is broken down into two parts, the first, a borough in London called Chelsea where the two sisters visited a café. The second, when the two continued their visit down Kings Road. There, the name Chelsea King was born. Emily Minion recently took some time to chat with SNTF about her rapidly growing company, here’s what we learned…

 

SNTF: Where did you come up with the idea to start your own business? Why the scrunchie?

EM: I have always been somewhat business minded growing up. In sixth grade, I used to sell those 25 cent candy frogs to my peers and I would have a lineup at my locker at recess and lunch, haha! Since then I have had little businesses here and there just for fun. I was sewing scrunchies for my daughter and a few girlfriends told me I should sell them. My first thought was the loud classic 80s look, which I had a hard time getting on board with, so I didn’t think much of it.

 

Then that week I was out at the mall and saw the most perfectly well put together lady in Zara and she had her hair up in the perfect “messy” topknot with a black scrunchie and it looked amazing! I thought that if I could get people to see scrunchies in a new way then it would be something that I would want to brand and sell. It’s no longer about that bright loud 80’s look but about saving your hair and doing it in a more classic way. Four years ago, no one was really selling scrunchies so there was a gap in the market. Now they seem to be everywhere so it is important for me to stand out by using high-end fabrics, excellent quality, and craftsmanship as well as branding them in a way that every girl can see themselves wearing one.

 

SNTF: What advice would you give to someone else wanting to start their own company?

EM: Don’t define yourself by your brand. When I started this venture, I told myself that I would not define myself by what others would say about my brand, good or bad. It was something that I enjoy doing and promised myself I would always do it because I enjoyed it and therefore would do it to the best of my ability. I believe that as long as I am loving what I am doing, I can continually stay creative and innovative. There is lots going on in IG and other avenues of social media and it is so important to stay true to who you are as a brand and behind the brand as an individual. Don’t spend your time comparing yourself or your brand to others around you. Do the best at what you’re doing and keep growing and bettering yourself. And when you are on others IG pages or blogs spend your time encouraging others. We need to support and build up one another!

 

SNTF: What has been your favourite part about running Chelsea King?

EM: I am quite a creative person and Chelsea King is always pushing me outside of my comfort zone to learn new things and constantly grow. I look back at where I started when initially creating the business and feel continually blessed by how far it has come. I love the relationships that have been built because of Chelsea King. I am constantly meeting new people I otherwise would never have met and have created some pretty wonderful relationships. I love how supportive everyone is of each other, it is so beautiful to be a part of such an empowering group of women.

Chelsea King 2

SNTF: You’ve had some amazing collaborations. What is the process of partnering with someone else for a collaborated scrunchie?


EM: I feel very blessed to have worked with some pretty fantastic people and companies. We recently did a Smash + Tess x Chelsea King collab and it was a huge hit! What better combo then a romper and scrunchie, they just naturally go together. They sold out very quickly! Another collaboration was our Jillian Harris x Chelsea King for Mamas for Mamas. I absolutely loved doing this one because it allowed us to give back to such a beautiful cause. Jillian is amazing! She is so crazy busy, I’m sure even more so than she lets on; yet, still makes time to do things like this to support the community and others around her. She has such a huge heart! That collab was a big hit. People love knowing that they are a part of helping others. And honestly, I just have the best customers ever!! Probably the best piece of advice I could give regarding collaborations, whether it be bloggers or businesses is make sure to stay true to your brand. Do collaborations that you are passionate about and that fit your style. Don’t just do them for the sake of doing them but make sure that they marry well with the story you want your brand to portray.


SNTF: Your product has been featured in magazines and has been seen on influencers all over Instagram. Knowing that, how do you feel?

EM: It is actually pretty surreal and very humbling. I never take any of it for granted. The highest compliment for me is when I see women wearing them all the time just because they love them and not for promotional purposes.  We get so many messages from our customers telling us how thankful they are that they found us; when women to go out of their way to message us explaining how much they love our scrunchies always makes my day and reminds me that we’re on the right track.


SNTF: Which scrunchie is your all-time favourite?

EM: It has always been the Heather Grey and I think I will always say that one is my all-time favourite. It’s such an easy everyday staple to have on hand. However, I am absolutely loving the Taupe right now. It blends so well with all hair types so it just works perfectly for everyone. People always stop and ask where I got my scrunchie when I wear that one. Our most popular and best sellers are our Neutral Collection.

Chelsea King 3
SNTF: Why should all women own a scrunchie?

EM: Our scrunchies are the easiest way to save your hair from breakage and hold your hair in place without having to restyle it during the day. They are great to wear during the day and night. Scrunchies are recommended by most hairstylists to save your hair and encourage growth. The Chelsea King brand is about function in your everyday life without having to sacrifice style. We offer a large variety of colours and textures for every woman’s individual style.

Fashion Jobs – Fashion News Recap

Off-White Joins Luxury Hub in Downtown Vancouver
Youth-focused, athleisure brand Off-White has opened its doors in the heart of downtown Vancouver. The two-story, 4300 square foot space is the second Canadian location, following a store opening in Toronto last year. Situated on “Eihu Lane” between Alberni Street and Robson Street, Off-White is surrounded by other high-end designer stores such as Moncler, Saint Laurent and Prada. The design concept of the store, created by Virgil Abloh himself perfectly mirrors the casual/luxury style of the clothing. Floors are mainly concrete with gold accent shelves and tables made of Italian marble slab sit on top of dishwasher crates, demonstrating the brand’s juxtaposition. The open concept space will also feature new art installations monthly, making every visit new and unique.  

 

Comme Des Garcons Launches Online Exclusive Brand
Adrian Joffe, CEO and creative director of the company announced the launch of their internet-based diffusion line, with the help of Rei Kawakubo who will be creating the website. This marks the 18th diffusion line for the unique Japanese design house and is expected to be just as successful if not more so than its predecessors such as Play, Noir, Homme and Plus. After launching the website, the new collection for men and women will be sold in six shops worldwide.  

 

Bensadoun Retail School Opens at McGill University
After receiving a 25 million dollar donation from Aldo Bensadoun, creator of major shoe empire, ALDO Shoes, McGill University in Montreal is launching a new program focused on the future of retail. The program will be offered at all different levels: BCom, Master’s, PhD and Executive and will provide students with the resources and tools to create a successful retail landscape. Bensadoun says in a brochure for the program: “I’m excited about the vision of the Bensadoun School of Retail Management to become a global center of excellence. We will be able to provide the next generation of retailers with innovative solutions for the industry’s transformation. As the consumer’s behaviour evolves, success in retail will depend largely on the integration of connected disciplines such as big data, artificial intelligence and neuroscience, and that’s what we’ll provide for our students”. The first intake of students will be for September 2018.  

 

Oomomo Planning Canadian Expansion
Following the opening in West Edmonton Mall last summer, Japanese “100-Yen” store, Oomomo plans to expand its Canadian presence in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The store’s vast inventory falls in to categories such as ceramics, beauty products, stationery, small electronics, cleaning supplies, kitchenware, organizers, gift wrapping and even snacks. A second Edmonton location has been confirmed and is expected to open at the end of the summer. These Japanese variety stores have already proved popular across the country and Oomomo could eventually open between 20-30 locations if the new stores continue these successful results.
