Sometimes it happens. You’re working for a company that you love, in a role you enjoy and then you find yourself starting to think about finding something new and you consider looking elsewhere. There are many different reasons why this can happen. You may feel like perhaps you don’t necessarily actually like the company you work for as much as you might have thought, you’re not learning anything new, you’ve reached the top of the totem pole and there is no more room to grow. The reasons are endless, but whether or not you’re leaving on good terms or bad, you never want to burn your bridges.

 

Be professional
Whether you’re leaving out of anger or not, be cordial when you quit. Don’t say anything out of spite or something that can be used against you down the road. You may possibly want to use your current employer as a reference, so you will want to make sure your resignation process leaves no hard feelings.

 

Resignation letter
Ensure you are not just resigning verbally or via email, make sure you type out a professional resignation letter. This protects not only yourself but your employer as well. In your letter, you want to thank your employer for the experience but let them know you will be moving on. Let them know when your last day of work is. Typically, two weeks is given, but depending on your position, more notice may be required.

GrayWall-102

Work out your notice as if you weren’t leaving
Your work is a reflection of how your employer sees you as a person. If you are still working hard, and putting in the effort, it will show your employer that you still care even though you’re leaving. This is important because networking is key. Sometimes it’s all about who you know, and who they know. Even if you were a great employee for years, your notice period can leave a lasting impression.

 

Keep in touch
If you really valued the job you’re leaving, then stay in touch! Keep in contact with your old boss to stay up to date and ask them for advice. This person can become your mentor, and maybe even let you know when another career progression opportunity is available for you.

When we think of fall, we mostly think of cool weather, changing leaves, cozy knits and of course, pumpkin spice lattes. Whatever your symbols of fall might be, we can bet that florals probably aren’t on your list. But florals don’t only have to be for spring and summer months, especially this season with the floral trend going steady. Feminine and light florals are taken to dark and bold places for fall and are proving to be just as seasonally appropriate. Check out our stylish florals for fall picks!

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Aritzia Wilfred Millie Dress

The Dress
Floral dresses aren’t just for the spring and summer, and this chiffon dress from Aritzia is living proof. The length of this dress makes it not only versatile for the office, brunch or any upcoming fall events, but it’s also a great piece to wear as the weather changes. We love the vintage style of this dress thanks to its ruffled neckline and sleeves.

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Le Chateau Snake Embossed Floral Bag

The Bag
If you prefer to go more classic with your style but still like to play with trends, incorporating them into your accessories is a great way to do it. We love how edgy and bold yet feminine this bag is from Le Chateau thanks to the snake embossed material paired with the dark floral pattern. This bag is also super versatile thanks to its removable strap, so you can take it from a day at the office as a crossbody to after work drinks in the evening as a clutch!

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Zara Floral Jacquard Blazer & Pants

The Suit
For those who don’t mind to go all out with trends, you might want to take a look at this blazer and pants pairing from Zara! This has got to be the perfect floral for fall into the winter with its deep blues and bright gold. Wear each piece individually to the office, or wear them together to upcoming events, holiday parties or for a night out on the town!

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Hudsons Bay Karl Lagerfeld Paris Harlow Booties

The Shoes
Because wearing a full floral suit isn’t always office appropriate, we found the perfect booties to help you satisfy your floral craving. Leave it to the king of chic Karl Lagerfeld to bring some classic Parisian chicness to the trend! This low cut ankle bootie is embroidered with white flowers and has a gold accent heel and isn’t too high making them great for all-day wear. These are the perfect booties for any outfit from casual jeans to dresses!

SNTF_Florals for Fall_Hudsons Bay Topshop Floral Print Corset Blouse

The Blouse
Statement blouses are all the rage right now, being the must-have item from the likes of bloggers and fashionistas. They’re the perfect way to effortlessly dress up a pair of jeans or simple slacks without having to overthink anything. There isn’t one thing we don’t love about this blouse from its corset torso to the overall floral print. Pair this with your favourite mom jeans and white ankle booties for the perfect blogger à la brunch look!

Fashion Jobs – Post-Secondary Degrees That Will Help you Succeed in Fashion

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadak-is-for-kani-back-to-uni-surviving-law-school-monash-organisation-tips-university-graduation-2

You can get far in the retail world without a post-secondary degree but once you’re ready to move further, or more into the corporate sector, a degree and an education go a long way. It’s true, university and college aren’t typically for everyone, especially when you can learn a lot in real-world situations. However, many employers look for certificates or degrees in lieu of work experience to fill higher positions. Whether you are straight out of high school or looking to continue your education later in life, these are the best degrees to pursue if you want to work in the fashion industry.

 

Marketing
A fashion marketing degree can open many doors for you. You could work as a fashion buyer, a retail manager, visual merchandiser, a merchandise planner and so much more. You can take a fashion marketing degree in two ways. One is an associate degree, which is a 2-year program, or as a bachelor’s degree, which is a 4-year program. If you already have a bachelor’s degree in another field or specialty, then you can take a master’s program in fashion marketing.

 

Business
There are many ways that an education in business can help you in any type of field. Whether it be running a business, working in management, or you’re an entrepreneur. With a fashion business management degree, you can become a CEO, retail manager and much more. This can be a 2-year or 4-year degree, depending on the program. You will learn all the basics of running and keeping a company afloat, as well as the ins and outs of the business world.

371698f79adb62f601cf613db7be1c79

Design
Want to design your own clothes? Be a part of a company that you can help show their vision through their products? You’ll need a degree for that. You can do an associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree or a master’s program. In this degree, you will learn fashion merchandising, fashion illustration, sewing, graphic design, pattern development and so much more. If you’re artistic and want to create, this is the degree for you.

 

Styling
Are you passionate about the way you dress? Are you passionate about the way other people dress? Do you always mentally change the way someone styles their own outfits? Then work towards a certification in fashion styling. Fashion styling is usually offered as a certificate. It will teach you all about alterations, clothing construction, clothing selection, colour theory, fashion history and so much more. This certificate can land you as a personal stylist, or a stylist for magazines, film and media. This certificate can be taking on its own or as part as another fashion degree.

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- How to Succeed in Retail

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada early_work_everlane01

 

Working in retail is so much more than simply a part-time job for students to help them get through school. Retail can be a stepping stone to many different career fields or even be your lifelong passion. You can learn so many different skills in retail, such as multi-tasking, customer service, organization, teamwork and so much more. Retail can be a fulfilling career if you are prepared to work for it. Read on to learn about SNTF’s tips to be successful in retail.

 

Set your goals
First things first, you need to set your sights on what your end goal is going to be. Is it becoming a manager for your favourite brand? Becoming a communications and social media maven? Becoming a visual merchandiser, or even a buyer? Do you want to design the product? There are so many different paths that retail can take you. Pick what you want to do and work for it.

Aritzia

Learn the basics
Sometimes you need to start from the bottom. If you want to become a manager, first you are going to need to start as a sales associate. Learn all you can from your manager. Ask questions. Study the product. Next, start taking the initiative. You need to impress your boss to move up. Mentor your peers. Once you’ve got your foot in the door, start taking the next steps. If you show that you are invested in a company, you will get noticed.

 

Become an expert
Next, you’re going to want to learn the ins and outs of the company. What is the hierarchy? Find out who you need to reach out to so you can further yourself in the company. Reach out to the appropriate people to tell your story. What have you done to help impact business?  What are your successes? Ever heard of an elevator pitch? This is your time to shine to those who really can help you move to where you want to go.

Chanel

Work hard
Don’t get discouraged if you hear ‘no’. It happens sometimes. As our founder, Christie Lohr says “there will always be someone more talented than you. You have to work harder than them, focus on yourself, and never stop going after what lights you up”. Keep working harder, learning more, and keep reaching out.

 

Speak up
If you have ideas, don’t feel shy to voice them. Maybe it’s about what should come out next season, a different way to merchandise the product, or even a way that you can impact the business performance. The best thing you can do is make yourself known and heard. If you aren’t willing to put yourself and your ideas out there, you won’t catch the eye of someone who can help your career path.

 

Retail can be tough, but it is also extremely rewarding. Being successful depends on hard work, dedication and perseverance. Don’t give up and keep working towards your career path in retail.

Fashion Jobs – Fashion News Recap

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaFashion Careers

Canada Goose to Open in Downtown Vancouver
The exceedingly popular Toronto-based company Canada Goose has announced they will be occupying a 4000 square foot space in the upper level of Vancouver’s Pacific Centre mall. The store will be located near the Apple Store – across from Harry Rosen and will feature fun Canadian themed décor such as marble polar bear sculptures made by Jason Carter, a Canadian Indigenous artist. The company, known for its down-filled coats have boosted business exponentially at department stores in Vancouver such as Nordstrom and Holt Renfrew, with some styles of jackets being pre-sold-out before even reaching the store. Local fans of the brand and tourists alike will be welcoming the store excitedly, which will be open in time for Christmas 2018.

 

Riccardo Tisci X Vivienne Westwood
Tisci announced via his personal Instagram that Burberry will be doing an intriguing collaboration with the Duchess of Punk, Vivienne Westwood. The pairing may seem like somewhat of a juxtaposition, fusing Westwood’s defiance of tradition with Burberry’s classic heritage, but I think we will find that opposites attract. Tisci said in a statement, “ Vivienne Westwood was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer myself. She is a rebel, a punk and unrivaled in her unique representation of British style, which has inspired so many of us. When I first started at Burberry, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to approach her to do something.” The collection will be released in December 2018, three months after Tisci’s debut collection for Burberry.

 

Laurence and Chico Open Fashion Café in Vancouver
The Canadian design partners have opened what they’re calling a “fashion café” in downtown Vancouver and it is… quite something. As we know from the duo’s designs, they are not afraid of colour, texture and looking a little out there. The whimsical space sends customers into a sensory overload, with details like fluffy chairs, eyeballs on the walls, a bathroom ceiling covered in rubber ducks and every colour under the sun melded together in paintings, rugs, seats and coffee cups. The café is split into two sections; one designated for takeout where you can also purchase accessories such as books, scarves and phone cases, and one offering a reservation-only afternoon tea salon. Since Laurence and Chico do have quite a niche following, the goal of the café is to branch the brand into a larger market that anyone can experience.

Fashion Jobs – 7 ’90s Trends That are Coming Back and Here to Stay

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada7d4832bbfe5d494b39b70625a6013a24 (1)

Let’s be real, the ’90s were probably one of the best decades we’ve ever gone through. Not only for culture but for fashion as well. Who doesn’t want to have a dance party whenever they hear the Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys or N’SYNC?  Fans still love their music so much these groups have even planned mini-comebacks. Who didn’t love Tamagotchi, Pokemon and the fun things you would get in your cereal boxes? While some things should really stay in the ’90s, like the infamous matching denim outfits worn by Britney and Justin, some things were made to last forever, including certain fashion trends. 

Choker 

Chokers
In the ’90s, chokers were seen on every young woman. The iconic plastic, braided, dark coloured choker was an outfit staple. Now, they are found in velvet, leather or gold, the options are endless. These pieces are no longer seen as ‘teen’ jewellery, but as a real way to accessorize. 

 overalls-460x690

Overalls
Think Mary-Kate and Ashley after the Full House years, styled with cute graphic-tees and colourful crop tops. While they may have been bulky and childish back then, overalls have gotten a total makeover. Overalls are now a made with a sleeker line and a sexier feel. No longer will you feel like a painter, you’ll feel like you’re ready to take on the world.

Denim Skirt

Denim Skirts
One trend we’re thrilled to see making a comeback is denim skirts. making a huge comeback. You can find them distressed, a-line with buttons, or just plain denim. Not only can denim skirts be worn as a fun and flirty outfit to hang out with your friends, but it can also be transitioned for work. Throw on an oversized blazer, a dark denim skirt, a fitted blouse with tights and heels, and you are all set.

2-piece (1) 

Two-Piece Matching Sets
As if! Matching sets are as iconic as Cher’s yellow plaid set in Clueless. These sets have now been taken into the 21st century. Not only can you get a coordinating set in tops and skirts, but you can also find flowy trousers and a crop top. The two-piece sets of now make you feel sexier and confident rather than ‘matchy’. They are also super fun to mix and match.

nyfw_ss17_day7_033

Fanny Packs
Fanny Packs are the most convenient fashion piece you can have. Biking along the Seawall in Vancouver? You don’t want to have to worry about lugging your purse around. Throw your ID, credit cards, cash, or whatever your necessities may be, and carry them around hands-free.

 5612fb595eecaa8eefbc0e79925b8abd

High-Waisted Jeans
They were first introduced in the ‘70s, reborn in the ‘90s, and now they have been completely redesigned today. With more options than just flairs or ill-fitting grunge denim, you can now find the high-waisted ‘mom-jean’, super skinny jeggings, and distressed. Jeans can sometimes be boring, why not have some fun with high-waisted jeans.

 8fe6ce015fc908e827ad32724e220353

Strappy Heels
Circa Sex and the City, strappy heels were everywhere. Who didn’t follow SJP’s character Carrie’s, fashion choices? Everyone wanted those Manolo Blahniks she registered for when she married herself. Strappy heels are a great way to make shoes match every season of outfits. Perfect with a little mini dress or skinny jeans, these heels can be dressed up or down.

Bottega Veneta to Open First Canadian Standalone
Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre is quickly becoming a coveted spot for designer brand’s looking to open standalone stores. The latest to announce its Canadian debut is Bottega Veneta, expected to open this coming winter. The 4700 square foot space will open across from Holt Renfrew Men’s and beside Hugo Boss. Vancouver International Airport carries a range of Bottega Veneta accessories in their concession and you can find smaller collections of the luxury brand at department stores across the country, however, this will be the first full-line store to land in Canada.

 

Fenty Beauty Pops Up
On Wednesday, The Pennsy in Pennsylvania Plaza was home to a pop-up shop for Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. The event was in celebration of the new fall 2018 Moroccan Spice collection and was the first in a series of pop-ups for the popular makeup line. The theme was Moroccan Spice Market chic, complete with a hookah lounge, an Instagrammable supersize eyeshadow palette, products for guests to shop from the new and previous collections and even tents to try the collection, applied by global makeup artists.

 

Wear Your Label Partners with Hudson’s Bay
Wear Your Label was created with the idea of ending the stigma around mental illness. When creators of the company, Kayley Reed and Kyle MacNevin connected over their love of fashion and their personal struggles with mental health, the brand was created as a line of products with slogans such as “stigma free” and “it’s ok not to be ok”. Now, Hudson’s Bay has partnered with the brand to launch an exclusive “THE FUTURE IS STIGMA FREE” T-shirt in support of mental health awareness. The unisex T-shirts went on sale yesterday at www.thebay.com and all proceeds will be donated to  Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

And another one for Toronto’s highly appealing luxury zone! The Paris-based designer brand has set up shop in Toronto – the brand’s first Canadian standalone location. The stunning new space is the first in North America to feature Chloe’s new boutique concept. Bright and open, the store is highlighted with polished brass, marble, and oak, perfectly showcasing a full range of accessories, footwear, leather goods, jewellery and ready-to-wear collections.
