Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadascenez1s1

Starting a new job can be intimidating. There’re new people, new processes, new rules and an entirely new routine. That’s a lot to take in for the first day. Luckily, usually on the first day of a new job you aren’t thrown right in to sink or swim. You should be given the tools to start a foundation that you can use every day. That being said, it doesn’t hurt to be extra prepared.

 

What can you learn about your new company?
If your new company has an Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter – creep it. A lot of companies will have an Instagram story called ‘office life’ or something to that effect. Definitely watch it and study it. What does their day to day look like? Be ready for anything.

 

What is their ‘style’?
If you’re already watching your new company’s Instagram story about their office culture, study what the staff are wearing. Some companies will call for business casual, but dress up a bit more, whereas others may say business casual and it’s much more casual. This will give you a good gage on to what to wear on your first day.

What can you learn about what you’ll be doing?
It’s good to do a refresher of tools you may need. For example, if you’ll be using tools like Photoshop, InDesign, Microsoft Office, it’s good to do a refresher before your first day. Even if you think you know everything you can know about the tools, watch videos, do research, and practice. You want to impress your new coworkers and be able to walk the walk if you talk the talk.

 

Bring everything they ask for… and more
As a general rule, you’ll be asked to bring in your social insurance number and direct deposit payment information. Go the extra mile, bring some pens and paper to take notes if needed. If you have any questions that have come up before your first day, jot them down. If you have any pre-booked or preplanned vacation dates, make sure you have those on hand as well.

 

If you show up on your first day prepared and with an open mind, there is no reason why you shouldn’t succeed!

Style Nine to Five - Fashion jobs in Canada

London-Fashion-Week-AW-2018-Street-Style-1-1

What does it truly take to be successful in your career, no matter the industry? For many of us, we’re not too certain where we’ll wind up unless we experience different jobs throughout our career. Even if the job you’re in isn’t one you can see yourself staying in for a long time, always do your best and make it work for YOU.

 

One piece of advice that I’ve given time and time again in interviews, and when asked how to succeed in the fashion industry or any industry, is to go above and beyond what is asked of you on the job. Sure, this may be something that everyone is used to hearing over and over again from any professional, but I don’t think many people truly understand the importance. For example, many may start working in retail as a means to an end, never thinking that it’ll be the start of their career. What I think people often forget is the fact that many corporate hires from major fashion retailers come from within the company. If you prove yourself from an entry level position as a sales associate, you would be surprised at how many doors open for you.

 

I remember phoning Le Chateau’s head office as a 17 year old, part time sales associate, to ask about what it takes to get a job in fashion marketing. From then on out, I would create inspiration boards for the sales team during my breaks, just because I wanted to, not because it was required of me from the job. I knew that I had to make the most of what I wanted from the job, and this certainly wasn’t an attitude that I abandoned even as I climbed through the retail ranks to Store Manager and Assistant Menswear Buyer for Le Chateau. As a Store Manager, I would constantly be thinking of new ways to hit and exceed the weekly store goals. Oftentimes, the best results were from the most unconventional of ideas. From getting a popular local DJ to come into the store on a rainy Saturday, to dressing up the entire sales team in Le Chateau’s own dresses to promote the product, I enjoyed my role the most when I kept my mind busy. I think many of us spend our time simply going through the paces on the job, but it really is up to ourselves to create opportunities. When I worked as an Assistant Menswear Buyer for Le Chateau, I would go to other stores on my days off to study the latest trends, and often would buy items that I thought Le Chateau should carry to our weekly meetings. I didn’t let my job title as Assistant Buyer restrict me from doing what I felt needed to be done.

 

Your personal career growth is up to you and not your management. Create the opportunity for yourself by going above and beyond. Always work towards the position you want, not simply doing enough to get by in the position you have.

Fashion Jobs – Wool Coats That Won’t Break the Bank

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaSNTF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Inspiration

The cold weather is not only among us, but it’s also here to stay (and getting worse) at least for the next few months so it’s time to start thinking about our cold weather outerwear. When we think winter we immediately cling to our parkas, which are not only the obvious choice but a practical one at that. No matter how warm, cozy and trendy parkas may be they’re not always the best option especially when it comes to dressing for the office. Bulky parkas can also be a bit of a hassle when commuting to work be it in your car, rideshare or while on transit during rush hour; that’s where wool coats come in handy.


Wool coats are another option to help you stay warm in the winter, and keep your look more refined and polished. There are so many styles and colours to choose from making them versatile for all preferences. If you want your coat to not only look good but keep you warm, we recommend going with something that’s at least at 20% blend. The more wool content within your jacket, the warmer you will be but keep in mind that impacts the price. To help keep you warm and your wallets full we found some great wool coat picks at affordable prices!

STNF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Karl Lagerfeld Double-Breasted Wool-Blend Reefer Coat

Classic Coat
Everyone needs a classic wool coat in their wardrobe and who better to turn to than Karl Lagerfeld himself? This double-breasted coast is 23% wool with a belted waist at the back for a fitted look. The Reefer Coat is available in a couple other colours but nothing says classic more than the colour black.

SNTF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Zara Menswear Coat

Menswear Inspired
Zara is one of our go-to stores for affordable wool coats that don’t only look good but keep you warm too. This light burgundy double-breasted coat is 52% wool with front flap pockets and a slit at the back. It’s the perfect pop of colour without being too aggressive, and is the perfect jacket for the upcoming holiday season!

STNF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Something Navy Double Breasted Topper

Something Navy
If Something Navy sounds familiar it’s because it should. Style blogger Arielle Charna recently launched her first independent brand and we’re obsessed over every piece, including this topper coat. It’s a navy (duh) houndstooth with a power shoulder to envy made with 44% wool. It’s currently on sale at Nordstrom though so I’d act fast before it’s gone.

STNF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_Oak&Fort Coat 2616

Oversized
What better way to stay warm this winter than wrapping yourself in an oversized wool coat? Well, what if we told you that this is real and doesn’t have to cost you a fortune!? Oak & Fort nailed it with their Coat 2612 thanks to its oversized fit, exaggerated lapels and side pockets to keep those hands toasty. It is the most expensive pick on our list, and a bit of an investment but at over 50% wool it’s well worth it.

STNF_Wool Coats That Won't Break The Bank_H&M Wool-blend Coat

Short & Sweet
If you’re looking for the perfect jacket to wear to the office, for brunch, at the market and for family events this season then you’ve got you covered. This short cut wool-blend jacket has 40% wool with a concealed button closure and pockets. It also comes in two other colours so at that price we don’t blame you for getting more than one!

Fashion Jobs – Get Ahead in Your Career

Fashion Jobs in Canada - Style Nine to FiveChristie Lohr - Fashion Career Advice

I know it’s so easy to fall into the trap of believing that if we just work hard, we’ll eventually be discovered and whisked off for bigger and better things. What we forget is that when it comes to career growth and development, it’s up to ourselves to seek out opportunities. Sometimes that means that we have to ask for what we want; there really isn’t anyone else to do it for us. Yes, that seems like a daunting task initially, but let me shed some more light on this topic and in turn, give you all a well needed confidence boost to just go for it.

I’ve always recognized myself as a bit of an introvert and some of my shyness has stayed with me throughout my fashion career, especially in the beginning. With that said, that has never stopped me from asking for what I want. If you’ve already proven yourself as a reliable employee, then chances are management also recognize the same ability in you. If you don’t vocalize your goals, then who would know to consider you for any new opportunities?

When I did fashion segments on Breakfast Television in 2007 as a representative for Le Chateau (with my appearances coordinated by Le Chateau’s PR), I had the idea to represent myself and showcase other brands by doing style segments as simply ‘Christie Lohr’, and not ‘Christie Lohr of Le Chateau’. I knew I already had an established relationship with Breakfast Television so I went ahead and expressed my interest in being an all-around fashion expert. I sent the email and asked. I knew that showcasing other brands would definitely increase the range of topics that could be discussed on their style segment, therefore appealing to a wider audience. Breakfast Television recognized that too as they agreed it would be a great idea and I then became their fashion expert for the next few years. Later moving on to CTV Morning Live.

 

If you see an opportunity within your current company or within a personal connection’s company, then express your interest! Start by presenting a reason as to why you think that you could be a great fit for the role and any ideas that you would execute if you did get the job. Most people in management are receptive to ideas promoting the growth of their companies. You’d be surprised at how many people would be willing to give your ideas a shot if you put them forward. Are you into fashion merchandising while you’re in a sales associate role? Then speak openly of your interest and approach your management with your personal inspiration/style boards! The worst someone can say is no, and that really isn’t so bad (it’s not personal, and remember that!).

 

Around the same year, in 2007, I requested an interview with FASHION Magazine even after 3 internship rejections because I knew in my heart that I could fulfill the position well. They agreed to the interview request and I got the internship in the end. 3 times a charm?

 

Have you ever had a missed opportunity because you were afraid to express your interest for fear of rejection? Make it a personal resolution to start asking for what you want!

 

Thanks for reading and for your continued support.

When most beauty enthusiasts are tasked with the job of figuring out their career path, most usually go towards either cosmetology and makeup artistry or hair. While both are amazing careers with endless possibilities and tangents respectively it’s also important to take into account that there are so many other interesting career opportunities, like say a National Educator with Caryl Baker Visage?

 

Caryl Baker has been a household name in most Canadian houses when it comes to beauty for nearly half a century. What started as a cosmetics line with a goal to remove the counter between products and clients by the early 1970’s had turned into a private beauty salon and over 250 beauty consultants representing the brand. Fast forward to present day and Caryl Baker has over 20 locations Canada-wide providing salon services like makeup applications, spa facials and microblading along with skincare, cosmetics and tools.

 

We recently sat down with Anna Koniaris, National Face Expert and Educator at Caryl Baker Visage to learn more about the company, what the role of a National Educator entails and some insight into what you can expect from a career in beauty. Anna has over 35 years experience in esthetics, make-up artistry and business relations. She also has lots of experience in franchising and spa operations and is, in fact, a Caryl Baker franchise owner. With all her industry experience and first and knowledge of all things Caryl Baker, Anna is no doubt the perfect person to share her experiences with us!

SONY DSC

SNTF: What is a National Educator for Caryl Baker Visage?

 

AK: National Educators for Caryl Baker are responsible for all training both at corporate and store levels, which is mandatory for all Caryl Baker employees.

 

SNTF: Sounds like such an interesting role. What is a day in the life of a National Educator for Caryl Baker Visage like?

 

AK: We have Face Spa location across Ontario and Alberta. Our brand takes great pride in following all the public health standards and providing “safe beauty.” All of our employees must participate in an intense education program that includes a practical and theory exam with a passing score of 70%, complete an in-salon apprenticeship program before they can be certified/insured to perform services on our valued CBV clients. I also offer customized training programs for our Franchise partners and their team of staff. I am very proud of the [training] program that I created with our founder Caryl Baker and how it has evolved over the years. Our Face Experts company-wide are amongst the industry’s best.  

SNTF_Caryl Baker Visage_2

SNTF: What are your favourite things about working at Caryl Baker Visage?

 

AK: Educating. In my opinion, knowledge is power, the driving force that will help you succeed in life. I have the opportunity to empower mostly women to increase their knowledge in the industry and/or get into an industry that will be rewarding in more ways than one throughout their career. Our 6-week program is held at our education facility in Toronto Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, three times per year and at salon level as frequently as requested by our Franchise partners. Although I take the lead in the education department I am assisted by my dream team that help me meet the educational needs of our entire organization.

When you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like you’re working and that is how I feel so many years later. Every work day has its challenges but my passion for the industry and supporting personal growth/development makes every day is a great workday.

 

SNTF: As a National Educator, your role involves a lot of travel. What are some of the challenges and rewards of this part of the job?

 

AK: When my children were young, balancing a career with travel and raising a family “solo” most certainly had its challenges, but between my passion for the industry and my commitment to my daughters I simply made it work. Over the past five years, travel has become very easy, fun and rewarding. A great way to experience Canada while you make money.  I always receive a warm welcome by our out of town franchisees and they are so very appreciative that I have come to them to educate their team of staff.

SNTF_Caryl Baker Visage_3

SNTF: Educating is obviously the main focus of your job but with all the teaching you do, is there something the role has taught you or new things you’re constantly learning from your team?

 

AK: We/I are always learning. The beauty industry is constantly evolving, staying current and being in the “know” is crucial to your ongoing success. The advantage we have in this generation that I did not have in the very early stages of my career is the internet/social media that keep us updated to the minute of new tips, trends, techniques, service offerings and results.

 

SNTF: What was it that led you to a career at Caryl Baker Visage?

 

AK: I struggled with acne as a teen that negatively impacted my self-esteem. I got a job at 15-years old at a restaurant in the Scarborough Town Center as a hostess but once I saw that I could earn more money doing what the “boys” did I pushed to be a “bus girl” clearing tables. I used all my money to find solutions for my skin. One day, a young lady with a flawless complexion greeted me at the mall as I was passing by the Caryl Baker Visage and offered my a free skin analysis and makeup application with no obligation to make a purchase, this offer continues to be a part of our brand model till today.  This experience was life-changing, I looked flawless! And the rest is history!

 

SNTF: What to you are some of the skills someone must have to be a National Educator?

 

AK: If you have personality and love people we can train you for skills!

SNTF_Caryl Baker Visage_4

SNTF: What advice do you have for someone looking at a career in cosmetics and esthetics?

 

AK: To excel in any career you need a positive attitude, patience, open to constructive criticism and practice, practice, practice!

 

SNTF: How do to stay motivated in your daily role, especially when energy levels are low?

 

AK: I am very high energy and I find that is contagious to others

 

SNTF: If you could only use three makeup and/or skin care products for the rest of your life, what would they be?

 

AK: A multiple purpose moisturizer with SPF, nourishing mascara and a hydrating lipstick.

To say this season’s hottest trends are tempting is a serious understatement. The best part is, the key trends for the season have hit both fast fashion and high fashion retailers, so regardless of your budget you can get your hands on this season’s ‘it’ trends which include animal prints, combat boots, puffer coats, plaid and shearling. Scroll down to see our trend pics for this fall and winter and shop them for yourself.

Teddy Coat

Warm and Fuzzy
Shearling is having a major moment this year. We love this cute feminine teddy bear style from H&M because it’s very on trend and you don’t have to break the bank to purchase it.

Kylie Jenner Aritzia Coat

Puffer Coat
Once the cold weather inevitably arrives, a puffer coat will be your best friend. Whether you’re stalking the mean streets, or just battling the elements a puffer that’s equal parts fashionable and practical is a must-have.

Combat Boots

Combat Boots
Another trend we’re super excited to embrace this season is the combat boot trend. We adore this hip yet edgy monochrome number from Dr. Martens — they’re super comfortable, practical and far from ordinary.

Plaid Pants

Plaid Pants
We’re definitely stocking up on chic, plaid pants this fall. We love the edgy nod to the 90s, and not to mention it’s refreshing to see something other than black pants during fall.

Leopard Print Skirt

Animal Print
This trend has finally made a strong comeback, and although in our opinion animal print is timeless, it’s great to see that designers have fully embraced this trend and now you can find animal print everything from tops and blazers to skirts and boots.

Life is full of highs and lows, and the same goes for your fashion career. You’ll have times where you feel you’re exactly where you want to be and have a sense of accomplishment. In other cases, you might be at a part in your career where you feel stuck or need more of a challenge to continue growing. Whether it’s looking for that next opportunity, or finding ways to grow with a company you love, having to refresh your career is nothing to be ashamed of. If you’re looking for that je ne sais quoi for your career check out our advice for getting back on the right career path!

 

1. Set Goals, Have A Plan

That one piece of advice everyone in your life has given you, from your dad to your financial advisor of having a plan is by no means a gimmick. Setting career goals and building an outline of some sort of plan -five years, 10 years or even three months, is extremely important to working towards your ideal of success. What’s the key to the master plan working? Knowing that you can never really plan out life, and the plan is more of a template.

 

2. Network Is Your Networth

Talking to your friends and family is always a great way to get advice. But sometimes looking to your professional network to discuss career planning might be more beneficial. Your colleagues and superiors can give you a perspective based on their first-hand experience of you on the job, and the industry you’re in. Whether it’s feedback on your strengths and opportunities or insights on potential opportunities, your professional network is a goldmine of potential.

 

3. Work With A Recruiter

If you’re looking to make a move from your current organization, you might want to try connecting with a recruiter. Once you get to a certain level in your career, the best companies and opportunities are usually filled by a recruitment firm or consultant. Not all recruiters and processes are the same, so we recommend finding someone who specializes in your industry and is dedicated to getting to know you, in order to find the right fit for you. Starting on our job board is great for finding your new career in fashion and retail!

4. Higher Education

Sometimes that promotion or new opportunity requires a bit more training or education and it’s never too late to head back to class! Some people choose to study a full degree or diploma program, while others might prefer taking a couple courses or getting a certification. There’s an endless supply of free online training that can easily be completed after work, and some companies even offer internal development courses. Whatever way you choose to go, know that education really is power!

 

5. Find A Mentor

One piece of advice any senior level manager or executive will give you, is to find a professional mentor. This is someone who has insight into your industry or company and that can provide you with advice, inspiration and knowledge to help you grow in your career. Look to people within your industry, organization or network who either you would like to learn more from or have enjoyed communicating with. Big organizations often have mentorship programs senior managers and executives participate in, so be sure to take advantage of that.
