French Fashion House Employee Provides Inspiration

Published 04 April

Art & Design


A man from Skipton who has worked for some of the biggest names in the fashion industry today spoke to Art & Design students about his career so far.

Jeremy Harman, originally from Skipton, began by talking about his career to date, and then went on to give students inspiration and tips on how to succeed in the fashion industry.

Jeremy’s career began with an internship at Alexander McQueen. He then went on to complete a degree in Fashion PR at Manchester Metropolitan University, and has since been employed by a high-end French Fashion House.

Jeremy described how he learned to be very persistent when applying for his internship. He emphasised the importance of always trying again and urged students to say yes and then learn on the job. He encouraged the group to work hard and recognise that their skills are transferable and will definitely be useful. He explained that there are a wide range of jobs in the fashion industry and that using social media to track down job opportunities is vital.

Joan Murray, Art & Design tutor, said: “It was fantastic having Jeremy in for a relaxed chat. The students can really see what life could be like for them once they leave College as Jeremy was once in their shoes. The insights and stories were of great value.”
