While owning and operating your own Los Angeles fashion line will sound like the dream to many, designer Jill Aiko Yee advises kids to keep their goals simple in the beginning. Develop your own style bit by bit and take in information, says the proprietor of the women's wear business that bears her name.
Yee also reminds us that fashion is a trade industry, so while she emphasized education coming up, there are ample opportunities to learn by doing and from working underneath experienced mentors. Plus, design isn't the end-all-be-all of the industry: there's textile design, merchandising and stylist jobs as well. Hear more from Yee in the video above.
