Business of fashion & beauty: how to get a job in this sector


The fashion business world is full of sectors, with many areas and characteristics that make it so fascinatingly creative. It does not limit itself to clothing and accessories, but also extends to cosmetics and personal care products for example.

Luxury cosmetics in particular are receiving increasing attention from consumers and subsequently also from brands. These fashion houses are now entering the cosmetics game offering a sensational experience, through meticulous attention to every detail.

So how can you get to know the field of luxury cosmetics and start to build a satisfying career in this sector?

The Concept

Just like clothing collections, luxury cosmetics place a big weight on the brand concept and the emotional thrust that can be transmitted to the consumer. For high-end products, it is necessary to load the merchandise with a unique element that reaches straight to the public’s heart.

Aspects like these are crucial and must be firmly instilled in the minds of those who intend to work on creating such products: the professionals behind a luxury cosmetic must know their target audience well, to be able to fully satisfy their requirements.

We always start from an idea, a concept, which then expands and forms the basis on which the upcoming product or cosmetic line will be developed. A multidisciplinary and transversal training is fundamental for a career in this field, there are many aspects to consider and having a complete vision certainly helps to succeed better in your work.

What training path should you choose to work with luxury cosmetics?

As mentioned, the training required for professionals within the world of luxury cosmetics goes beyond the classic preparation that characterizes the more traditional fashion world. Numerous skills are required, even regardless of the specific role one intends to cover.
