There’s nothing like being a woman at work, but there’s nothing quite like being in the space of fashion.
You have to be in that space to find yourself.
And what we’re seeing is a lot of women, particularly young women, who are being challenged to find their own identity in the fashion world, which is quite a new thing.
Here are 10 tips to help you navigate the fashion industry and the world that surrounds you.
There’s a lot to learn about what’s trendy in fashion, and how to get the most out of your time in the industry.
Some trends, like the hijab and headscarves, have caught on because they fit into certain cultures and are part of a wider movement.
But fashion isn’t just about wearing a dress or a headscarf.
There are a lot more choices than just the obvious ones.
Look for patterns.
There is a big debate in the United States over whether or not wearing a hijab should be allowed in public places like schools, and what the dress code should be.
In India, a law was passed last year which requires girls in public schools to wear a hijab.
But the Supreme Court has yet to rule on whether or how such a law can be enforced.
Some women say they feel it’s too restrictive.
But some men say the law is not as strict as they would like it to be.
For instance, many young men in India don’t wear hats in public.
Many women say wearing a hat in public can be a big part of their identity.
Find a team.
In order to make a good impression in the business world, you need to build relationships.
Women often struggle to find people who know what they are doing, or who will listen to them.
The best way to find a team is to find one that is supportive of your career goals, says Hari Narayanan, founder of Vibes.
You can find these people at any job, from finance to marketing.
Get into the industry yourself.
There will always be those who will only work for someone else.
So it’s a good idea to get into the fashion business yourself.
Start a small business, but get to know the people who work there, who will support you in the long run, says Narayaninan.
Know your place.
It’s always important to know your place in the hierarchy of power in the workplace.
For example, the chief operating officer (COO) of a large fashion company, which owns brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton, has been a model employee for years.
You need to understand who your bosses are and what they want from you, says Chintana Sharma, a professor of marketing at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
Work for a company that values diversity.
Many of the women in the Indian fashion industry have been inspired by the work of other women, such as designers like Gabbana, who has worked at companies like Nike and Adidas.
But there are also many men who have gone their own way and are now working for brands that are not owned by their families.
Get out of the office.
In the last few years, fashion companies in India have seen a lot less female executives.
But in India, there is a large number of women in senior positions in the public sector.
You don’t have to leave your job, says Sharma.
This is especially true of women who are starting out in the field.
When you are a young woman in India you often have to work late nights and weekends, says Ram Jain, CEO of BHU Fashion.
You may get the chance to learn from the best, but you have to understand that your career is only a small part of what is happening in the larger world.
You won’t always be in the company of the best people, says Jain.
But if you are ambitious and work hard, you can do it.
You just need to work for the right people, and be willing to sacrifice yourself for the betterment of the world.
Take pride in your achievements.
Women in India are proud of their work, says Gaurav Gupta, a business analyst and a partner at consultancy firm WSO Worldwide.
If you are not, you may not have the confidence to take on the role of the boss, says Gupta.
You should never think of yourself as an outsider, he adds.
For a woman who has been through all the above, you might find it hard to understand why it takes so much to be the boss.
But for someone who’s been through this before, it may just make sense.
