Being A Division Assistant, With Javerick Jones

“I work in fashion” is one of the vaguest phrases that anyone in the fashion industry could ever say. The general public sees the fashion industry as a space for only creative roles – stylists, designers, models, etc. However, there are many more jobs and spaces, besides sets, warehouses, and studios, where the people in fashion can contribute to making magic happen, the results everyone sees on billboards, screens, and print.

On the administrative side, there a few roles that the industry benefits from their hard work and dedication. One of these jobs is the role of division assistant.
