Dear Career Girl:

I'm a freshmen in high school and I aspire to be a fashion designer one day. I see lots of opportunities for juniors and seniors interested in fashion, but none for freshmen. Could you give me some advice by telling me what I can do now to get ahead of the game?

Dear Lost:

Do you have a Fashion Club at your high school? If not, start one! It will provide opportunities you would not believe. You could put together a runway show at your school and work on fashion projects as a team, while you develop a relationship with FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. As the club president, you'll get free admission to "3 Days of Fashion," an annual summer program FIDM offers where you'll take workshops in draping and learn how to sketch the nine-head fashion figure.

In your last two years of high school, you can apply for exclusive scholarships to attend fashion design college at  FIDM. Read about Danica Y. who just won the My FIDM Fashion Club Scholarship Contest! She was FC's Featured Member this month.

Good luck to you and remember to never give up on your dream!
