    Being a professional textile and fashion designer, I can only say I wish I lived in the States.

    I wish Fashion was also more prominent in other cities as well.

    Columbus is #7 on the list. Go Ohio! We’re also #3 on the list of top cities nationally for fashion designers – http://m.theatlanticcities.com/jobs-and-economy/2012/09/worlds-leading-cities-fashion/3182/

    It sucks because I live in Miami. I wish we had more fashion job opportunities. =-/

    I can attest to Atlanta’s paltry offerings. Although, we do happen to have a pretty decent scene here – Midtown and Buckhead (near the heart of Atl) come to mind.

    @MoiMinnie you should definitely drop by sometime! :D

    You think this also inlcudes internships? Am from the Netherlands and sometimes I think I can only dream of doing internships at these companies, haha.

    I would say any major city has something to offer. I’m stuck in Knoxville and they’re is basically nothing in the industry at all.

    What fashion jobs are in Chicago and San Francisco? I’m on the job hunt now and am trying so hard to avoid NYC bit it seems inevitable.

What do you think?
