In any type of business, it takes more than just the technical superiority of a product or service for one to succeed. After all, there is sometimes very little to choose from between products. This is where product marketing comes in. In the fashion industry, fashion houses realized this and this was what led to the birth of fashion marketing jobs.

Even though the actual job description may differ from one organization to another, the core responsibility of a fashion marketer is ensuring that consumers are not only aware of but are able to easily access the latest designs and fashion trends. The fashion marketer is also responsible for projecting the image of the fashion house that they represent to its clientele. Marketing fashion jobs acts as a link between the creative minds of the fashion designers and the needs and expectations of their customers.

Marketing jobs in general always require one to have a high level of understanding of the market. In addition, an effective fashion marketer must also have a high sense of personal style. This is not only a great way to create and maintain a good impression with clients but also a means of winning the confidence of customers and establishing oneself as a fashion authority. This assertive but gentle authority is critical in ensuring one has the 'last word' as shaping the client's eventual buy decision is concerned.

Success in fashion marketing jobs also requires the carrying out of extensive and continuous research on the business environment. In a sense, the fashion marketer serves as a point of market feedback to the fashion house. This is important because at the end of the day, the fashion house is in business and not just involved in design for the sake of it. Since fashion designers cannot afford to operate in a creativity vacuum, the fashion marketer serves as a continuous feeder of information on what is hot and what is not. The business can then use this information to set or alter its overall strategy.

Fashion marketing jobs can be quite exciting for persons inclined towards adventure as they would usually involve extensively travel, attending regional and sometimes global high fashion events that includes inter mingling with the glitterati. This interaction with prominent personalities is an advantage in sometimes unexpected ways because it for instance makes fashion houses provide a respectable allowance for their marketing staff to be able to ‘keep up with the Joneses' as it were.

Anyone intending to secure a fashion marketing job would require a marketing or public relations degree even though a general business related degree might suffice if one has hands-on marketing ability or experience. In addition fashion marketers should be self driven individuals that exhibit strong analytical capability, in order to translate, incorporate and develop current fashion trends into marketing strategy. That way, they will be an important asset to the organization in bettering its performance.
