In the past, a fashion illustrator might have found employment capturing runway looks in real time for a magazine or newspaper. These days, fashion illustrators are working in a range of industries including editorial, advertising, packaging and branding, and special events.

There are many different paths you can take to build your career as a fashion illustrator. Getting started can often be the hardest part. How do you choose the right niche? Build your portfolio? Land your first client? How do you translate small successes into long-term career opportunities?
