My guest is Designer and Head of Fashion at the Estonian Academy of Arts, Piret Puppart.
Piret is great, I have known her for years now when she was working in industry and a year or two ago I also taught a course at the Academy after she invited me.
I really wanted to record this episode because her job is similar to mine in one way but on the other hand, the fashion industry is so different and seemingly crazy to me. Intense schedules, last minute deadlines and working with a large supporting staff are all part of it. We talk about the things a young fashion designer can do to help themselves and the sort of attitude you need to have to get somewhere (spoiler alert: it's a truck ton of work)
