Why major compaines want young stars as a Creative Director or Brand Ambassador


It has become apparent Creative Directors seem to be the backbone of the fashion industry now a days. If you are 25-33 years old your in luck. This seems to be the age range brands are chasing to lead their brand in a new direction. Nike, Under Armour, Adidas & Carven has already set the trend. Contrary to belief extensive experience means zero now a days. These companies are taking risk and have a win now mentality. What I mean is if you have what they want your in luck. My continued desire to one day be a Brand Ambassador begins with me studying what these super stars have at such a young age and follow in their foot steps. As I embark on my new journey to enter new worlds I'm eager to become the young super star a brand is looking for. So Creative Director or Brand Ambassador I have 3 years left to get hired, Lol. (Crosses fingers) 

Brands I would like to be a Brand Ambassador for:

  • Fila
  • Ace of Spades
  • Under Armour
  • Atrium (I feel they can expand)
  • Guess (I love the jeans)
  • Gatorade
  • Zara (I got ideas  Galicia Arteixo)

Side Note for young stars like myself:

Recently I read an article about a ambitious aspiring radio host. They wanted to work for a radio show in NYC but they had no openings in NYC. But they did have a opening in Florida. So without even having a job yet they packed up and moved to Florida. They walked into the radio station asking what can I do to work here. Of course they had nothing so it was a grind but they did not give up. They went back a week later and inquired about a recent opening.(God's work) Long story short they ended up getting a job and since then have worked at major companies such as Disney,MTV,17 magazine & much more. After reading that I had to revamp my approach on achieving my goals. Just last night I asked myself who would I work for and why. So that's how the above list came about.

Check out this article below by Fashionista.com about two new Creative Directors:




After five months of speculation — during which the media settled on Alexis Martial of Iceberg as the leading candidate — Carven announced Monday that both Martial, a ready-to-wear designer, and Adrien Caillaudaud, an accessories designer, have been appointed artistic directors of its womenswear division.

Martial, 29, got his career start at Givenchy in 2007, working on knitwear for both the ready-to-wear and haute couture lines; in 2012, he was named creative director of Paco Rabanne, before decamping to Iceberg for a parallel role less than a year later.

Caillaudaud and his career are less well known. According to WWD, he and Martial met at the Atelier Chardon Savard fashion school in Paris, and his time overlapped with Martial's at Givenchy, where he was working on shoes and accessories until very recently. Prior to Givenchy, Caillaudaud worked at Marc Jacobs.

It's unusual, of course, for a fashion label of any size to have two artistic directors at the creative lead — particularly two directors who are not (so far as we are aware) romantically linked, or who did not found the label together as friends and design partners. Clearly their talents — Martial in womenswear, Caillaudaud in accessories — are diverse and complimentary.

Though it has not had an artistic director since November, Carven will present during Paris Fashion Week on Thursday. The label's previous artistic director, Guillaume Henry, will show his first collection for his new house, Nina Ricci, on Saturday.
