Four Ways to Restart Your Fashion Career

April 14, 2024 - April 14, 2024   

A career in fashion is something that many people dream of. It’s a fast-paced and often glamorous world filled with stunning designs, runway shows, and a chance to shape the direction that fashion is heading. So, what happens if your career in fashion was suddenly cut short due to issues out of your control, or more specifically – negligence on someone else’s part? Medical negligence isn’t something people tend to know much about or even talk about until it happens to them of course.

Whether it is a misdiagnosis, a medical accident, medical malpractice, or some other preventable issue medical negligence can be devastating to your career and your own personal health. Here we’ll take a look at four ways you can restart your fashion career after an enforced break.

Hire an Attorney and Claim Compensation

The first thing you need to think about is your health and well-being, but as soon as you are stabilized it’s important to start thinking about how your finances will be affected now and in the future. Any sort of medical condition whether it be short-term or long-term is going to cost you money in care and lost wages. This is exactly why it’s wise to speak to an expert and claim compensation.

Lawyers such as those at www.the-medical-negligence-experts.co.uk can discuss with you what a medical negligence claim is, what constitutes filing one, what kind of compensation you can ask for and expect, and then they will get to work for you. Because this is a very complex area of the law, it’s not something you want to give a go on your own without the help of a lawyer.

Compensation is meant to make recovery and moving forward easier on you financially and mentally so that you can take the time you need.

Stay in Contact with Your Network

As soon as you are able to, it’s also a good idea to touch base with your co-workers/boss and contacts in your industry. Stay in contact with them, let them know your break from the job wasn’t planned or wanted, and share with them your plans to return as soon as it’s possible. Keeping yourself in the loop will make you feel as though you’re still part of things, plus it will keep you updated on all the things you need to be aware of.

Challenge Yourself to Keep Up with Trends and Stay Artistic

During your recovery process, it’s also important to stay up to date on where the trends are heading, what top designers are releasing, and stay artistic yourself. Sure, you aren’t actually working, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go ahead with many of the motions on your own. This will make transitioning back into the workforce smoother for you.

Make Sure You are Ready Physically & Mentally

Finally, you want to get the all-clear from your doctor that you are physically ready to head back to work. You don’t want any setbacks in your recovery, so returning to work before you are ready is never a good idea.

Fashion-Enter Ltd (FEL) takes mental health and wellbeing of all their learners and clients as upmost importance. Having worked for the London Development Agency previously from 2001-2006 FEL understands how lonely it can be for new start-up brands but also for learners that may have lost their way.

This is why it’s important to have an open report always and FEL supports in many ways including personal skills such as effective communication and listening skills, employability skills such as CV writing, presentation skills and negotiation skills, keeping physical and mental health considerations at the forefront of importance. Hence the use of Eric Gilston’s important mental health and wellbeing seminars are encouraged by all, along with safeguarding, equality and diversity, and finally ensuring that Prevent is embedded into lives as well as British Values.

There are many seminars and workshops that have been built up thanks to an extensive survey that takes place regularly with clients, employers and learners.

As FEL’s CEO Jenny Holloway commented: “Life is incredibly precious and it’s amazing how time flies. We may live on this earth at best 80-years and hopefully with all our faculties in place. FEL prides itself on making sure that the core of the business undertakes social “good” for the benefit of all our clients and learners!”
