a career in dance
Week after week, you guys submit AMAZING + inspiring comments on the blog and in ‘Help Us Design’. Many of you have expressed how much you love to dance and how you want dance to be a part of your life forever.
And it made us wonder: do you know about all of the dream jobs that are out there that involve your love for dance?!
For example,…did you know you could be a Product Stylist for ivivva!?! If you love fashion, creativity, dance, and story-telling, you would be PERFECT for this exciting job.
Meet Alicia – former dancer – and our very own ivivva Product Stylist!
Alicia is a super important member of the ivivva creative team as she styles all of the ivivva outfits for the photoshoots and videos and then works closely to help develop all of the creative pieces.
We asked her 3 questions to help YOU figure out if this might be something you want to do one day:
1. Alicia, what are 3 things you do in your job now:
Well, part of my job is to be a talent scout – I discover and select the amazingly talented dancers that are featured in our campaigns. Then I am the stylist for all of our photo shoots – this means that I work closely with the dancers, choose what they wear and help make sure our awesome product shines in the photography! Also, as a member of the creative team, I help create the stories we tell through all of our online channels. Every day is different – and so much fun!
2. What did you like when you were a teenager that is similar to what you do in your job now?
I have always been inspired by fashion, art and design. When I was 14 I would cut out pictures from magazines and create giant inspiration collages on my bedroom wall.
3. What do you think makes you good at your job?
My background as a dancer allows me to draw inspiration from my own experiences. I know what it is like because I have been there.
Thank you so much Alicia! Before you go, we have to ask: why do you LOVE your job?
I love my job because it combines my two first loves: dance and fashion!
