    Become a student of the fashion show game. If you don’t know a red-soled Louboutin from a Louis Vuitton $2200 Spicy sandal, you need a crash course on shoe designers and the fashion industry. Before you imagine yourself producing fashion shows for rock stars, socialites, fashion editors and couture collectors, you need an eye for fashion and a fashion education filled with important and critically-acclaimed designer names… and knowledge of their clothing and accessories.

  2. 2

    Take a few fashion courses. Enroll at your local fashion school for training as a fashion show producer. If you cannot travel to New York to enroll at Parsons or the Fashion Institute of Technology, take classes at your local trade school for fashion industry knowledge. A few sewing classes, fashion-inspired art classes and basic fashion illustration courses will help you take your career as a fashion show producer to the next level.

  3. 3

    Become an assistant to the fashion show producer. The path to fashion show production varies: You could have a background in public relations or spent time as a former high-fashion model. Whatever the career path you choose to become a fashion show producer get an internship with a notable fashion show production company to learn the fashion ropes.
