When I was growing up in the ’90s, one of the first people who made me believe I could work in fashion was Rachel Green. (Yes, the fictional character from Friends.) From my living room in Arizona, I watched as she landed her first job in fashion, as a personal shopper at Bloomingdale’s in New York, and then when she was hired as a manager and eventually executive at Ralph Lauren. Then, there was the position at Louis Vuitton in Paris that she ended up turning down in the season finale. As a kid in Tucson with zero connections to the fashion industry, it made me think that maybe, just maybe, I could one day break my way in as well and rise in the ranks just like Rachel Green did.
