As glamorous as they may look, fashion jobs aren’t exactly known for being massively lucrative, especially for those early on in their careers. That said, some fields within the fashion industry pay better than others.

According to our latest annual Fashionista Salary Survey Report, people working in retail (including buying and sales) had the highest distribution of $100k+ salaries by a significant margin, followed by PR. You can see the full distribution of six-figure fashion salaries in the graphic below.

Given today’s economic uncertainties, salary transparency feels more important than ever. Whether you’re wondering what your dream fashion job typically pays, what other people in your same position make on average or how compensation fluctuates with seniority or gender, Fashionista’s annual salary report is here to help.
