Career Code: The Secret to Being Your Own Boss in the Fashion World

In honor of Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power’s upcoming book, The Career Code: Must-Know Rules for a Strategic, Stylish, and Self-Made Career ($17), we’re kicking off an interview series featuring 17 questions (in honor of the book’s 17 chapters) about the work lives of the most inspirational female leaders in the fashion industry. So far, we’ve tapped Rebecca Minkoff, Emily & Meritt, Rachel Zoe, and more. Up next? Candice Lake.

It’s not every day you get the chance to interview someone who’s both modeled and photographed for some of the biggest fashion houses in the world (think Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Jimmy Choo). So you can imagine our excitement when we got the Australian-born blogger, model, photographer—you’ll soon read about how the list goes on—to share her secrets to managing life as a triple threat, how she started out in the fashion field, what she wore to her first job interview, and more.

Scroll through to read about how she got to doing it all, and her amazing advice for anyone trying to follow in her footsteps.
