As an assistant in the fashion world, you never know what each day will bring (I can vouch for that!). On any given day, you could be assisting at a photo shoot, buried under a mountain of shoes in the fashion closet, or conducting business from your phone as you run around town. But one thing is for sure: There will be a lot of grit and a little glamour. To show you just what we mean, we took to Instagram and found the shots that best capture the day-to-day life of fashion minions—from Jenna Lyons’s longtime assistant to the junior staffers at Vogue.
