Style Editor Madison Russell Gives Insight on Dominating the Fashion Industry and Staying Relevant

Madison Russell is a 25-year-old style editor and dog mom living in the Big Apple. Over the years, Madison has pushed her way up through the ranks and now oversees fashion content at ONE37pm, a digital publication from Gary Vaynerchuk and Gallery Media Group.

Through her content, she has inspired a lot of young individuals and given them the knowledge required to venture into the unforgiving fashion industry.

In this article, Madison shares unique insight into growing and staying relevant in the fashion niche. 

Drawing Inspiration

We all have that one thing that drives us to do remarkable things, you know! That thing that gives us the required motivation or pushes we need to set out on daring adventures. 

Well, Madison’s inspiration to tread the fashion industry came from her mother.

As a child, Madison always watched her mother assemble outfits in front of her full-length mirror. The beautiful colors and designs fascinated Madison. As Madison grew, she signed up for ballet classes and spent most of her time in the theatre. Being surrounded by tutus and Dior gowns nurtured her love for beautiful things. 

“The art of clothing and personal style is captivating.” – Madison

Staying Relevant

The fashion industry, like any other creativity-driven niche, runs on authenticity. Madison explains that consumers are getting smart; they are tired of seeing the same old trend and now prefer uniform dressing and minimalism.

“Today, the industry is going through a funny shift, and the only way to truly carve a name for yourself self in this niche is by being authentic, loving what you do, and feeling comfortable in your clothes.” – Madison

With this in mind, you can conquer the world.

Values

Ethical values are definite rules and virtues we live by and apply in our daily activities to help us succeed at what we do. 

To Madison, the virtue that she looks for is hard work. She shares with us that as an editor, being a people person is essential. 

You’ve got to embrace everyone, work with them and oversee their work activities. Of course, this requires effort. 

Knowing this, Madison has trained herself to focus and put in everything she’s got into her job as an editor. She also possesses an eternal sense of gratitude for the opportunities that have come her way. 

She endlessly strives to do more got her a job at one of the most prestigious digital publications in the world.

Having Fun

When she is off work, Madison loves to walk her dog. To fight stress, she loves long yoga sessions and reading.  

She might not act like it, but Madison is an introvert. She gets her energy from being alone or having one-on-one conversations with people instead of talking in big groups.

Madison values time for meditation, as it helps her release any negative thoughts she might have been holding back.

On a Parting Note…

The fashion industry is one that doesn’t tolerate minor setbacks or lack of creativity. And Madison has seen that for herself. Here are some words of advice from her to anyone just starting in this niche;

“In a world of trends and people telling you what to like, you have to look within yourself and finds what brings you joy. Remember that people’s insecurities make them say and do awful things. It’s not your fault.

Finally, remind yourself how far you’ve come and why you’re passionate about finding your own version of success in the first place. Amidst the late nights and early mornings, keep your heart strong.”
