Q: Is it easy to find a job as a fashion designer in China if you don't speak Chinese?

I am Fashion Designer with experience and a Master in Fashion Design in Italy. I speak English, Italian and Portuguese.
I've lived in some countries, so it would not be difficult for me to move to China. I am currently in Brazil.
I am available to work as anything in the fashion industry.
I have experience as a Visual Merchandiser, Personal Stylista, Secretariat at Armani and Trussardi in Milan.

Would I have a tough time finding work in Shanghai?

Most of the people in the fashion industry in China will most likely know how to speak one of the three languages you mentioned. Since they have to deal with international models and agents communication is a key to their success so it shouldn't be that hard. I know many people that speak at least English. If you ever run across someone who can't  speak one of the languages you mentioned you could always hire a translator or get someone to help you communicate with those that can't communicate with you directly.  blush

whoa almost a decent response there from mattaya.....
He is right in that many people within the fashion industry here in china will speak one of those languages if not more. At the very basic level you might be of use to a company simply because you speak those languages... but that might not be in Shanghai.
As for finding a job, i cant really comment on Shanghai, but here in guangdong where all the textile and shoe factories are, the majority of foreign employees are brought here by their companies, i.e they get the job in their own country and are sent out here to work with developers and designers. You can try to just turn up and look for a job but i think it will be more tough.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
