10 Perks of dating a fashion girl

Fashion Girl: A fashion photographer, model, journalist, enthusiast,  blogger etc. 

A shallow, vain and self-important bimbo who can only tell you the difference between a real and fake Prada, and doesn’t seem to know anything that requires a certain amount of intelligence. That’s a fashion girl right? 

Wrong. There seems to be a misconception and a reasonable amount of undermining when it comes to being a fashion girl. People think that because we’re in such a frivolous industry, there’s really nothing great about dating one of us, except goodie bags and great Instagram content. So I decided to line-up a number of perks of dating a fashion girl. It’s not all champagne and stilettos. 

1.      Firstly, you know that feeling when you get to a fashion show and the tickets are all out and you have to wait for stand by tickets? Yeah we don’t either, nor do our boyfriends. And would you like to know why? It’s because we’re fashion girls.  Free entry just because you’re a blogger, life doesn’t get any better. Complimentary champagne anyone? 

2.      You as the boyfriend, are arguably the most stylish of your friends, which is a given. Hence the fact that you’re dating a fashion girl.
3.      You get to meet and network with some very influential people.  Trust, those after parties and pre-parties are worth it.
4.      You never have to worry about your girlfriend looking presentable to meet your boss, friends or family. Trust me; every fashion girl always looks flawless. Easy elegance is our number one rule. We woke up like dis.

5.      Fashion girls are actually way smarter than a lot of people think. All those dinner parties, launches, fashion shows and glob trotting requires of us to be a jack-of-all-trades. You never know whom you’ll sit next to. We have to be socialites, linguistics, philanthropists and sometimes even politicians. There’s just no escaping the latter. We’re the type of girls who know a little bit about every subject under the sun. So with the knowledge we have, we get to educate you too.  
6.      Your vocabulary becomes immensely wider. You also learn a little bit of French and Italian in the process.  Yves Saint Laurent, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Roberto Cavali...
7.      FREE STUFF. Honestly, as if not getting free entry wasn’t enough, you get a goodie bag too? How lush.

8.      One of the best perks is probably the fact that a lot of people know who your girlfriend is. Unless she’s the type of bloggers who’s ‘blog’ looks like it was put together using Microsoft Paint.
9.      If you’re also a creative, let’s say, a photographer or artist, your girlfriend can help you get gigs you can play at, models to use for your shoots and call in favours all over. Need I say more?
10.  Lastly, fashion girls are divas, and as BeyoncĂ© once said; ‘a diva is a female version of a hustler’. Fashion girls are hustlers.  As you know, in fashion, the one day you’re in, the next you’re out. Yet, they’re always on the in.
