Fashion Marketing Salary Guide

Thinking about a career in fashion marketing? You’re probably also wondering what your earning potential might be in this field. The questions what is the average fashion marketing salary? and how much does a fashion marketer make? are answered here.

 

How Much Does a Fashion Marketer Make?

To answer your fashion marketing salary questions, we’ve compiled data from several trusted third party sources and we also include some LIM-specific salary information from a survey of our 2016 graduating class. Fashion marketing salary averages vary depending on things such as experience, company size, location, and duties. It can be difficult to pinpoint marketers in the fashion industry in particular, since marketing job titles and marketing salary data points aren’t typically fashion-specific. That said, we’ve done our best to give you a broad view of the salary possibilities as you consider your future in this field. Check back, since we will update this guide as new or more accurate information is available.

 

Fashion Marketing Salary Averages

Fashion marketing isn’t typically a title, so we can’t give national salary averages that are specific to the fashion industry. However, we can give salary averages for several job titles that would be relevant to a graduate with a fashion marketing degree. Below you’ll see a compilation of a few different marketing titles and the average salaries reported by third party sources.
