Why It’s So Hard for Assistant Designers to Become Fashion Stars. Over the past decade, many of New York’s most lauded designers — like Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Zac Posen — launched their labels straight out of fashion school, with no more than a few internships as experience.

But the rise to fashion stardom isn’t usually so quick — even when it looks like it is. Oprah Winfrey backed Prabal Gurung before his first collection at NYFW in February 2009 even debuted, but Gurung worked under others for seven years, first at Cynthia Rowley then at Bill Blass, before launching his own line. Joseph Altuzarra's first runway show that same fall was attended by his friend and muse Carine Roitfeld. Altuzarra, who received no formal education in design, had been first assistant to Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci and an apprentice to one of the industry’s best pattern-makers, former Rochas atelier head Nicolas Caïto.

Still, these are the exceptions. Such recognition is not encouraged. But it’s not always about PR and politics. Andre Leon Talley: 'There Are Ceilings That I Have Not Broken That I Should Have Broken' "Yes, You Can Make It In Fashion" is a new HuffPost Style series that profiles men and women across every area of the fashion industry and explores how they rose to the top, how they thrive and practical advice they have for young people trying to break into their world. Very few people have a resume that can rival that of Andre Leon Talley. Born in North Carolina, the 65-year-old fashion pundit has worked closely with Andy Warhol at Interview Magazine, Diana Vreeland at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Anna Wintour at Vogue -- so you could say he has the most impressive list of mentors in the biz.

For a man with a personality that is larger than life and a longgggg list of accomplishments -- among other things, he has written books, served as a judge on "America's Next Top Model," hosted an Oscars show and received an honorary Doctorate of Humanities from Savannah College of Art and Design -- he is one of the warmest, most impassioned people we have ever met.
