Inside this Book – But not me. My walls were plastered with high-fashion magazine spreads. It was 1988 and Vogue had just gotten a new editor in chief, a British import named Anna Wintour who had new ideas for the magazine. Vogue’s covers, for example, had featured tightly cropped photos for years. Anna’s first cover featured a half-body shot of Israeli model Michaela Bercu dressed in a Christian Lacroix haute couture top paired with—drumroll, please—Guess jeans. That cover was groundbreaking—not only for the way Anna let the reader see more of the model, but for how couture was paired with off-the-rack clothing. It was just unheard of at the time. The genius behind that breakthrough marriage of high-low styling was Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, a French fashion editor whose love for color, accessories and eccentric styling made for a very creative and inspiring bedroom wall. That cover was the focal point of my bedroom door for months. For me, fashion was what life should be like, just amplified. A world worth diving into and living in, albeit through images. I spent years sitting on my bed, doing homework and glancing up at those fashion-plastered walls. But the joke was that I never once gave even a single thought as to how a magazine was created. As far as I was concerned, all of those issues made their way to the newsstand and onto my walls like magic. Fashion wasn’t a career option—if only because I didn’t know any better and had no one to guide me. Because I had always liked and done well in science and my father was a reputable dentist with his own practice, I decided to study to become a doctor. I was good with my hands, so my love of art sparked a more specific interest in plastic surgery—a specialty that, in my mind, combined the best of both worlds, beauty and science.
Inside this book –Leave Your Mark PDF Book by Aliza Licht – I knew that I was doing things far beyond assistant level, and I thought that maybe that meant I should be paid beyond assistant level. Even though I had never asked for a promotion before—and really didn’t know quite how to do it—I decided it was time to ask. First I broached the topic with Elizabeth. She was fully supportive of the idea, so upon her recommendation I made an appointment with Heather to discuss it. Heather was always running to and from, and I knew she didn’t have a lot of patience for small talk. So when I sat down with her, I got right to the point. “Heather, I’m so happy at Atelier. Elizabeth is a fantastic boss who encourages me to take on so much, but I believe that the work I do is beyond assistant level; I know that I could handle even more. Would you consider making me an associate editor?” Silence. Heather stared at me with piercing eyes and then said, “Aliza, you are very lucky to be getting such vast experience, it’s not a given. It is, however, your job to take on as much as you can. You are not at associate level, and I think you should keep your focus on your current position. I have a call I need to make now.” Then Heather turned her attention away from me and picked up the phone. I went back to my cubicle feeling totally defeated. I didn’t know if my pitch was bad or if I had just done it too soon, so I went to consult Elizabeth. “Do you think I did something wrong?” I asked. “I hope I didn’t,” I continued on.
