Yes doubt. If you want to work in PR or fashion, a business degree is preferable and it also allows for more flexibility were you to decide differently laterNo doubt you will need to study some kind of journalism/professional communications degree.
I'll appropriate two of my friends for case studies:
Girl A is Danish, went to London to study marketing at London College of Fashion while working part time at that department store which isn't Harrod's throughout her course. She now does international PR for one of the major shoe brands (think Gianvito Rossi, not Birman or Schutz).
Girl B went to Georgetown for organisational studies while working for a contemporary prized boutique chain. She also completed an internship with a major auction house. She went on to write (and then edit) for a Condé Nast publication and is now in online retail.
Both girls come from extremely well connected families without which I highly doubt either of them would have landed the same jobs so shortly out of college. Both girls also come from minted families without which they wouldn't have been able to survive on fashion industry salaries.
If you have done any research at all you would probably already have stumbled upon this video, but I'll attach it just in case:
