Want to be a fashion designer?

A fashion designer conceives garment combinations of line, proportion, color, and texture. While sewing and pattern-making skills are beneficial, they are not a pre-requisite of successful fashion design. Most fashion designers are formally trained or apprenticed.

Designing is one of the most important aspects of the fashion world. In fact, everything revolves around designs. But it's no easy cakewalk. It's a hard grind and you need a lot of stamina to sustain in the long run. Do you feel it's right up your sleeve? If yes, then read on....

You need to have a feel for textures and a flair for styles. Colours and combinations should fascinate you. Your mind's eye should be able to put it all together before you start on a project.

An ability to sketch and draw is of immense help. You need a keen eye for detail. So sharpen your powers of observation.

Unless you have terrific talent and the right contacts, don't venture out by yourself. You're always better off working as a trainee under some designer for a while. You'll pick up valuable pointers. Be willing to learn from them.

Don't expect to hit gold with your first few designs. Your enthusiasm shouldn't wane with rejects. Keep yourself motivated and continue to work hard.

Don't be afraid to experiment with colours and designs. Give your creativity free rein.

Learn to handle people. Customers, tailors, suppliers may each have their own idiosyncrasies. It's important you cope without losing your cool.

Find a real good tailor. Don't compromise on this issue. Only a good karigar can make your dreams come true. Build up a rapport with him/her. It's important you understand each other. You should be able to discuss the requirements and the possibilities of each design.

Always have a variety of designs. Especially if you are going to hold an exhibition for your potential customers, you need to show off your varied styles. The styles should be market friendly.

Start off with affordable styles. It's almost impossible for a newcomer to succeed with extravagant price tags.

Get to know the nitty-gritties of merchandising. There is a lot more to it than meets the eye.

Learn to enjoy your job. If you have an eye only on the rewards, it will be a relentless grind for you.
