How to be a fashion designer

Being a fashion designer is and always will be a dream for many. I remember wanting to be a fashion designer when I was a young girl. I dreamt about designing various fashion collections but I never got into it. The idea was fun but I didn’t have the right skills or passion needed to follow it through. So the fashion designer dream died a natural death. I know many fashion designers personally and I know how difficult it can be to stand out in the saturated industry. It is almost like blogging, you have to bring your creativity to the table, it has to be different from anything else out there, or the competition will bury your fashion designing dream quickly.

How to be a fashion designer

If you have your mind set on being a fashion designer, here are some tips I got from a few successful fashion designers, they may work for you –

 

Develop your creative skills

If you don’t have any, fashion designing may not be the right job for you. For you to become a successful fashion designer, you need to have a good eye for colour, shape and design. Some are naturally good at these things, while others may have to work a little harder to develop their skills. Going for a fashion course or apprenticeship may help you acquire the skills needed to excel in fashion designing.

 

Build your portfolio

The best way to learn is to keep practising. Building a portfolio while you work on developing your fashion designing skills is a great idea. As we all know, practice makes perfect, and developing your portfolio is one way of practising. It also allows you show prospective employers or clients what you are capable of creating.

 

Choose a niche

The best way to stand out in the saturated world of fashion designing is to choose a niche, especially in the early days. This allows you make a name for yourself in a niche. It is faster to grow when you choose a niche. You could play around with a few niches until you find your sweet spot! Some fashion designers choose to focus on womenswear only, others pick swimwear or menswear, the choice is yours.

 

Make the most of social media

Social media is one way to promote your creative designs so make the most of them. Instagram is a great platform to start on as it is very visual. You could set up a YouTube channel as well to promote your work even more. The sky is only the beginning.

Planning Your Future: Let The Degree Decide

*Collaborative post.

Trying to plan your future can seem like a huge responsibility. However, it doesn’t have to be something that stresses you out. Instead, you can let your choice of degree decide for you…

 

Something You Enjoy

 To start with, it could be that you just want to do a degree that you know you’d enjoy. Sure you might know that you can study medicine and get a great job that pays well – but what if you don’t enjoy the sciences? If you know you’re more creative, then pick a topic that you know you’ll enjoy for the duration of four years.

 

Something With Prospects

 Or maybe you want to know that you can finish your degree and get an internship that will fast track you for the career that you want? Maybe as a lawyer or a journalist, you may find that studying the degree in the exact subject itself will help you to make sure you can land the fellowship that you want after graduation.

 

Something That Earns Well

 Finally, you may find that you want to study something that you know will help you to earn a good salary in the future. As you can see from the infographic below, there are a range of degree subjects that could allow you to go on to make a healthy salary in the future. Some examples include a Financial Analyst with $86,310 or a Marketing Manager at $115,750. Just take a look below for further options.
