As the saying goes, ‘Clothes make a gentleman’ (without being gender biased, lets add on ‘and a gentlewoman to it’!), over the years people have become conscious about their looks and one’s outfit is what plays a major role in it (with the right attitude, that is always needed).
Obvious as it seems, fashion designers are sought after greatly by the wealthy and the famous, as they are in the public attention and media focus constantly. A young fashion designer is a very nice term to be referred to but it isn’t as easy as one-two-three to be there.
Fashion designing can be defined as a practical art that involves design of fashion wear, garments, and clothes in general along with other lifestyle accessories.
A good fashion designer is paid heftily and what better than to be getting paid high when young. A good fashion designer needs oodles of talent and creativity coupled with some solid education and opportunities.
Education regarding fashion designing along with talent can make a young designer earn a fortune alongside fame and a crowd of admirers.
Many wannabe young fashion designers assume fashion designing to be a not-so-difficult profession to be in and a lot more young fashion designers neglect the need of a formal education in fashion designing. A fashion institute teaches a young fashion designer (aspirant) the basics of fashion- the clothing, the pattern making, sewing and so on.
Although, this isn’t a must, it enhances a young fashion designer’s knowledge on fashion which can be helpful in the future. It boosts the morale of a designer and gets rid of the feeling of insecurity which many young fashion designers are bugged down with.
Today, young fashion designers are many in numbers and have a lot of opportunities in the world of fashion. New innovative designs, graphics and outfits come up every season. T-shirts, jeans, trousers, shirts, traditional wears, ethnic wears etc from around the world are experimented with to form unique attires unknown to the fashion world before.
Modern fashion designing has two categories, namely ‘haute couture’ and ‘ready to wear’. While ‘haute couture’ refers to the custom made and sewn outfits that is usually done for private clients, ‘ready to wear’ refers to the range of collections which aren’t custom made and which come in standard sizes and fitting.
A young fashion designer needs to have something which makes him/her stand out in the crowd. A young fashion designer can be called a pro, if he/she really re-defines fashion!!!
