Fashion Designer Fashion designers create the designs for clothing and accessories in stores around the world. However, few designers become as successful as Armani, Karan or Versace. Most work for mass- market manufacturers, designing basic pieces of clothing. Be honest with yourself about your ability to sketch and your eye for design and detail. The competition is fierce in this field, and you'll need a strong inner drive to succeed. Increase your chances for success by obtaining a two-year or four-year degree in fashion design. Ask your high school guidance counselor for a list of well-known fashion design schools. Expect to show samples of your sketches as part of your application. Take as many marketing and business courses as possible, in addition to design courses. Knowledge of the business end of the fashion industry is vital to your career. Develop a working knowledge of a variety of design-related software programs. Put together a portfolio of your own designs. It must show how creative you are and convince potential employers that you would be an asset to their business. Set up an internship as quickly as possible. You will gain valuable experience, and it might lead to your first job after graduation. Make as many industry connections as you can while you are in school. Include people in design- related fields, such as advertising. Regularly read fashion bibles such as "Women's Wear Daily" and "Vogue" to remain current on trends and future trends.
