Fashion was a word I did not even know existed. So when I was asked to give a talk at an event on the subject, I jumped at the chance. As it turns out, many of my friends are in fashion and I would like to share some things they have done to become a fashion designer. They say that if you don’t know where to start, then you can always look to the internet for advice. Here are some tips to help inspire you and get you started on the right path.
First, ask yourself this question: What do I do now? So often, I’ve heard people ask me: what am I wearing? What is fashion about? Is this what fashion really is all about? Am I acting on a track laid forward by ideology or merely following a course that has been bound to derail before long? These are questions to ask yourself when asking yourself these questions.
Second, figure out what it is that you want to do with your life. Why are you interested in fashion? What kind of person do you want to be? Are you a “doer” or a “dreamer”? Once you answer this question, the next question that follows will seem less daunting.
Third, take a look at yourself in the mirror. It’s a good idea to get a snapshot before you start to feel your way out in fashion. What does your hair look like? Do you think you will need a haircut? Do you want to go all out for the runway? Is it just one or a combination of the two? Take a look at yourself and decide what sort of person you would like to be.
Finally, know your limitations. If you want to design your own clothing or design a clothing line, make sure you know where you are going and what you can accomplish in such a short period of time. If you want to work as a freelance designer, take a look at the world of freelancing as a career before jumping into the water.
You should definitely take the time to consider a new career. The money is certainly worth it is something you can get into while still enjoying your life.
A good place to start is the internet. There are a lot of websites that offer information on this subject.
Now that you know the things you want to know, it’s time to take action. Take a look at the resources I mentioned above and see what steps will help get you started on your new career.
