Fashion is all about setting your own style statement and individual identity.  No matter what people think, fashion is all about setting your own trends and fads. This is where you need to be aware of the current styles and trends in the consumer market. You spend a lot of money enrolling at a fashion school so there has to be something you will get out of it.

Meeting deadlines

As a fashion designer, creating your own unique design is the biggest challenge of all.  Meeting deadlines amidst the pressure of work is something which will bring out the best in you. Once you are working at creating beautiful apparel for the models and actresses for ramp walks or fashion shows, meeting deadlines is something you would learn yourself. Time management is the biggest objective for a fashion designer because of the current work is not ready, future assignments will also bog you down.

Unique innovation is the order of the day

You may be well trained. But thinking out of the box designs and creating innovative patterns is something you need to be equally adept at to beat the competition. The more unique your work is, the more in demand your designs would be.

Be confident

No matter how well trained and unique your ideas may be, a lot of superb designs go down the drain. Because of lack of confidence, you need to be confident and present your ideas in a very sure way. The color, styling, fabrics may be in perfect co-ordination but you may make a minor mistake. Don’t let it affect your perfect work.  Love your work, be confident and let others also appreciate you.

Hard work

Fashion designing is all about working hard, clutching at your coffee cup, working overtime and pulling all night to meet assignments. So once you are a graduate from a fashion school, welcome aboard!
