Fashion designers work on the design of clothing and fashion ranges. They typically specialise in one area of design, such as sportswear, children's wear, footwear or accessories. Depending on their level of responsibility and the company they work for, designers may work to their own brief or be given a brief to work towards, with specifications relating to colour, fabric and budget. Developments in technology mean that a design can be on sale as a finished product in the high street within six weeks.
Fashion designers are generally required to hold undergraduate degrees in fashion design. Those who intend on owning their own design firms or shops may benefit from earning a combined degree in fashion design and marketing or another business-related subject. Aspiring fashion designers seeking degree programs may consult with the National Association of Schools of Art and Design, the nationally recognized accrediting organization for design schools.
