In order to identify that you have the right interest and aptitude in the fashion designing field, you will have to do your analysis and ask yourself a number of questions. Below information will help you out how to approach that.

1. How excited you are about the fashion world. Being a fashion designer you will become a part of the fashion and glamour world. For some people it is a matter of real excitement while others it is boring and not at all meaningful. You need to ask yourself where do you stand on this. Are you fascinated about the idea of entering the fashion world. If yes then surely you should go for it.

2. How good you are with your design skills. This is important because you will be working with your designs most of the times. You will have to create new designs and figure out the right combination of colors, clothes and style. You even need to decide the fabric for that. Therefore you should very well know how to do the designing. You are also required to draw the sketches and rough design of the product on the paper before you do the final design on the computer.

3. You need to have strong imagination power so that you can conceive new ideas just by imagining. You cannot afford to copy other people's ideas and style. You need to develop your own style and for that you need to visualize things all the time.

4. You should be able to attend the various fashion events with great excitement and enthusiasm as this is a crucial part of a fashion designer's life.

It can be really tedious to measure your interest and aptitude levels by yourself. Also this method is not very accurate too. Therefore it is advisable to take the psychometric tests that are designed by the psychologists in order to measure your interest and aptitude levels with great accuracy. You can take the test in the homepage of and take the test there based on your education levels. That will solve your confusions regarding your suitability in the fashion designing.
