Dear Friend,




Let me start with the saying that, "How Can you sell when you don't know what to sell??




Similarly, in your case it is very much important as well as needed to have an extraordinary communication skills. You are a part of an industry where works comes later but the talk come first and based on the conversation you are either going to have or you are having or you already had, you will get the work, if you can not convince them that you are smart enough to do their job, they will not prefer to work with you and the work will go to some other fashion designer.




There is a big difference between a fashionable person and a fashion designer, because the first one fashionable person will wear all those fancy clothes and will look different and he/she doesn't need to either answer someone about the fashion or vica versa. While Fashion designer will have speak to the client in order to get the information out of their head so that you can make/stitch what exactly they want from you. Until and unless you don't speak or talk with the customers they will not be interested in working with you and if they are then you will not be able to understand what they really want from you. There are lot of communication requires in your field. Also the fashion is the word/market/world exists mainly for the upper middle class and generally this class people are well educated as well as well aware about the latest fashion trend in the market and therefore in order to be different from the cloud they will push your skills up to the limit for you to make something different for them and it can only be done if you have a strong communication skills. It is not required neither it is necessary that the communication has to be in English, it can be in any of the language but the skills has to be there.




Further sometimes your communication skills makes a lot difference by making your presence feel that the person has skills.




I wish you all the very best and good luck for your future.




Thanks,


Ravi
