First let me ask you a question. How important is it to learn swimming before you enter the pool???

How important it is to know current news for a healthy discussion?
If your answer to the above questions is Yes, we should know latest updates, then your question is answered.
Note, that in this fast pace techno savy world, to be in sync with others, we need to be constantly learning and upgrading ourselves. Simply put, earlier mobiles were just for calls and messaging, now it is apart of our life and death, because of various applications that connects us to people in such a short period of time.
We all wish to be a part of the current times, and one major link we have is Fashion whether its concerning clothes or accessories
.We love to keep ourselves updated with the latest trend.
So the answer to your question, is Yes, for you to survive in the market and make a name for yourself, you would have to have a good understanding of the market trend.
This does not mean you need to get certified with every course coming up, but very important is to be observant of the trend and try to be in sync but at the same time being unique.
Of course, if there is a new and latest technology in the market, you would need to get certified by it, but as a designer, very important would be to follow the masses and maintain a survey of what the generation is looking out for.
Hope this answers your doubts.Wish you all the best....
