Hi Amarjeet,

The answer to your question lies in the question itself. To be fashion designer, you need to be qualified in Fashion designing itself.

As such to be successful, you need to have good knowledge about

  • The Fabric and its texture
  • The threads and design used
  • Most importantly test in Fashion world

As such, you can pursue either

  • Diploma
  • Certificate
  • Degree course

Pursuing certificate will only help you understand your skills in this field. Based on that you can decide if you wish to pursue this course. after pursuing certificate, you can start your own about ique in your own locality, but to be in the Industry, either Diploma or degree is essential.

Diploma can be pursued after 12th, even degree can be pursued after 12th, but only after clearing an entrance exam.

Please note that, few institutes offer Graduation course, in the an me of Diploma, but it is Graduation course, 4 years full time.

Entrance exam includes questions related to Imagination skills, visualizing ability and your drawing skills as well. You may find samples of the papers on the net. Also for the interview, if you could create portfolio, it would be helpful to clear the interview as well as to land job in the future.

As such when you enter the industry, an experience with top profession ls may add value to your profession l career in the future.

You can also start as an entrepreneur

Hope this was helpful

Wish you good luck...
