fashion designers know how to design garments and are aware of all the processes which go into the assembling of a garment.



They have to visualize the design and style of garment keeping in mind the material to be used, the occasion when it will be worn, the technique of its construction and the scale in which it is to be produced.



Not all designers create original models or launch a new line which shakes the fashion world. Most of them spend their time and talent in translating famous country's original ideas and adapting old styles to suit the latest year's mood so as to produce clothes which can be more commonly or and more easily manufactured.



The work of designer always involves a lot of tasks like some of the designers spend most of their time actually creating and sketching brand new ideas ,styles and trends. The majority of them specialize in design which are an amalgamation and adaptation of ideas from various sources.



They use their creative ability combined with technical expertise to incorporate fashion trends and their firm special style into the type of garments which sell best in a given type of market within a given price range.



Some other duties include making detailed working drawings of one's own or someone' else designs, cutting sample garments, draping them and pinning them upon on address stand or a model and making the necessary adjustments to improve appearance or facilitate manufacture. Accessory designers design the type of market keeping in mind the type of market , cost of manufacture and anesthetic appeal.



Certain fashion designers with a flair for writing as well join newspapers, magazines, websites and other media outlets as writers or editors. . Fashion illustrators and stylists work for print magazines , television and film producers , catalogs or online retailers.
