2. Enhance knowledge and skills: There are various courses in the field of fashion designing, management and entrepreneurship. You may pursue most relevant course for your professional development.

Once you take decision to go for fashion designing, based on your current education status, you can pursue graduation or post graduation. If can study upto doctorate level (PhD).

If you have experience working in the fashion industry and want to become entrepreneur then you can do post graduate diploma either in fashion designing or entrepreneurship from UGC recognized institutions/colleges.

3. Start working in the fashion designing: Once you have knowledge and skills for the fashion designing, you can work in the same industry. Your work experience will help you further sharpen your knowledge and skills.
