Hi,

Fashion Design is the applied art devoted to the designing of clothing and lifestyle accessories. This art is influnced by cultural and social attitudes and has evolved over time and place. Fashion designing has come a long way from the designer clothes worn by the royalty of the ancient world to the haute couture products of the present.

Fashion Designing is one of the most lucrative, appealing, glamorous, and exciting career options in today's world. If you have a penchant for creativity, style and originality, a career in fashion designing is the one tailor made for you. On one hand, the fashion industry satisfies both the the creative fancies and the materialistic needs of the people. On the other hand, it promises glamour, fame, success and high pay package to the talented people.

However, it is also a demanding career, as fashion designers need to combine their creativity with managerial skills to sustain in this industry. thus, if you can create magic with colours, shapes and designs, then just obtain a professional course to begin a successful career in the alluring world of fashion designing.

Prospects for fashion design graduates are pretty good thanks to the huge and still growing demand for "Designer wear" and the equally outsized quantity of exports.

After successful completion of course, you can remain self employed. Alternatively, several export houses, garment store chains, textile mills, leather companies, boutiques,fashion show organizers, jewellery houses, and media houses recruit professionals interested in fashion designing.
