Hi,


Greeting's for the day!!!

Fashion design is applied art devoted to the designing of clothes and lifestyle accessories. This art is influenced 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.
