Many thanks for choosing CareerGuide and writing to us. I am impressed with your question about successful fashion designers and what made these people success. It is also good to look at people who have achieved in their careers as a role model. It could personally inspire and mentor you towards career success. I can give you a brief idea about one of the world famous fashion designers from India and what made him successful.

Bollywood industry is a key factor for making this fashion designing industry growing and glowing. The key element for fashion designers is to use people from the Bollywood industry to better market themselves and establish their careers. So, you could definitely say that using appropriate market to pitch in your skills is essential for success and fashion designers use Bollywood market to pitch in their success. Not every designer can access bollywood to market their designs. Very few could do and creativity skills in their work is highly essential to approach bollywood. You can certainly be off the bollywood market and still produce your designs. You can set up your own designing studios and attract common people. But all these need 'creativity' and 'entrepreneurial' skills in you. You could find this attribute common with every fashion designer working in India. As said, not every fashion designer can easily use Bollywood actress to market their products. It takes a long way to come to that position in their career. As a new entrant, they could have struggled to position themselves but finding and using the appropriate strategy made them successful. I can better explain with the an example of a successful personality from India.

As said earlier fashion designers need to enter the right market and need the right people to get exposure in their market. They should also find a space in the market where they think not many designers have entered. Doing the same products that everybody does will not help a fashion designer to be successful. They should be creative to use existent products more attractive. Also, not every dress they design can suit all personalities. They need to find the right actor/actress suitable for the dress they have designed.One of the popular designers from India is Sabyasachi Mukherjee. He entered the fashion designing industry and found a space in the 'saree' sector. He is a fashion designer who added a new dimension and more forms of creativity to saree. Many fashion designers never targeted saree but they explored other garments. Sabyasachi Mukherjee gave a new perspective to saree designing and today that alone gave him a popular identity.This is the tip: Find areas that needs creativity and has lots of space to enter into the market. Find the right people to market your product. Sabyasachi utilized actress Vidya Balan to market most of the sarees he designed. Later actress like Rani Mukherjee, Aishwarya Rai, Sonakshi Sinha also tagged alongto market his sarees.

There are other famous designers like Neeta Lulla, Manish Malhotra, Ritu Beri, Rohit Bal, Anita Dongre, Ritu Kumar, Rohit Verma are established fashion designers from India. They have their expertise with one specific garment and fabric. But all have creativity, networking, entrepreneurial skills in common.

Please write back if you need further information. Happy to help.

Good luck.
