Helping you find a career in the fashion designer industry
Fashion designers need to have excellent knowledge of latest trends. Their role is to design set wardrobes for feature films or fashion ranges for the market.
There are different types of fashion designers; those working for high street fashion will need to have experience in buying fabrics, sourcing manufacturing and being up to date with the latest trends. High end fashion designers, known as ‘haute couture', tend to spend more time on their collections. They usually produce one-off costumes for fashion shows (like Victoria Secret where the average wing takes hundreds of hours to complete).
Fashion designers usually work for high-street brands, haute couture labels or have their own businesses.
