Careers In Fashion Design - Articles Surfing
As a little girl did you sew all your Barbie doll clothes? Did you have mock fashion shows with your friends? If you did you were of course the fashion show producer. You picked the clothes your friends wore in the show and gave them runway tips. Perhaps you were the style-setter in school always in the latest fashion.
These are just a very few ways that fashion designers start showcasing their abilities in their youth. They are inexplicably attracted to fashion and all it's components. While most of us see a jacket and think "nice jacket", a fashion designer takes it apart bit by bit, breaking it down to it's rawest components of color, cut, fabric, design and ornamentation. They have an intuitive understanding of how it all pulls together. They consider it "fun" and love to "play" with clothing.
One of my favorite designers is Carolina Herrera. At a young age it's said she liked to "play" with clothing. Born into a wealthy family Carolina was surrounded by things of beauty. Her sense of style was instilled at a very young age. She obviously continues to carry the sense of elegance that surrounded her in her youth into her life and her fashion design.
Her fashion designs are always timeless and classic. Carolina learned about fashion at an early age from her mother and other glorious women around her. She was surrounded by couture fashion growing up and attended her first fashion show at the age of 13.
From her mother Carolina learned that less is more, and this is what gives her fashion designs an aura of mystery and sensuality. Carolina Herrera's fashion designs speak in a whisper and you know exactly what they're saying.
Although most of us don't grow up in a fairy tale world like Carolina, if you have a real talent and a desire to join in the fashion world there are many opportunities available. An education is essential to enter the world of fashion design.
