The Industry

Considering a career in the exciting world of fashion? If so, you are probably wondering what a professional in the fashion industry does. Essentially, fashion designers create clothes, footwear, and accessories. They also instruct others on how their products should be made, make decisions about patterns and fabrics, and create sketches of designs. Fashion professionals may also be responsible for business-to-business transactions between suppliers and distributors as well as production cycles and marketing to clothing retailers and consumers.

The Career Options

There are many possible career paths that you can take as a fashion designer. Be on the front line of fashion as a production manager where you’re responsible for working with suppliers to get clothing produced at the manufacturing level. Costume designers research period styles and make costumes for movie and TV productions. Fashion merchandisers track and monitor fashion trends and consumer trends, while fashion public relations professionals represent a company’s brand and act as the go-between for a product and a retailer. Like to write? As a fashion journalist, you can write for magazines, e-commerce sites, or trade publications.

The Internship

For young professionals looking for a career in this segment of the industry, fashion internships are a perfect stepping stone. As an intern, you will learn how to first fabricate designs that are appealing to the target audience and then promote the product line with complementing campaigns. Although most designers first sketch their designs by hand, many now also sketch their ideas digitally with computer-aided design (CAD) programs which allow you to see and adjust your work on virtual models. Use the opportunity to get familiar with the types of software commonly used in the fashion industry— Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, Edraw Max, Adobe Photoshop, C-DESIGN Fashion, and Pattern Maker Professional, to name a few.

The Outlooks

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of fashion jobs is expected to grow 3% over the next decade, which is slower than average.
