Fashion Designing -A glance

India is a country in which many communities co-exist happily sharing their traditions, customs as well as their unique fashion-sense. Almost every community within India has its own style and manner of dressing but it is not uncommon for members of other communities to borrow such style-tips every now and again. Even the ‘sari’ is worn in different styles by members of different communities. But this does not mean that each style is only restricted to members of that community, In fact, there are even professional sari-drapers who cater to one of the latest Indian clothing trends by showing women how to drape their saris in the way that best accentuates its print or embroidery.

# The Work Fashion Design can be divided into three main branches — Garment design, Leather design, Accessory & Jewellery design. Here we will focus on Garment design. While the saying “clothes maketh a man” merits debate, the fact is we no longer wear clothes to keep ourselves covered or warm, but to express our personality and “attitude”. This is where the fashion designer steps in, to help us make the correct fashion statement. Creating a style, using the right fabric, the right cut and a good finish, the designer turns out either a singular creation (one of its kind) that may sell for a king’s ransom, or more usually, outfits that will reach a retail outlet in different sizes and colours. In certain cases, the garment may even be mass-produced for a specific market. Garments include items of regular clothing, generally western style, although there is a growing local market for Indian style designer wear such as salwar-kameez, sherwanis, ghagra-cholis, kurtis and so on. There are four courses of action that you can adopt to launch into the career of your dreams: Lawyers in private practice usually work for long and irregular hours meeting clients, researching and reading about new * Apprenticeship under a flourishing, well-known designer. * Employment in an export house or garment manufacturing unit. * Freelancing for fashion houses and boutiques. * Self-employment, as in opening your boutique or manufacturing unit or an export outfit to showcase your talent. Nothing can compare with the absolute joy when your creation is admired and appreciated for its style and finish. And the high-voltage publicity and applause as you proceed for the curtain call at the end of a stunning show won’t hurt either. Today fashion designers share equal space on Page 3 as models and film stars.
