Why Study Fashion Design?

For some, careers in fashion design are all about the glitz and glamour. For others, it’s about self-expression and the opportunity to express total creative freedom. In both instances, a career as a fashion designer can be rewarding in more ways than one. As with most creative industries, getting started in fashion design means finding a way to get that initial ‘foot in the door’. Creativity and inspiration are important, but so too is a robust understanding of the way the industry works. If you expect to be taken seriously as a fashion designer, you need to demonstrate your commitment to influencers and decisionmakers. Career opportunities are wide open, but this is a seriously competitive field where only the strongest and most talented survive.
