A huge number of boys and girls imagine themselves to be successful designers, while they do not know how to sew or draw. It's just like imagining yourself as a great artist without being able to play or a famous athlete weighing under 100 kg.
So, in order to become a successful clothing designer, you need to have the following set of qualities:
The first is the ability to draw. Just draw with a pencil! Master the line perfectly. To be able to transfer your fantasies to paper, so that not only you, but also the cutters, would understand your idea.
The second is to be able to sew. You must thoroughly know how and from what parts you can sew a coat or suit. And be able to sew these details so that you get a coat or a suit. Only by knowing how to sew, you will not be in fantasies, but in practice, understand how clothes are designed.
Third, you will have extensive knowledge of the history of costume and the history of painting. Without this knowledge, you will be like a bird without wings.
And fourth - money! Damn money! Without them, you will not be able to launch your clothing line or get promoted. I will not describe here in detail how much money is needed to create my first collection, but please note that almost all Russian brands are created by bored wives or daughters of millionaires. It is clear that for them, who do not know how to put a thread in a needle, talent not visible to the world is working, but only with a powerful sponsor will your talent find application. Without money there will be nothing.
So! Go for it !!!
For a fashionable, successful designer, it is probably more important not to work on any particular thing, for this there is a staff of technical workers, but the creation of new concepts, which will already be used to create new collections, lines of clothes, shoes, cars, furniture, etc. Of course, this requires talent, statistics, knowledge of consumer psychology, and a small advertisement from Buzova. But fashion is back, and many designers take advantage of this, only "modernizing" and adding "chips". This also requires a sense of taste and proportion. And a small ad from Buzova. Or you can dress up Buzov herself in something obscene, and on the basis of this, create new collections. You also need a sense of proportion. And a small advertisement from Buzova.
