how would you describe fashion design career. do you like it? and what are the pros and cons
Ummm well I haven’t really experienced a career first hand yet because I’m still a student, but I will still attempt to answer this…
I love the fashion industry because it is always changing and evolving. There is never a dull day in fashion, and you can take inspiration from anything and everything. One of the most fulfilling things about fashion design is watching a sketch that was developed in a matter of minutes, eventually being brought to life through fabrics and construction. And I would imagine that having a client who loves your work is one of the best feelings in the world.
You can’t really choose fashion design as just a career choice; fashion has to be a lifestyle. If you don’t completely emerse yourself in the fashion world, there is no way you can get through it. Even in my course, it is a common trend that most people who do fashion just because they can or because it is something they enjoy a lot but don’t love, often end up struggling through or even dropping out. It is a very high-stress and laborious career choice, and while you may lock up the studio for the night and finally make it home, your mind is always back in the studio, planning your next move. It is a 24/7 career, and as I said, a lifestyle.
So yeah, I could probably go on for ages, but I hope that answered your question briefly… :)
