Famous fashion designers come from all walks of life there is no one system to follow that will have you become the next famous fashion designer. Some have graduated from elite fashion schools and some have never attended fashion school. Some have undertaken a fashion internship with a fashion house whilst others have made their own designs in their den. The only elements all these fashion designers have in common is they had endurance passion for fashion, were able to design fashions highly sought after and with someone who gave them the opportunity to break into the fashion industry. It is essential in becoming a successful fashion designer you get you and your designs out there if you can ,, as how will anyone know about your fashions if they can’t see them?
In getting your fashions out there here are a few things you can do:
- We are not usually good at everything some of us are great at designing clothes but lack the sewing and pattern making skills. It is here you can partner with someone who shares your passion for fashion and has the skills you lack.

- In having a fashion line of 14 outfits you can put on your local fashion week. In north america: New york, Los angeles and S . fransisco all have fashion weeks. These fashion weeks attract many editors, journalists and local socialites who will see your fashions and potentially give you the exposure you need to get known.
- Many city night clubs hold fashion shows, find out what night clubs hold fashion shows and contact them as to how you can be apart of an up and coming show.
- Locate fashion boutiques that cater to the fashions you design, first make a trip to the stores to look around, if you can see your clothes fitting in well with the store, find out who the owner is and enquire if they would be prepared have some of your fashions offered for sale in their store. You will be amazed at how many store owners are willing to work with you. I walked around S . fransisco in the Nob Hillside center and had my fashions placed after visiting and discussing my product with four boutiques. In having your fashions displayed you will receive valuable skills as to whether or not your designs are in demand and if you need to change your designs to increase sales. It will also give you free exposure to the public. When your fashions do sell you can present this to investors who are more than willing to invest in your line, when you prove the existence of a strong demand for your fashions.
