How to be a Great Designer in the Garment Industry


Because of the incessant need to earn money so that they can survive in this world and afford the bare necessities like food, shelter and clothing, people need to work hard each and every day even though they are sick and tired of their dead-end jobs that lead them nowhere fast. Although they would love nothing more than to drop everything on their plate, quit their day jobs and pursue what they really want to do in life like rubbing elbows with the cream of the crop, joining a textile exhibition and becoming a world-renowned fashion designer for the rich and the famous, they still have a lot of responsibilities as the breadwinners of their household.

This really grinds their gears to dust, throws a rusty monkey wrench on their plans and put their loftiest dreams on hold because they have to choose between keeping a job that they hate in order to have a steady source of income and following their dreams since time immemorial at the risk of falling hard into bankruptcy. Therefore, it is a good thing that the fashion industry is booming in this day and age because people are self-conscious about what they wear and how they look. They want to stand head and shoulders above the crowd, draw attention to themselves and turn people green with envy because they look so flashy with their trendy clothes and outfit that is edgy, unique and comfortable all at the same time.

This is a good time for aspiring fashion designers to visit the best textile machinery exhibition in town, upgrade their tools, sharpen their skills and bring out the big guns to show the whole world what they are made of. But aside from dressing to impress, no pun intended, young designers should develop their own style instead of simply copying and stealing the ideas of established icons like Christian Louboutin and Gianni Versace because their target market and potential clients shy away from copycats who do not have an ounce of shame or integrity.

Therefore, they should work hard, use their imagination and let their creativity run wild as they use their sharpened skills and natural talent to create something new, fresh and exciting that will generate a buzz in the fashion industry. It is not an easy road and their work is cut out for them just like the fabric, thread and other materials that they will use to create their masterpieces but at least they are doing what they love the most because they are right in the heart of textile innovation country.

With that said, they still need to stay inspired and motivated that is why they should go to fashion shows to see what they are up against. They should dive into their homework and review of related literature so to speak as they browse through mountains of fashion magazines and read countless articles to know what is hot and what is not. Last but not the least, they should listen intently to their customers because they, of all people, know exactly what they want and what they need.
