    If you want to be a fashion designer you have to be really determined! In school for starters take classes like fashion design (I’m taking this class 2nd semester) Also take classes where you can learn about money management, try sticking to AP classes or Honors. Keep a journal for research. Write down fashion categories (the type of fashion each company makes) Decide which category interests you such as junior wear or shoes. You should focus on this category. Come up with a good name like Forever 21 and Love Culture and a logo. So an example would be Pricillas Lovely Purses and then your sign would be a purse or something. Don’t steal somebody else’s name, so don’t go Forever 22 Lol. For inspiration take a cork board and pin different fashion pictures and some of your own sketches. Subscribe to fashion magazines like Teen Vogue (I’m subbed to this) or Cosmo. Don’t copy fashion pieces…ever! Be yourself and design your own ideas. Take art classes so you can learn to draw your fashion ideas and bodies of a model. Ask for a mannequin for your birthday or something so you can pin clothes on it and dress it up in your fashion. To see how the clothes would fit somebodies body. Learn to sew. That one speaks for itself. It’s a biggy. Take part in fashion designers competitions to learn more and improve your work. Learn how fashion is sold. Know the type of person who will buy your fashion. Find an internship! NYC would be a fabulous place to start! Create a portfolio and resume. First job maybe could be an assistant to a fashion designer or you can work for a fashion designer. You won’t be head designer yet. (Just thought I might add if you don’t already watch the show Jane By Design, it’s my favorite show ever, search JBD up! Or watch Project Runway!) I know this was longish but I hope I helped! Good Luck! :{)
