Fashion Design Tilly Fisher
Job Overview Fashion design is the designing and creating of new fashion trends. The more unique your creations, the more successful youll be. Its a glamorous career with a lot of money to be made.
Why are you interested in this career? It wasnt until I was 13 years old that I decided I wanted to start choosing my own clothes and picking out different fashion accessories to match my outfits. Ever since then, all Ive been interested in is fashion. I often watch fashion shows such as Americas Next Top Model and sit back in amazement at the different fashion styles.
Education Pathway To succeed in the fashion career, I plan on studying at the London College of Fashion. I have previously taken a course in CADD, which should be of great benefit when applying for my position. The total cost of my entire education should vary between £25,000 - £30,000.

Salary The salary for a fashion designer varies depending on the amount of experience you have. A newly trained designer should expect a yearly wage or around $10,000. But the more experienced you are, the more this will increase. If you get noticed, you could expect a yearly wage of over a million dollars!
Future Outlook Fashion design will always be a great source of income. New fashions are always in demand and always will be. Celebrities are always looking for new designs, to make them stand out from the crowd. New fashion ideas will always be appreciated.
Working Hours Depending on personal preference, fashion designers can work for a company, coming up with new ideas along side other designers, with a guaranteed wage. Or, you can go it alone and become a self-employed designer. Youre not guaranteed a wage, and its a lot of hard work, but if you create a good enough design, youre in for a lot of profit.
Risk of Injury Supposing you know how to work a sewing machine, and take all the safety precautions when using the necessary tools, the risk of injury in the fashion industry is fairly low. However, it is a fast paced job and if youre not careful, you could easily loose focus and cause some damage to yourself.
Related Occupations Another occupation that I would consider from the fashion industry is a fashion reporter. Fashion reporters are responsible for the write up of the latest designs and ideas, witnessed first hand from the runway. This interests me a lot because fashion and writing are the two things I love most of all.
