I thought for my next post that I would continue on with some more advise for anyone looking to break into the fashion design world. One of the many questions I get asked is where you get inspiration from for your designs? Well, being that I am a shoe designer primarily, I think I will focus on that area first and foremost. With the age of the internet, it’s pretty easy to get inspiration for designers. I spend hours browsing Pinterest and similar sites and have come up with some cool designs thanks to things I’ve seen on here and other sites.
Being in the design industry for so long, I often get asked how one goes about getting into this career and what kind of qualities it takes to actually become a fashion designer. To me… Being a fashion designer is much like being an artist. In fact, I think fashion design in most ways really is an artform. One of the most important qualities that you have to have is to be both artistic and creative.
