Profession

Fashion Designer


Description

A fashion designer thinks about different ways/styles to make a Garment/Cloth. Some of the things they think about before producing a Garment are the shape, color, fabric, trimmings, and other aspects of the whole. The fashion designer begins with an idea of how a garment should look, turns that idea into a design (such as a sketch), and specifies how that design should be made into an actual piece of clothing by other workers (from patternmakers to finishers).
