So You're a Young Aspiring Designer in the Fashion Industry...

Have you ever wondered what it would take to become a fashion designer? Maybe when you were younger, you thought that you had an eye for fashion trends or are at the age now where the fashion industry interests you.
You may be thinking how hard it is to get started and that it is impossible to be successful in this industry, but the greatest thing about fashion and art in general is that there are no barriers to entry; anyone can become a designer in their own home!

Some of the most famous designers in the fashion industry started at a very young age in their own home creating outfits from simple materials with their amazing imaginations. Don't get me wrong, it's not an easy road to travel. As you probably know from Project Runway, the world of fashion can be a very harsh place. It doesn't matter if you're young or old, being criticized as a fashion designer comes with the job. Starting out, you will always here from at least one person that you will never make it and that your designs will never become popular. If every designer had listened to their skeptics, we'd still be wearing the animals that we ate for dinner last night (no offense to any vegetarians out there).

The point being that to be a successful designer, you need thick skin from a young age. Just like any other industry, the fashion industry has its thorns and needles. And, just like any other industry, it takes hard work and dedication to rise to the top of your field. Whether your creating jeans or measuring tapes, to be at the top in fashion, especially as a designer, takes hard work. There are a lot of young people out there that aspire to conquer the fashion industry but simply don't have the drive to do so.

Good luck to all you aspiring young designers in the fashion industry! Remember to stay creative and always remember to dream.
