Many aspiring designers overlook professional training and it is something that should not be overlooked. Fashion training gives you the chance to follow your dreams the best and most useful way possible. To become a successful fashion designer/entrepreneur learn the process having an idea is not good enough.
Be your own boss
A larger number of startups fail in the first year, being an expert in what you’re doing lowers your chances of failure. Would you believe it if I told you that most of the failure comes from people not doing enough research before diving into their business, it sucks right? That’s why training is important. With a proper training you can do several things.
You can be a consultant
Consultants help others achieve their goals. Some consultants make N1.7 million on average per job so it’s not a bad idea to know more that most people really. You need to understand the process used for achieving fashion goals. You must be knowledgeable about technology and its applications. If you have a passion for this, it is best for you to take a professional course and learn as much as you can too. The knowledge you acquire and the expertise you develop from that sets you apart. That is the reason why consultants are paid that much. So if you’re interested in this get all the knowledge you can get, research widely and I can bet you, you will never regret it.
Be a Stylist
Stylists are the people making decisions on what to wear when to wear them and how to wear them, talk about being a boss! Being a stylist is not just all fun and games, you have to know what you’re doing as well as keeping up to date with the latest trends. You also have to be innovative which is what our advanced course teaches. This is not just all training, you also have to have a fashion sense. It’s mostly talent and a creative use of your technical and design skills.
These are the savvy business people that make the clothes we have on our backs. If you want to be a designer you have to know a whole lot about dress making. You need technical and design skills. You have to follow trends and be creative with the use of fabrics.
