Fashion designers perform many tasks including studying current trends and designing clothing. The designers draw out a sketch of the potential pieces before bringing the ideas to life.
After getting the idea for the garment down on paper, the designers search through fabrics and choose what they want to use for their specific pieces. Some designers sew or construct the clothing pieces themselves, while others oversee the production process from start to finish. After the initial garment is manufactured, they make adjustments and do fittings on live models. Other duties of a fashion designer include meeting clients, creating patterns, sewing and attending fashion shows.
