Fashion is something that has suddenly become very important in our world, it is the most common and yet the most farfetched idea there is. Earlier, people did not give much heed to what they were wearing, or generally how they looked, but today with Facebook and social networking, fashion has somewhat become a necessity.
People are joining fashion industries in huge numbers and the course is gaining a lot of traction in every sense. Sure, there are certain negatives attached to the idea, but surely the industry is fun and one can explore their ideas to fullest extent.
It’s like a coin, with two sides the good and the bad, sometimes you have to suffer a little for all the best that comes in your way.
Fashion courses are popular and there are many colleges/universities that have opened up exclusively to teach fashion and its branches, example being NIFT,NIFD in India.
Why should you choose fashion designing as a career after all ?
DIVERSITY: If you get bored with the monotonous job schedule, this is the industry for you. One can get to play with colors and patterns and styles, trying to fit things under current trends.
This could be seriously fun.
You get a huge range of opportunities to work on and a wide range of professional work to choose from. You can be a fashion photographer, leather goods designer, fashion designer, stylist and what not. All of these seem pretty exciting.
Wherever you go, contacts become very important for you to start something and starting your business is the one great idea many people have.
People always prefer you have contacts in the industry to help you build your career in Fashion.
STEPPING OUTSIDE COMFORT ZONE:
You also get to step outside your comfort zone and do something new, which many people might think is weird and out of the box. People who love challenges in life will love this job and they will get to evolve themselves.
