Fashion designers can spend their days researching trends and creating mood boards to design an item or collection around. They often use designing software to create technical samples that will be sent to their manufacturers for production.
Fashion designers work with a wide variety of people to produce clothing, so they spend a lot of time in meetings with print designers, production managers, creative directors, and others. Fashion designers also have to have a strong relationship with their suppliers, the people who produce materials and other components as well as the people who cut and sew their clothing, to ensure that the original design is reflected in the final product.
For many fashion designers, working for their favourite fashion brand as a designer or launching their own brand is a career highlight that gives them creative freedom.
