I went FIDM in Los Angeles and i got an AA in Fashion Design :)but i have yet to have a fashion job....anyone want to give me one?

Answer

ok uhmm first of all to the person who answered it above me... theres no such thing as a fashion design degree! Most designers need formal training after high school. Some attend a professional design school or get an associate degree, but in general most need a bachelor's degree. It is typical for fashion and graphic designers to get a degree in the fine arts. Fashion designers usually get their training through summer internships or by working in retail. Some designers may decide to become teachers in design schools. Some open their own design businesses.

No, you do not need a license to be a fashion designer, but a degree in Fashion design is important.

You will need a degree in fashion design from college in order to become a fashion designer. An associate or Bachelor's degree will do. You will also need training in business. A designer will need a skill for textures and design as well.

That kind of depends on what you need it for.

To be a costume designer you at least need an associate degree in fashion design. However, while pursing a degree you may want to considering volunteering at local theaters to help them with their costumes. Since costume designing is such a competitive industry you may want to think about getting a degree in costume design (commonly called production design). The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising offers an associate degree in costume design (though an associate degree in fashion design is a prerequisite). Savannah College of Art and Design offers a 4 year Production Design bachelor's degree program as well as a 4 year Fashion Design bachelor's degree program. Many other colleges offer a bachelor's degree in Fashion Design and by working with that colleges theater department frequently you will be able to make yourself highly qualified to be a costume designer. I am on the path to become a costume designer myself, I am double majoring in Fashion Design and Production Design at Savannah College of Art and Design in the fall. Good Luck, I hope you find this helpful.

no they dont, but however they do need at least a bachelors degree or better in fashion design to even try to get an entry level job.

Yes, you DO need to be a fashion designer to open your own fashion label/design. You dont necessarily have to be a famous one though.

Specific subjects may or may not be necessary for you to pursue you fashion design degree. This essentially depends on the kind of institution where you want to take your degree. To be able to make it in fashion design at an industry-recognized school like Milan's NABA, you need profound creativity, and pronounced skills in drawing, computer drafting and sketching, together with a knack for color and detail for textile and style.

You mostly do, but there are also very talented designers who are famous even though they don't have a degree. It can be good, but it isn't a must have.

fashion designers mostly need an education in art and clothing design in sewing. most fashion designers either have a masters or bachelors degree in fashion designing. most people with a formal education will have the best opportunities in the fashion designing industry though.

Science relates to fashion design because in fashion you need to know what the fabric you are using is made of.

Legally you do not need degree to become fashion designer. You need degree and proper training to become good fashion designer. You may have inborn talent but proper guidance will improve your skills.

User Avatar

Some fashion designers also combine a fashion design degree with a business, marketing, or fashion merchandising degree, especially those who want to run their own business or retail store. Basic coursework includes color, textiles, sewing and tailoring, pattern making, and fashion history

No, you don't need a degree, but it does help. A degree with classes in architecture and design will help you learn the skills you need, and look good on your resume.

Well I would say a desire to design and a eye for creativity and trends for sure but also attending a fashion college will go a LONG way and I'm sure a lot of fashion design jobs require that you have a degree from a fashion college. If you're researching fashion colleges, look into FIDM. I have friends who graduated from that school and they really loved it and told me that FIDM has a very well known fashion design program and that a lot of famous fashion designers graduated from that school. Good luck!

If one is seeking an art job in the fashion industry, it would be quite advantageous to have a degree from an art school. With degree in hand, one may need to get an internship or trainee position to prove one's worth. If the art job one is seeking is as a fashion designer, do not discount the value of attending a fashion design institute.
