What skills do you need to become a designer?
you need to become gay
There are not many skills needed, but you do have to have experience playing video games. ^ The last answer to this question is completely bogus. You need a lot of skills for it. To be a video game tester is experience playing video games. The question is "What skills are needed to become a video game designer?" NOT "Are there any skills needed to become a video game designer?"
There is no "degree" in high school and to become a fashion designer you really don't need college at all. There are designer schools in the world, but you need a LOT of talent, luck, and really wanting to do it. My guess is about 1-2% of the people who start out to become a fashion designer really make it.
