Fashion Design Production

Fashion and accessory designers use their knowledge of design principles, techniques, and tools to create sketches and models of original garments, shoes, handbags and other fashion accessories. They often specialize in a particular facet of clothing design, such as men's, women's, children's wear, or lingerie. While some fashion designers control the entire design and marketing process, others use the services of patternmakers to create original textiles and trimmings, production managers to oversee the actual creation of the fashion line, and fashion merchandisers to introduce and establish the designs in the fashion marketplace.

Textile design is one of the design world’s most unique disciplines. Professionals in this field create designs that are used in the production of everything from clothing and furnishings to linoleum flooring and spacecraft insulation. Many of the designs created by textile designers are used repetitively, while others are a one shot deal.
