While not all fashion careers start the same or go the same way, there are a number of ways aspiring fashion designers can kick-start their careers.

“Connecting and engaging with fashion opportunities, networks and groups is a solid way to build a foundation in the fashion industry going forward.”

Moving forward with a fashion mentor

Fashion mentors are professionals who guide new independent designers through the design process. Sometimes those with no prior experience aim to work their way through the industry with a few designs. However, you don’t always need an internship, a job or a diploma.

According to The Evans Group, sometimes all they need is a clothing manufacturer who knows what they’re doing. Enter TEG’s New Fashion Mentorship Program.

“Working with some of TEG’s fashion experts, many of whom have had rich and varied careers in fashion, are directly at [one’s] arrangement. Naturally, new fashion designers have many questions about their latest collections.

TEG adds that while anyone can use a fashion mentor in their corner, designers with no previous experience are the main clientele.

“Designed especially for people with no knowledge of fashion, it familiarizes and introduces independent designers to the wonderful world of fashion.”

Develop creative skills

It’s perhaps no surprise that creative skills give fashion designers a huge boost in their businesses, but according to TEG, it’s a point worth repeating constantly.

“Developing a variety of skills, whether it’s cutting fabric, sewing, fashion sketchor using AutoCAD software, creating a skill gallery will help advertise [oneself]. Similarly, start a blog, vlog, website or other outlets to put [a] creative voice in the universe.

Giving birth allows you to show off your fashion talents. Again, this ties into the fact that a designer’s best friend is social media in many ways. With the abundance of influencers on social media, it’s no surprise that developing a cohesive and compelling online presence is a skill in itself to master.

TEG ends by explaining that rolling with the punches is an integral part of the fashion industry.
