>>9283330 Well I'd say there are different levels of success as a designer, you won't necessarily be Rick but then you have Recht which is successful in my eyes though not at that level.
I'm not necessarily interested in being a huge designer, but I'd be content with a small label, hell even a streetwear kinda brand like Aime Leon Dore.
Something I've really though about is something that lives somewhere between fast fashion and high fashion. Say affordable clothing that doesn't rip off other designers but rather has it's own concept and aesthetic
I suggest you go to school for it. Honestly, the kids that do fashion design at my school work like fucking dogs, no doubt. But honestly, if you're inspired to the point where you're already drawing up pieces you may as well at least try to go the whole way. Passion and enthusiasm mixed with originality can take you far.
you think you can just draw some folds on your chemistry notes and expect seamstresses to read your mind and create the perfect piece? maybe it'll work in a huge company like inditex but there are so many other factors in making clothes
>>9283474 But what If I'm not shooting for those heights? Like I said before, I'm mostly interested in something smaller. But what I wanted to know if any top designer doesn't know how to sew, I'm sure there must be some.
Its like fucking Steve Jobs, lots of people think he was a genius designer, but the only thing the guy had was conceptual vision. I consider myself a lot like this, in that I have things on my mind I want to create, but I have no talent for actually making them a reality
say i own a brand and want to start making jackets (a hooded windbreaker) how would i start? designing the pattern? what kind of company would i look to create these for me? what would i need to supply them with? what kind of quantities should i expect for the minimum?
Sorry to break it to you, but the "gap" between fast fashion and high fashion is a market that's pretty hard to do well in because consumers would rather pay a bit more to get a consistent / reliable product which is exactly what they want than settle for something "like" it but not as good
If you're serious about it then go dig through / follow BoF for a year or so, it gives you a good foundational grasp on the market, the industry, and what's going on in general
And you probably should go to school.
