The runway, cameras, models and lights are enough to intoxicate anyone. It's about putting great ideas on people. The fashion industry has many jobs and many levels. For example, there's the latest hot Italian designer and there the designer who sells out by moving clothes to the local budget-friendly department store.
Getting your foot in the fashion door can be a challenging task, especially if your goal is to be a fashion designer. You can help your cause greatly by creating designs to show off. This applies even if you're looking to get into a design school. While you can go the traditional paper and pencil route, there's a plethora of software out there that can make the job easier and help you improve your designs.
