Being a fashion show designer means that you are responsible for all the small details regarding the fashion show going as planned and that you need to make sure about the publicity aspect being taken care of as well. This, as you can imagine is quite a handful. At times, you will surely find it pretty difficult to manage all these aspects and details, but if you plan on becoming a fashion show designer these are some of the things that you have to put up with. A lot of people think that a fashion designer only takes care of the actual podium and the way the models present the outfits. In an ideal world that you would be true, but because you will start with working for a smaller company at first, you will be required to handle all the above mentioned tasks.
So, what do you need to do to become a fashion show designer? Well, first of all, you need to go to fashion disign school. Again, fashion school is not only about designing clothes. A proper fashion school will have several courses, one of which will help you become a fashion show designer. This course will include basic economy classes and management, but mostly it will focus on different aspects regarding design in fashion. Depending on the area where you live, you will probably find some differences between this description and the actual course. You should also think about getting an internship if this service is available, but if not, you can also try finding a temporary job during the course of your studies. This helps because you can build up some experience and develop your skills so by the time you have graduated from fashion school you are ready to take on difficult and complex assignments.
Finally, a fashion show designer might also be required to handle hiring the models. Because he or she knows exactly how the show needs to look, they will also be able to hire the perfect models for the job. Also, choosing the clothes they will present in the show is important. This might be a little bit easier because you might only be allowed to use a specific line of clothing from a certain designer, but if you are allowed to use more clothes, you can get some help from a fashion advisory or consultant.
These are the basic tasks and requirements you will need to meet upon becoming a fashion show designer. It is the type of career that you follow because you enjoy it, so if you like fashion, but are not really model material, this is as close as you can get to the shows and the glamour life. It is one of the most exciting, yet stressing jobs in the business.
