Establishing Your Own Fashion and Design

Nowadays, you will see different kinds of people with their own fashion and design. Most of us adapted our taste in fashion from our childhood. As we grow older, our taste in fashion changes. We tend to base our styles through the things we see in our environment. Our own fashion and design usually depends on the places we are staying, the people we are interacting with and our personality and character.

How do we create and make our own fashion and design? What are the things we need to have to build our own fashion sense? Do comments of people really affect our own style in fashion? Honestly, many people just wear any clothes which make them comfortable. Comfort is one of the factors affecting our fashion style. Some people just go with the comfort they are feeling when they wear clothes. Design and style do not matter for some people as long as they are comfortable. For other people, style, design and comfort should go along together. Another thing is our personality. Personality or character of a person is another reason why we have our own design in clothing. The way we think, the way we act, the way we speak and the way we interact compose our personality and character. Our clothing design depends on our own perspective and thinking. The environment is also a cause for having your own chic. The environment means your location, the weather at your place and the culture and tradition in the area. Budget is as important as the reasons above. With limited amount of money not everyone can go with what they want to wear inclined to their desired style. People’s comments may or may not affect our thinking when it comes to fashion.

Fashion is not just for celebrities, known and rich people. It does not matter if people think you are crazy having a little unique taste in clothing. What really matters is the outfit which makes you happy, comfortable and proud. Fashion and design trends can also be your basis to have your own style. You can check the latest trends to see what fits you and what fashion and design you like. To establish your own fashion and design is like making and creating a thing in your own unique way considering the factors which will make you feel happy, satisfied and proud of the outcome.

A Guide to the Best Fashion and Design Colleges

You might be surprised to learn that if you are choosing a career, there very likely is a school specific to that trade to assist you in a no-filler approach to educating for that employment field. Popular schools that cater to specific careers include anything from culinary arts to criminal justice. Perhaps one of the most popular of these are the fashion and design colleges.

You can literally spend hours sifting through “the best” of what fashion and design colleges there are. The truth is, that a lot of them simply claim to be the best and have no real evidence to support the claim. But through much research I believe that I have compiled a list of three of the strongest and most efficient fashion and design colleges in the country.

These schools all sit at the same level, and therefore there is no order to their listing here.

We can comfortably begin with LIM College. Centered in the heart of Manhattan in New York City, LIM has been creating leaders in the fashion world for many years. Their main draw lies with their undergraduate programs such as fashion merchandising, marketing, management, and visual merchandising. They also offer graduate MBA programs for those seeking a serious stake in the fashion industry.

Another institution that is making a lot of noise in the fashion community is FIDM or more informally known as the Fashion Institute of Merchandising. One of the best things about this school is that it is actually split amongst four campuses, all of which offer the same undergraduate degrees for prospective students. These campuses are located in San Francisco, San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. An exciting factoid about FIDM is that they are the location for the shooting of Project Runway, a hit television show that airs on Lifetime.

The last school that deserves a spot at the top of the list of fashion and design colleges is the Academy of Art University. AAU won “Best Fashion Design & Apparel Design & Programs of 2008″ for their above and beyond commitment to their students’ future employment. Their commitment includes offering courses and programs online, so that students who cannot move or commute can still hope to have a serious shot at employment in the fashion industry. Some of the companies that pick up AAU graduates include: DKNY, Louis Vuitton, BCBG and many, many more.

These are three very strong schools to get you well on your way to a great job in the fashion industry. You can settle for the countless other schools that litter the internet, but these three have a reputation that make for quite a boost to your resume.
