Apparel Business Draws in Fashionistas

Why does everyone want to join the fashion industry?  Just because you are a fashionista it does not necessarily mean you are ready.  Seriously, you may actually not be ready…

We can’t even begin to tell you how many people wish to create an apparel business.  The number is almost mind boggling.  If someone told me that 70% of the world’s population wanted to start an apparel business, I would “almost” believe them.  OK, seventy percent is an unrealistically high percentage.  However, you get the point, and the number must be pretty high.   

What is the reason for this phenomenon? 

In the opinion of Apparel Search, the desire to become a fashion designer is similar to the concept behind why people want to start a restaurant.  Despite the fact that the majority of restaurants fail, there appears to be an endless supply of wanna be chef’s lining up to open new dining establishments.  Sure this is great because clothing manufacturers have the opportunity to manufacture chefs clothing, but why do all of these people think they can be a successful restaurateur.  The reason is that they love cooking and they believe that the meals that they prepare are enjoyed by all.  The problem is that cooking for your family is “way” different than managing an actual business.  Food preparation is only a small part of the business.  In regard to fashion, it is a very similar dilemma.  People are confused that their love for clothes, footwear, and style means that they are qualified to manage an apparel business.  This is simply not the case.

Having an eye for fashion and a fantastic sense of style, most certainly does not mean that you understand customs clearance documents, inventory management, and quality testing procedures.  It is critical to understand that the science of garment design, manufacturing, and distribution is more complicated than the average person would consider.

As with any business, when looking from the outside, everything often looks very easy.  The reality is that this is often not the case.

Before you decide that you want to become an emerging fashion designer and take a shot at the catwalk, take your time to learn about the fashion industry by attending a school specializing in garments & textiles.  If you think you are ready, you can further investigate explore a career in fashion.

Are you interested in becoming an emerging designer on the road to fame and fortune.  Do you want to work in the apparel business in another capacity?  If yes, most definitely give it a try.  However, before you blindly jump in, make sure to study the apparel industry first.
