How to Become Fashion Designer ( Part 5 ) – Fulfilling Your Vision

Becoming Your Own Fashion Designer

I know some of you may have been disappointed by the realities we exposed in our “How to Become a Fashion Designer” article series. Our apologies, but we had to destroy the bliss of naivety to spare you from many rude awakenings when you start your fashion career! That being said, I’m sure there are also some of you who are determined to become that ideal vision of a fashion designer: create your own label, design your own fashion lines, runway fashion show and the whole nine. We commend your ambitiousness and of course, we are here to help! Here’s our suggested approach to become your own fashion designer.

Learn the Fashion Biz

First thing’s first, and we’ve all heard it a million times: Fashion is first and foremost a business. Yes it’s true – you could have the best apparel collection in the world, but if you don’t have the business savvy to manage your fashion design operations or market yourself; you’re in for a rough and disappointing journey in the fashion industry. Countless talented fashion designers try creating an apparel line without the proper business foundation to support them. Issac Mizrahi, and Narciso Rodriguez are just a few well-known fashion designers whose fashion careers were almost destroyed by their lack of business knowledge.

We highly recommend educating yourself and taking business courses- either in school or on your own. Really get to know the fashion industry. However, if for some reason you prefer not to, you should at the very least seek a knowledgeable (and trustworthy) business partner to handle that end for you.

Finding a Niche

Concerning the actual apparel designs, if you want to make your mark and get noticed in the fashion industry, you have to make sure your apparel designs stand out amongst the swarm of pretty outfits already crowding the runways. If your vision for your collection is just to design “pretty” clothes, the chances of your work getting noticed are like finding a needle in a haystack! The cliché word of advice is to design for a niche market. But what does that mean?

A Cause for Design

Here’s our take on finding a niche: find a cause, and design for that cause. Choose something that you’re passionate about, or pick a theme and design for that theme. Create a trademark that you will become known for. Betsey Johnson is known for her funky, outrageous, one-of-a-kind garments that reflect her quirky personality. Diesel created their highly functional, hardware driven signature style from the construction worker lifestyle. When apparel designs are consistently focused around a specific element or concept, they will receive more attention and that concept will become your design signature. Once your fashion line is established and well known, you can always expand. And whatever you decide on, make sure it’s something you believe in; something you are passionate about. When your fashion designs come from the heart, it shows, and you’re inspiration will be endless.

Get Your Name Out There!

So once you’ve selected your cause and designed an extraordinary apparel collection around it, how do you make sure your fashion designs get publicity? Fortunately, modern technology makes promoting yourself a much easier task. There are tons of venues that showcase emerging fashion designers such as nolcha.com and haute.net (See the Independent and Underground Fashion at our Resource Center for more links). There you will find underground designer showcases that give beginner designers their own venue space. You bring the designs – they bring in the crowds.

In the past few years, an underground fashion revolution has emerged, creating a shift in the apparel industry. Consumers are tired of apparel fashion clothing that is dictated by an elite few fashion designers, and have begun searching for more unique, down to earth sources for their apparel & fashion needs. New waves of fashion designers are discovered in unconventional places and recognized for their individual fashion design styles. Educating yourself, knowing the business, designing for a cause you love, and promoting yourself through new avenues are all steps in the right direction towards having the fashion design career you’ve always envisioned!

Kate Moss for Brazilian Lingerie brand Valisere

Kate Moss in underwear campaign

Kate Moss shows us her sexy body in the collection of Valisere, the Brazilian brand of lingerie that most intimate and personal.

Recently we saw in her farewell as a designer of the famous British fashion brand Topshop, and now we are surprised with these spectacular images of the controversial model. And it has become a guarantee of success for any brand certainly has the opportunity to have her.

With red feather boas and lace. From classic and comfortable to sexy lingerie. This is the proposal Valisere Underwear for next spring summer season 2010-2011. The photos, taken by Gui Paganini in London, show the more feminine face of the famous supermodel.

It seems that this time the PhotoShop has been one of the stars of the shoot, despite the brand Valisere strives to deny. And it is no doubt that a good touch computing is the best remedy to hide behind the age of 36 outbreaks of the model. The debate is open.

The pictures, for Brazilian lingerie label Valisere, have a very French feel, but it’s the good bits of ‘French’: the red lacy underwear, Brigitte Bardot hair, smoky eyeliner and unmistakable whiff of cheese and riots. Cor. Love that stuff. And there’s nothing better than having a French girl do a little French tut at one of your shit English jokes. Nothing. Okay, maybe ham and cheese croissants that are actually made, purchased and consumed in France. SO GOOD.

Women’s 2011 Fashion Trend; Lingerie as Outerwear!

The last time we saw a shift towards lingerie as outerwear was the 1980s, and while I exude a general disdain for that decade I can’t help but admit that certain fashion elements which emerged from it do have a place in this decade and the next. And so it is that we see various pieces of underwear return to the fore as outwear to feature amongst 2009 and 2010 fashion trends. And in many ways this may become one of the ubiquitous fashion trends; one that is transseasonal, and one that emerges as we pay fresh attention to tights and stockings as a feature piece, and not just an accessory, courtesy of the ripped stocking trend.

Underwear As Outwear

But what elements exactly? And how do women play to the racy element without going so far as to look cheap?

  • Suspenders and Stay-Ups
  • Camisoles and Slips

Stay-Ups and Suspenders

Of all the looks to emerge around underwear as outerwear, exposed stay-ups and suspenders are inarguably the most risque and the most difficult to pull off. But that hasn’t stopped the most daring of women trying, and I’ve already spotted it on the streets, in street style blogs, and on the celebrities such as Mischa Barton (see more updates on who has worn it below).

Though difficult to pull off, thanks to a come-back of patterned-stockings and tights women have a huge array of options. Take, for instance, Agent Provocateur’s snake stay-ups whose snake-motif will distract from the fact that these are indeed stay-ups.

Mischa Barton Underwear

One thing I would say in this area: avoid wearing stockings as outwear. Yes, Sienna Miller got away with it at the New York after-party of Factory Girl. But there are two points to make here: the first is that it already looks dated, the second is that she is Sienna Miller. And it’s the second point that allowed her to get away with it.

Slips and Camisoles

First emerging on the catwalks in Spring/Summer 2008, lingerie-inspired garments have their basis in corsetry. Back then bodices and boning gave way to free-flowing pieces that took, and continue to take, their inspiration from delicately feminine lingerie. styles.

Slips and camisoles may just well be the best use of lingerie as outwear as their intricate detailing and light fabrics often make their quality on par with dresses one might find on the high-street. This does have the detraction of making them only suitable for the Spring/Summer seasons however.

Slips and Camisoles as Outerwear

If you’re looking to try slips and camisoles as outwear look to pair it with other fashion trends, such as the sheer fashion trend. But remember it’s a feminine look, so one that is harder to pair with heavier elements (but not impossible; it’s not too hard to envisage a slip paired off against heavier, shin length boots). If you’re looking to take inspiration from the catwalks pair the look with bold accessories, leather belts and chunky heels.

Seasons This Underwear Trend Is For

As I wrote in the introduction, lingerie and underwear is trans-seasonal and will work in both Autumn(Fall)/Winter and Spring/Summer seasons; naturally individual elements and colours will lend themselves to either/or seasons but there are no strict rules here.

2011 Lingerie Trends

Fashion is not restricted to only dresses, skirts, trousers, or blouses, but it also includes innerwear and accessories. Thus, if you like fashion and want to be in vogue, your lingerie too has to be fashionable and trendy. We all know that the things that are fashionable today will be outdated by tomorrow. Hence, it is necessary to know the newest trends to keep yourself up-to-date and be on the top. This equally applies to lingerie, which changes as the seasons change. Fashion designers are constantly bringing out new lingerie collections that give you a chance to look stylish, exclusive and glamorous. Right from sexy lacy bustier to simply smooth satin bra, the lingerie industry has lots to offer you. As far as 2011 is considered, you have an array of feminine, naughty, seductive and sophisticated innerwear trends coming up. Check them out in the lines that follow and see what suits you best to reveal your sexy curves and your fanaticism and intimacy.

2011 Innerwear Fashion Styles
Colors
Come 2011 and we will get to see lots of bright and decent colored lingerie hanging around the intimate section of your favorite stores. The days of strictly blacks, whites and nudes are left far behind. You will have a wide range of colors to choose from including jewel tone fuchsia, teal, chocolate, purple, turquoise, yellows, aqua, sapphire, soft pastel blush, coral, and mint green.

Patterns
Contrasts of opaque and transparency are the newest trends that will mark as the new high-tech style. Transfer prints, graphics, animal prints, bondage accents, primitive embroideries, Berber stripes, geometrical accents, beautiful laces, ikats and metal accents are to watch out for. The season brings out the essence of new luxury to conquer the land of modernity.

Fabrics
Lingerie for the entire 2011 will talk of silk, silk and more silk. You will find lingerie in silk satin, silk charmeuse, silk chiffon and other varieties of only silk. These will give your figure a glamorous look, while complementing the elegant designs donned on your body.

Shapes
2011 lingerie trends combine the ethnic and otherworld marking the return of the triumphant camisoles, bodices, teddies, caftans or djellabahs, and dry knits for that eternal seduction. This amusing creativity brings forward real ardor and femininity. For those wanting to flaunt their deep necks and cleavage, you have bikinis, thongs, G-strings and boxer shorts as the hot picks always available at your service.

Return of the Lady
A lot of overtly feminine tones will take over the market in 2011. Intricate detailing can be seen, such as knife pleating and decorative seams to enhance seductiveness and fascination. The vintage look, aka retro look, will be definitely in form as it returns back this season, but with a modern silhouette.
