|Designer Unknown (2007 Fashion Show)|
(A friend asked me to write a post on Fashion. Fashion is not my forte but a few months back blogging was not my book either. So I decided to take on the challenge. I dedicate this post to all Fashion Designers, Fashion Bloggers and Fashion Loving Females i.e. almost 99% females of the world.)

Attending a couple of fashion shows provide an insight into the workings of fashion industry. Fashion design appears glamorous but it requires dedication, hard work and enormous amount of patience. Fashion Design is a great combination of analysis and art and calls for using both sides of the brain. While a Fashion Designer uses creativity to make a design, artistic faculties to choose color or combination of colors and pattern, scientific wisdom is helpful in deciding texture and type of cloth.

The design process involves sketching the design on paper and visualizing on a human body. Imagining the costume on a human body is probably equally challenging as creating the design. Computer technology helps but animation cannot predict real people. Desire for perfection motivates the details and subtlety in style and those become the key differentiators. The designer’s task is not complete unless the right accessories are bundled with the main costume. If it is a design for an individual, a specific segment of a society, an occasion or for masses, the process is similar and time consuming.
Fashion Designers deserve appreciation for their relentless efforts to make a significant population of the world look and most importantly feel beautiful.
