Career: Fashion Designers

If you spend endless hours poring through fashion magazines or putting together your own new looks, you may want to consider a career in fashion design.

Using their flair for color and style, designers create trendy new fashions as well as practical garments, such as sportswear.

Fashion design is also a labor of love, requiring long hours and little chance of superstardom -- but for many, the work itself is the reward

Fashion designers use flair and know-how to create everything from hospital uniforms to the eye-popping outfits worn by rock stars and models.

“Fashion is architecture.”
