What It's Like: An Interview with a Fashion Design Student Don, a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City, is pursuing a career in fashion design. He has always been fascinated by clothing and decided when he was twenty years old that he wanted to be a designer. In New York he enjoys going out to big nightclubs to see all the interesting styles and outrageous outfits. He has been attending FIT for three years and has taken courses in sewing, pattern making, draping, and different types of drawing.

Designing uniforms is another career that few people think of when considering fashion opportunities. This may be because it is not the most creative or glamorous design job, but uniform design can be a much more stable career than other types of clothing design. To be a successful uniform designer, you need to become expert at putting new and unique spins on traditional designs. Most of the jobs available are with large firms, where you would sketch ideas and sew together apparel for mail carriers, soldiers, police officers, and others.

Many of these designs were then knocked off (copied and mass-produced) and sold at more affordable prices. In this way, the middle class became directly involved with fashion beyond merely reading about it in magazines and in the society pages. Knockoffs became a fashion tradition that persists despite the objections of most designers. Though the business of manufacturing affordable clothing grew quite rapidly, this did not stop some women from sewing clothes for themselves and their families. Many popular fashion magazines included patterns so that their readers could create the designs they had just read about.
