I admire your passion for your work !

You are living in the most exciting area in my opinion .
The Bronx is the leading area for trendsetting hairstyles ,art,& fashion!

In my opinion , any big cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago ,or internationally Paris, or,London can support your interests.

There's plenty of apprentice and intern positions in these locations.
You may want to be more specific in your interests .
I.e.- do you prefer living in a warm dry area ? Do you want to concentrate on sports attire or edgy hair with emphasis on color?
The west coast is the best for this.
How about high fashion? Haute Couture and classics hairstyles?
New York and the East Coast cater to this.
Your lifestyle may drive your desires .
Of course if you're more "laid-back", consider Atlanta .
Good luck with your endeavors !
You'll be a great success at whatever you put your heart into !

Hi Richa,

A fashion designer creates clothing, including dresses, suits, pants and skirts, and accessories such as shoes, for consumers. One can specialize in clothing, accessory or jewelry design. Some designers work in all three areas. Another area of specialization is costume design for those who want to create wardrobes for television, movie and theater productions.

Some designers are self-employed. When a fashion show is upcoming or a deadline is approaching, designers have to work long hours whether they have full or part-time jobs or are self-employed.

Since most jobs are found in big cities, such as New York and Los Angeles, expect to relocate if you live elsewhere. You should also anticipate racking up those frequent flyer miles. Travel is part of most fashion designers' jobs. You will have to attend trade and fashion shows, as well as visit the countries in which many factories that produce clothing and accessories are located.

You don't need a college degree to become a fashion designer, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't earn one. While formal education isn't required to enter this field, many of the candidates who will be competing against you for jobs will have an associate or bachelor's degree in fashion design or a related field. If you choose to earn a degree your coursework will include color, textiles, sewing and tailoring, pattern making, fashion history and computer-aided design (CAD). Students also learn about different types of clothing such as menswear or footwear.
