Desiree’s Answer

I'd suggest that you look into university programs that offer fashion as a focus. Consider doing some on-line research to find a local "Fashion Institute of Technology" or something similar and read the courses they offer. In a quick on-line search, I was able to find https://www.villiotifashioninstitute.co.za/ which you might want to research. Explore their website and learn about the school on-line.

Also, read the biographies or autobiographies of famous fashion designers - you can get books (hard copy or e-books) from your local library.

Learn the basics of sewing and fabric. Even if one day you'll be in charge and you'll have teams of seamstresses under your direction, you still need to understand the fundamentals of how clothes come together. The fundamentals are key to success in any field.

Follow new clothing/material trends and emerging technology. Today there are fabrics that charge your mobile phone as you wear them, prints to confusion artificial intelligence or paparazzi, recycled cashmere, sustainable fibers from bamboo -- there is so much more to fashion now than the just the garment! If you're going to design fashion, you should appreciate all the components and materials that go into making a garment.

Simeon’s Answer

Fashion is a degree you can pursue in college and involves many skill sets that you can practice on your own. Go online to teach yourself skills and see if you can get involved in retail or sales jobs where you can get a better sense of consumer tastes and some of the logistics around fabric design. Use online resources to gain knowledge and pick up new skills as well. Find other people that share your passion and ask them for their input as well.
