When you think about fashion design, a lot of people think about the image of a hand grabbing a pencil and drawing some lines that outline what a dress or a suit will look like.¬†It is true that this is one of the first steps, the outline of the ideas that the designer or dressmaker has within himself.¬†It is perhaps the fault of the cinema and¬†television, which¬†have always shown this idea or thought.
But the reality is that there are several professional specialties linked to the area of fashion design. Below are detailed some of them.
- Patron: The Spanish Royal Academy defines him as the person who is dedicated to making sewing or fashion patterns.¬†This figure very helpful for any designer, since it is the one who¬†reflects into a paper or to the screen of a computer, the idea that there is in the mind of the creator of the piece of clothing.¬†There must be a good connection between the two parties in order that the design can be carried out successfully.
- Model: People who are dedicated to being professional models not only develop their task on a runway.¬†We can say that only the best ones come to the big catwalks.¬†In the daily life of any dressmaker workshop or designer, prototypes and costume tests are carried out.¬†The models have an important task since a garment is appreciated better in a person than in artificial mannequin.
- Stylist: Although the main thing is the design of the clothes that models are going to wear on the runways, they also have to wear a makeup and a hairdresser that exalts their figures and makes them stand out under the spotlight.¬†Cosmetics and beauty brands work hard to be chosen by stylists and fashion designers.
