Beads

I'm turning 12 and I wanna be a fashion designer.
I'm good in math, drawing, and im sort of good in knitting (im learning, but im good enough now)
I ADORE fashion designing specially the part when you end up with alot of clothes 😉
but i need tips.. any help?
thnx in advance!! 😀

psst… the rules of Yahoo answers say you need to be over 13 to post questions…Can you edit out your age? I don't want your question deleted before seeing my answer.

To answer your question: at your age you should be learning how to make clothes and how to take the clothes you have an make them different and special. You can add beads, trims, appliques, sparkly things, paint…anything and everything creative. At your age you should be developing your imagination and exploring your creativity. You are too young to worry about the business and the technical stuff, you can learn that later…when you are young it's more important to unchain the imagination and let your thoughts run free and untamed. Pattern making is easy to learn…creativity can't be taught.

You should be experimenting with a sewing machine and fabric, trying to turn your sketches and ideas into clothes. Try to make a dress form based on your body and then drape fabric on it, pin it together, sew it ups and see how it looks. Don't be afraid to make mistakes and learn from mistakes. All designers are willing to fail, because a failed experiment can pave the way for a successful design. Keep a record of what you have made, fabric samples, and write out what worked, what didn't any lessons learned, and what you might do different next time or what you will do the same. I have kept a record like that since I was about 13, and I still keep a record of experiments, special pieces, or any new tricks or techniques.

Try sewing from commercial patterns and become the best sewer that you can be. The clothes you make from patterns should look like you bought them in the store. (fashion schools ALL require the student to be able to sew, some will take an accomplished seamstress with few sketches and lots of completed clothes over someone with a thousand drawings. and no clothes. When you sew with patterns try to make each piece unique and add touches of your own personality. As you progress you will discover that you are naturally attracted to certain colors, certain motifs, etc, this is your person artistic style developing. This is a good thing, everyone needs a personal artistic vision and personal artistic style, even fashion designers. You might find you put turtles on everything, or maybe flowers…that's part of your style. (I put mushrooms on everything and my favourite print is almost always paisley)

Develop a love for fibers and fabrics, all textiles, clothes, sewing and the creative process that goes into creating the clothes. Develop a love for all things hand crafted and hand made. Try other crafts along side sewing and clothing, such as knitting, beading, applique, patchworking and quilting, fabric embellishments and hand embroidery. All these can be used on clothes to make them special

And that's what you can do at your age. That's how many of the designers I have met started. If you read designer biographies most will say that they started at about 12-14 making crafts and clothes and discovered that they loved doing it and they just kept doing it until it became their career.

That's what you need to do at your age.

I don't have anything extravagant to do as art but I was thinking something more like sewing…

-sewing
-embroidery
-painting
-cross stiching

I was thinking of painting but I don't know what to paint, I don't know what to embroider, I have no beading ideas…I don't know what to draw…I want to build something but don't know what

Do you often get confused on what bag to match with this outfit and that? Do you spend time trying on your clothes and trying on the different handbags you have in your closet just to make sure that your entire ensemble looks fabulous? If you do, then you are just one of the millions of girls worldwide who spend everyday thinking of what to wear and what to match with what. Sometimes when I try to think about it, I even get surprised at the fact that I don't complain transferring my things everyday from one handbag to another daily because I want my outfit from the clothes, the bag, the shoes and the accessories to match.

If you don't carry on so much stuff, I would strongly suggest that you invest in clutch purses and clutch handbags. They practically look great with any outfit irregardless if you are going out for a night out with your special guy, going off to work, attending a wedding or just going out to shop with friends. You will find these bags to be the perfect accessory especially if you don't have that much stuff to carry around with you. The many variations of clutch purses in a wide variety of colors, shapes, designs and style can project varying themes from being sexy, sophisticated, cute, chic and even formal. You will find that they come with a variety of embellishments like beads, crystals, sequins, brooches and embroidery. Some are even designed with detachable chains or straps, clasp closure and internal as well external pocket design. You will find them to be made from almost any material like silk and leather to name a few. Because of their small size, they are most appropriate accessories for bridesmaids during a wedding.

You can find a wide variety of clutch purses and handbags on online stores. With the array of choices to choose from I'm pretty sure that you would be selecting more than one bag for that matter. Buying online is easy and convenient. With just the click of a button on the choice you have made and providing your credit card details as well as mailing address, your clutch is well on your way to your doorstep. I would suggest though that you ensure that you are entering a very secure site since you will be providing your personal and credit card details. Check also the shipping expenses that will be charged for it usually vary from vendor to vendor although most sites offer free shipping costs.
