Working as a Fashion Designer

Working in fashion design in Ohio can offer you a surprising amount of opportunities for career growth. WBNS 10 in Columbus, Ohio, reports that Ohio is ranked third in the country in fashion design. They note that the state has many prominent fashion schools that have high job placement rates for graduates. You could work in many different settings as a fashion designer. Ohio has clothing manufacturers, wholesale manufacturers, and design companies that are always looking for the next great fashion designer. The Akron Beacon Journal, which claims that fashion design is growing in Ohio, notes that Abercrombie & Fitch and other major companies have corporate locations in this state. Innovation, creativity, and perseverance are some of the most important traits for fashion designers. Companies don't want someone who's just going to reinvent the wheel; they want someone who can look at current trends and figure out what the next big style is. Perseverance is crucial, since your designs might get rejected several times before they're accepted. Rather than giving up, you should just keep on working and developing your designs. You never know when one of your creations will take the country by storm!
