One thing that never changes is that things change. In the fashion industry this proverb is a rule of thumb. If you are a fashion designer looking to make a profit out of it, there are a few tips that could help you plan. Identify your target customers.
Are you designing your apparel for children, teenagers or for the elderly? Now, narrow down your objective. For instance, if you are focusing on children, identify what are the children’s interests.
They love cartoons and vibrant colors. Choose the colors that suit the moods of children. For instance, girls like pink and boys love black and brown.
More detailed research on income groups would help you to determine a financial target. Are you willing to sell your designs to lower income groups or higher income groups? What is your price range? $5 or $500? You could do the research with market research, survey results or even by gleaning from your experience.
In fact your experience would be the best judge in identifying the fashion market. Your ideas are unique and in fashion this is a USP (unique selling point). Though fashion designing changes from time to time, there are many patterns and colors that never change.
