MYTH TOWARDS DESIGNING

It has been always said that designing is something which is related to arts and our Indian parents always assume it to be a cakewalk. Doesn’t it seem familiar to read? Well, this story is happening since forever no matter what our history says. It’s time to figure this out practically and wake people up to the real world and know how slippery it could be to walk over it.

Designing is a very huge aspect in itself and contains a lot of knowledge to grab in mind. Its not only about sketching our thoughts over a paper; everything has to be correlated to make a story in itself which could be sold with a sense. But, what people think is that one should have hand skills to become a designer.

What does the whole designing process contains?

It’ a never ending process and have so much in it like a thought, an inspiration, skills to put your thoughts on paper, skill to express, skill to make the thoughts real, skill to visualize it with the techniques, the sense to the right colors, the right fabric, right forecast and tremendous presentation.

And still it’s not done! The technical part what we are not aware of is how to  sell it and how to expand it as a business to earn.

So a designer has to keep in mind the technical factors such as how to reach the customers, how to get order and clients, what presentation, what budget, what rules and regulation domestically and internationally, what type of contracts, what terms and conditions, how to get more people in the business, how to promote, how to advertise, how to make profits.

In this 21st century this isn’t now just a designing, it’s the whole business going on out there and to run the business you don’t have to be only active with your hand, anyway and in every way it requires mind and knowledge towards the business.

To run the business and stick to it one should hold interest towards business, have knowledge of design, fabrics, business laws & strategies, be active towards forecast, possess good promotional skills, communication and dedication.

What we should basically understand is that fashion industry has got work profiles in abundance and we can go for anything what we want not just only designing. Instead of designing there are many other profiles like  merchandiser, blogger, vlogger, photographer, editor, stylist, journalist, motivator, speaker, entrepreneur and so on.

As a personal opinion we all are the racers aiming towards the identity, profits and growth with our various fortes we have in us but we all belong to one field, one race and one direction in a stylish way. As compared to others, we are much better to express ourselves, to show up and moreover we are liberal and proud to be  in the race where it’s written that we can actually find ourselves with our skills.img8

WHO IS THE FATHER OF FASHION?

It’s Charles Frederick Worth…..A fashion designer of note, born on the 13th of October 1825, who founded a leading fashion house in the 19th century called “The House of Worth” in 1958.

Charles Fredrick Worth is considered to be the father of “Haute Couture”

He began sewing dresses to match the shawls. Initially, these were simple designs, but his skillful tailoring stood out for his clients to notice.

His Fashion Innovations……

Worth transformed the connection between a client and the couturier. Earlier there were seamstresses who would visit the client’s residence for a one-on-one discussion on the client’s design requirements; but with Worth, clients mostlyvisited his store for a consultation, which also became a get-together place for the who’s-who of the society.He was the first to use live models to show his collection to the clients.

Worth’s garments were well-known for their extravagant textiles and accessories and for including features from historical clothing. Amongst his many significantrevolutions in women’s fashion were to the lineup of dresses and their lengths.

Silhouettes….

He transformed a very popular trend…….the crinoline. By the way, a crinoline is a structured petticoat designed to hold out a woman’s skirt. Originally, crinoline was a stiff fabric made of horsehair (“crin”) and cotton or linen which was used to make underskirts and as a dress lining.

Worth’s Innovation….

Now because crinoline was ever more huge and bulky in size, it made it hard for women to walk through doors, sit, takecare of their children and even hold hands. Charles Frederick Worth designed a new practical silhouette and thus transformed the crinoline into a narrower piece moving the largest part to the back, hence freeing up the front and sides. His new crinoline was a huge success.img2

Progressive Innovation….

In due course, Worth gave up the crinoline in all, and created a straight gown shape without a defined waistline that we now know as the princess line……”Princess line” describes a woman’s fitted dress or other garment cut in long panels without a horizontal joint or divisionat the waist. Instead of relying on darts to shape the garment, the fit is achieved with long seams and shaped pattern pieces.

FUN FACT: Alternative name for the Princess line was French-dart-line dress.img3

 

 

Shorter Hemlines…..

Worth also fashioned a shorter hemline; interestingly this was done at a suggestion of Empress Eugénie who loved long walks and hated long skirts. Thus calling it “A Walking Skirt”. This was primarily seen as very drastic, even scandalous, since it was at ankle length, but it’s practical benefits wereembraced over time.

ILLUSTRATION DILEMMA

illustration1

Most of the people believe that only if we have a good hand on paper(artwork), we can become a good designer. People judge designing by the skills of their hand and not with their imaginations, but it’s true that this is a crystal clear myth. To become a good designer, there’s no requirement to be good enough with the shades, colors, proportion, anatomy, etc; it’s just that you have to be good and creative enough with your thought. The more they will be ingenious, the more you will be able to make-believe it better on paper. This dilemma that people have in their mind sometimes create a barrier between their ideas and it’s implementation. Moreover, their confidence also gets affected by the same.

 illustration2

It is necessary to have one signature style that defines you and that could be your own  stylized croqui. It could have:

•Different skin colors
•Different strokes
•Various proportion
•Various accessories
•Various features
•Various foot wears
•Various hairstyles
•Various backgrounds
•Various captions, and more

illustration4

With these kind of techniques and textures you can implement and define your own language towards design and illustration with your own sense of style. Every designer and person in himself has to be different with his own specialized skill set and this could a trademark and signature style as well. It depends how you promote and advertise yourself.
So the dilemma is gone far away now and the focus should be more on design, fabric, color, forecast, implementation and promotions for it.
Journaling every second thought will help your grow more towards the design and to express yourself as well. Designers today are not only designers; they are artists, poets, tourists, travelers and much more. They don’t have only one role, there are thousands of them and each one of it has to be described and expressed at it’s best on the paper. That’s how it will help find special identity in a designer.

The Best Institute for Fashion Designing

When it comes to choosing an institute for fashion designing there are two things that every aspirant must focus on. The first is of course the obvious – the institute should harness your creativity and offer you exposure that will help you grow your ideas. At International College of Fashion (ICF) we create the most conducive environment for you to express your creativity and fine tune it for the competitive market outside.

If you take a close look at our course program and compare with some of the other colleges for fashion designing in India you’d see that we have created the perfect balance between designing and business side of the industry. As you’d already know without in-depth knowledge in either of these you won’t be able to achieve success in this career path. With competition having grown at a tremendous pace over the last decade or so with the entry of several foreign brands and labels into the Indian market your success is often determined by how well you understand the business of fashion.

Develop skills to meet competition
Our core aim has always been to develop the right kind of skills in our students to help them face competition that one is expected to find in the industry. From spotting the trends to developing problem solving skills we focus on overall skill development for our students.

While every fashion designing college claims of boosting your creativity and innovation the truth is they tie you up with a fixed course curriculum. This is where we offer great room for flexibility in our course program to help you shape the dreams that you bring along and add bigger wings to them.

A step into global world of fashion…

IT’S JOURNAL THING!!!

journal1

People belonging to ‘art world’ like doodlers, designers, artists, etc. have their own dimensions yet have so many similarities. These people have the abilities to mold themselves in any situation and they can express it in a tangible form. Creating a journal for everything makes them a ‘tourist’ as they create reminiscences and then note them as memories. These memories always have some thought and a spirit to get remembered. For a designer, journals are their printed sheets and their eyes are their cameras with their minds as the printers.

 

journal2A to-do list is always there to get filled. To make reports, create forecasts, designs, a collection, a doodle art, a landscape or portrait art, a journal is always present there to join all the points with each other and then come up with something new and original. This originality defines an individual’s thoughts and his work. A self-made, self-believed thing has got a more powerful spirit than the captured and printed one. The cycle always runs alike, somewhere somehow it is not highlighted much to create a journal in the fashion industry but you need to collect all of it what you have got because that’s how successful ones have worked.

journal3It could be anything as it’s said it is a Journal thing! To match all the points, link them and create something different from everything is the daily task for every creative person out here. People are journalizing everywhere every second to create a trend report for others.

 

journal4That is why it is all observed and processed every time to run the fashion world because it can trickle up or trickle down the story anytime.

For a designer, it’s a die-hard thing not maintaining a journal and to gather all research creatively in just one scarp book. Every scrap out there has some emotion, research, thought, idea and knowledge with a beautiful story behind it and only a journal can spell it out loud.

Whether it’s a doodler, graphic artists or someone else journal teaches the following to them:
-fonts
-arrangements
-to express
-to compile
-to place
-to clear everything out
-to create
-and always to get to the result!
