I Am...FASHION

Lesson - 1

How to Become a Successful Fashion Designer

Sometimes we feel we have a good flare for fashion, interest in sewing or making clothes, drawing or generally in ‘creating’ things, we feel we can convert it into the profitable business of fashion or be the ‘Fashion Designer’ we see in Vogue. It is true, to the extent that it is a good direction, but not enough to be that successful ‘Fashion designer’ or embark on that fashion venture.

 

Like every other profession, even fashion comes with a requirement of skill sets and aptitude one needs to excel.

 

Here are some of the qualities one needs to succeed as a designer-

 

-Being Creative

You need to have a great sense of style and coming up with new ideas is the life of fashions.

 

- Drawing Skills

Excellent drawing skills are always a boon to be able to sketch your ideas onto paper for the production process quickly.

 

-Good Eye for Materials

You have to have an eye for the materials of a garment, as well as the elements that make it unique, such as colour, fabric and trims etc.

 

-Sewing Skills

One certainly needs to understand the sewing processes so that you can convert your design ideas into a 3D reality. i.e. construct the garments from your design.

 

-Knowledge of Current Fashion Trends

Fashion is all about what styles are accessible at a particular time. It is essential to be aware of current trends and have a right eye for anticipating what your audience will respond to next.

 

-Visualization Abilities

One of the highest rated skill and rightly so. Good fashion designers can visualise a garment before putting an idea on paper.

 

-Good Communication skills

One must have excellent communication skills, as there are many people involved in the creation of a garment and that too of a broad spectrum. One must be able to communicate effectively to everyone to get the results one needs to achieve.

 

-Team Player

One needs to be able to work amicably with others as part of a team. Designing a garment for production involves the work of many, from pattern making to sewing to shipping. As a designer, you must be able to work well with all involved.

 

- Business Sense

A successful fashion designer needs to have excellent business skills. You don't just design clothes; you have to be able to sell them profitably to make it a profitable venture. You need to understand budgets, marketing, and sales concepts that are vital to getting designs produced and sold.

Having reviewed this, we may find that this profession needs a diverse skill set, some may come naturally to us, and some we will have to cultivate. It is always wise to ‘know ourselves’ first, evaluate our strengths and weaknesses and work accordingly.

 

-KNOW YOURSELF

-KNOW YOUR CRAFT (WELL)

-KNOW THE BUSINESS

-KNOW YOUR MARKET

-KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER

 

ACTIVITY

-Carefully examine yourself in the light list above, and write down the qualities and skills you think you possess and the one ones you need to cultivate

 

-Start observing

What ‘YOU’ consider fashionable.

What you consider a good design

 

-Start building a ‘Resource book.’

Start collecting pictures of what’s a good design to you- online as well offline.

The Only Decision You Need To Make This Year A Remarkable One

Dhaval

The problem with delaying important decisions is that you keep overthinking. And overthinking creates more doubts, you create imaginary situations which do not exist, you think about events which haven’t happened yet.

This is the problem with delaying important decisions. You don’t get anywhere.

Here’s what I have learned through my trial and error of making decisions for years.

The only decision you need to take is to make quick decisions.

There have been times when I knew I had to make decisions and I delayed because of fear and other reasons. After a week of delay when I took decision, I experienced unbelievable results in a minute.

I wondered why I didn’t took action earlier.

I then realized that all those days when I didn’t took any action were the days I wasted.

How many times has it happened to you that you didn’t take action? Combine all those days. It might also happen that you have spent half of your life in delaying decisions which you could have taken, failed, learned and taken better decisions again rather than just waiting to make right decision.

So what’s the solution here?

So simple:

Just follow the two steps when you need to make any decision:

  1. Stop thinking.

  2. Take immediate massive action.

Period! This is the only solution you have.

The unpleasant cyber attacks of 2017 are still fresh in the minds of the people.

To mention a few, they are Wanna Cry, Not Petya, Equifax, and etc.

Evidently, the 'Cybersecurity' term which was known to IT professionals and was less common to layman has hit the world. By witnessing these mentioned cyber attacks and more other terrible attacks, one may not dare enough to predict the possible attacks in the year 2018.

Still, there is positive hope in securing the cyber world. The private, public, and the government agencies as well are allocating separate budget on cybersecurity.

We can find several hit words revolving around the cyber world like the IoT security, GDPR, Cloud security, security literacy, critical infrastructure, password death, official cyberwar, questions on board and more.

The Information Security professionals from C-suite level down to Network Administrators are looking forward to Cyber Security Resilience, Smarter Security, Security Protocol, Research Promotion, Blockchain usage, Security Rethinking, Cyber Hygiene, White-hat hacker, and so forth.

"2018 is going to be a very busy year as companies and their technology vendors fight to protect information and debate who should pay in the event of a breach," says Jeff Swearingen, CEO of SecureLink.

At this juncture, it is essential to know some of the Cybersecurity predictions in 2018.

1. AI-powered Attacks:

As free and commercial AI implementations are growing, and bad guys in no time would attack this zone. A few of the expected attacks include spam messaging with chatbots, smarter brute force attacks, or the cryptographic attacks.

2. Cyber-hijack:

As an autonomous control for transportation is becoming real with the Internet of Things [IoT], the hackers may take complete control of the transport automation and demand ransom for relinquishment.

3. Cyber-war:

The passive-aggressive actions may turn into an open aggression regarding the attacks on banks, governments, and, others. It may include the attacks on infrastructure and utilities for disrupting the normal operations.

4. IoT legislation:

Gary Hayslip, CISO of Webroot says that "Legislation will require IoT manufacturers to be responsible for producing products without known defects." Bringing legislation may become the game changer in adopting IoT efficiently and securely.

5. Attack through Social Media:

Social media is another zone for the attack through sophisticated activities like the social engineering and reconnaissance. The organizations must implement enterprise-wide social media security policies to protect themselves from breaches.

6. Political Attack:

Data breach is an undeniable and unfortunate development in the cyber world. Several cyber-attacks against the infrastructure industry may be influenced by politics, with a potential for loss of human life.

7. Biometric Adoption:

The fingerprint and facial recognition authentication on mobile devices, two-factor authentication for the personal account would become predominant. The adoption will increase more in the year 2018 at enterprises and personal level.

8. Mobile Attack:

It is predicted that the games available for free when clicked for download, the mobile system may get compromised for data leakage that is stored in it.

9. Organized crimes:

The cyber-crime may become well-organized and planned. The use of ransomware and other cyber-extortion tools would continue to grow.

As a result, the managed security solutions provider would be in great demand. The GDPR is going to be effective from May 2018.

Apart from these predictions, there may include unpredicted security issues. And the predictions may or may not come true.

However, the individual's or the organization's data today are vulnerable to attack anytime. Steps regarding the safeguard of the data are highly essential.

Conclusion:

You should understand the need of Cyber-security to protect any of the Organization form Cyber Crime. Mercury Solutions offers the Cyber Security training courses. Learn from the experts.
