What qualifications do I need to be a Designer?
After a Bachelors Degree If your degree is in a specific subject, for example a certain branch of fashion design, the roles you can apply for as a graduate should be fairly clear – as assistant in a menswear department, for example, if you have studied menswear design. If your qualifications are more general or you have studied something that you now don’t want to pursue directly, you may want to look into a Masters degree or postgraduate qualification in your particular area, as this will firm up the skills you need. The main thing you’re likely to need is a strong portfolio that demonstrates your work and technical ability, along with a significant amount of work experience to prove your dedication to your chosen field.
What skills do I need to be a Designer?
Art, design and fashion jobs are all about being creative, and having the confidence to run with your ideas. You'll need an open mind not just in trying new things, but also in learning from and working for people who've been in the industry a long time. You also have to be on time with deadlines, and be able to work well with a team of people.

Although specific technical skills are needed for each area of the art and design sector, there are certain skills that are required across the board – whether you work in fashion, the design industry or a fine art. They include:
  • Commercial awareness
  • Business sense
  • Strong organisation
  • Design flair
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Time management
  • Resilience
One of the main skills you will need as an artist or designer is to be able to keep up to date with the latest trends and developments. You’ll also need a thick skin, because being successful in this industry is tough.
What experience do I need to get a job in Art, Design & Fashion?
Work experience is absolutely essential in this industry, so aside from a well-stocked portfolio you will need to demonstrate that you have taken on various internships – some of which might have to come after you’ve graduated or completed your course. Contact companies directly and ask if you can come in for work experience or to shadow an existing member of staff.
