Education Needed Parsons The New School for Design

Because designers can be employed by major corporations, manufacturers, design firms or themselves, it is impossible to pin down a "typical" working condition. Should you choose to work independently, you'll spend more time one-on-one with clients, adjusting your work in their home or in your store until they are pleased with the final product. If you work for a larger employer, your day will be spent surrounded by people doing jobs similar to your own, usually in a well-lit and spacious center. Work Setting Because this is creative work, long hours are sometimes involved, especially during direct interaction with a client or during shows. Designers-typically independent artists-must sometimes accommodate their schedules to those of busy clients, and their work is not finished until someone else says it is. But most designers take great satisfaction in their finished product.
For many fashion designers, the most rewarding-and most stressful-part of their job is a fashion show. This entails long hours and constant interaction with models, buyers and reporters. It will also probably involve some travel to major metropolitan cities around the world.
