									Accessory Design Degree

It is common knowledge that American women, unlike European women, do not
know how to accessorize. This is a shame, particularly for those who
spend their creative talents making accessories such as hats, scarves,
gloves and purses for every day use.   Many people with an accessory
design degree find themselves pandering to the European market.

While someone necessary does not need a degree to become a successful
accessory designer, it is often helpful and will enable you to get your
foot in the door of a fashion house that creates such designs. There are
many people in the world who feel that they can create their own
accessories using materials from the store. They sell their wares at
flea markets and online outlets for a fraction of what a proper designer
could get.

If you truly are serious about becoming an accessory designer and like
working with fabric and designs but do not like the intricacy of
designing actual clothing, you may enjoy working as an accessory
designer. It is best to have an art degree to be successful in this
field. In addition to allowing you to get a job in a fashion house that
specializes in accessories, it will also enable you to learn the right
and wrong way of creating accessories and how to spot the different
trends.

In addition to learning about creating the accessories, if you are serous
about becoming an accessory designer, you should take an apprentice job
after graduation in a fashion house so you can learn something about the
business side of this fashion industry. Here you will learn about
marketing tactics and how accessories are sold.

The more knowledge you gain, the better off you are than the average
person on the street who is trying to hawk home made scarves at the local
flea market. You do not want to sell your goods at the local flea market
for pennies when you can sell them in upscale boutiques for dollars, do
you? That is why it is so important to learn as much as you can about
the ins and outs of the fashion business before embarking on your own
venture.

Designing accessories can be fun and creatively rewarding. Imagine being
able to gift someone a one of a kind home made purse. Or pass by a
boutique and see your scarves and other accessories hanging in the
window. Accessories come in many varieties - from belts to bags to hair
clips to scarves - accessory trends, like fashion trends, are always
changing. It is not only important to be able to come up with creative
ideas, but equally important to be able to keep up with the current
trends. We do not see people selling snoods any longer, do we? This is
because that is one accessory of the past.

You do not need to get a four year Accessory Design degree. If you are
serious about starting your own business, you can opt for a two year
degree. A person who wants to make their living designing accessories
should have much creativity, a flair for fashion, good marketing skills
and good sales skills as it will most likely be necessary to try to sell
your items to owners of small boutiques.

The good part about being an accessory designer is that you do not have
to have the vast knowledge of a fashion designer and boutiques are
usually more than willing to take your quality accessories for sale on
consignment basis. It can be a fun and rewarding career for someone with
a lot of creative talent and boundless energy.
