How would I become...

...an amazing world-famous fashion designer*? Without doing a full time degree?

Ok so I've wanted to design clothes for a very long time and I just don't know how to go about it. I can learn dressmaking skills and I believe I've got a really good eye for this kind of thing but how do I get off the ground without a degree? All the colleges around me don't do part time courses in fashion (bad times) so whats the best thing to do?

    you either study it and learn learn learn, or you are a born with a special talent.

    Practice, experimentation, practice, a little natural talent and more practice!

    If you need info on learning to sew (don't know how much experience you have) this thread is full to the brim of useful info and links.

    Also have a nose round etsy.com to see what other people are designing and selling.

    In terms of 'making it', or starting a business, I can't really help!
