Fashion designer

This is the most obvious one and nearly all of you are familiar with this one. Names like Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi, Masaba Gupta, Bibi Russell are so very popular among the people. The Indian film industry has been promoting the designers and there is a good demand for talented fashion designers. The job of the fashion designer is to make fashionable clothes that are unique and stylish. They also make footwear, jewelry, accessories too. From sketching the designs to a selection of the fabrics, drawing patterns or styling the outfits- everything is done by them. 

Retail Buyer

When you are a retail buyer, you can start a new store and get the best-designed clothes and accessories for your store. You can either buy them from a designer or get them made on your own too. This is a great business idea and with the boom in the readymade industry, this will be a profitable venture for you to embark on. 

Retail Manager

Working as a retail manager in a fashion boutique or departmental store or with big brands can be a highly satisfying job. The retail manager sets the daily target for the staff at the store, ensures that the promotional and marketing strategies are working smoothly and the customers are satisfied. The retail manager also has the duty of heading the human resources department and the finance department in small companies.


This is one of the best and tough jobs that you can opt for after completing the fashion designing course. When you are working as a stylist, it is your job to pick and select a wardrobe from a collection of a designer according to the tastes and preferences of the client. The wardrobe must not only suit the character of the client but also the type of body the person ahs and the occasion on which the dress will be worn. The stylist also gives suggestions about the kind of make-up that will suit the dress, the accessories and hairstyle needed to look perfect. Stylists are required by models, photographers, magazines, influencers and so on. 

Textile Designer

The role of a textile designer is to design 2D patterns, weave and print fabrics and so on. The fabrics may be used for making clothes or for making soft furnishings. These designers can work in an independent way or as a part of a team. These designers use CAD for the development of patterns and different textures. And hence they need to have knowledge about all the technological changes happening in the world of fabrics.

Jewelry or footwear designer

If you are a fashion designer, then jewelry and footwear are areas about which you have good knowledge. A recent trend has shown that the footwear and jewelry market are independent from the clothes market. This is a whole new business area where you can reap in huge profits. There is always a demand for shoes and beautiful jewelry. So as a designer, you will never be short of work.

You have to pick and select the best dresses for them from a wide variety of designs at the best prices. For this job, you will have to be a great shopper and must have the ability to make the best deals from the best stores suiting the needs of your client.

Make-up artist

Fashion and make-up go hand in hand. It is essential for one to put on the right make-up with a particular dress. A fashion designing course also teaches an individual about styling, makeup, and skincare through workshops. Hence becoming a make-up artist is not a big deal. These individuals are hired for fashion pageants, pre-wedding photoshoots, wedding photo shoots, for models, and even for celebrities. In modern times, the make-up artists have also started their online channels where they give make-up advice for the audiences.
