    I want to become a fashion designer , but I'm 11, what should I do?
    I am really good at it and I think I'm ready for the industry. The problem isn't I'm nervous it is that there's no schools to go to when your 11. I want to be discovered but I think I need to go 2 New York 4 that, but I'm just not quit ready 4 that so I need help!

    First, you need to start taking art and design courses to prepare yourself. Your school, especially at your age, may have limited offerings in this area, so you will have to wait.

    Keep designing and learn to sew and start making your own things. When you get a bit older ask your parents to help you set up a web site where you can display your designs. The idea is to build a portfolio.

    When you have some designs, talk to local clothing stores to see if they will help you market them.

    There are many schools that can help, though NY's Fashion Institute (FIT) is one of the top schools, there are others. You can make this dream come true, but it will require work and patience. Its not going to happen right away.

    I have always been really good with designing clothes and what not. But I honestly think that if you really practice you can go far with it. Going to NYC when your eleven is a little risky ONLY because you are such a young age. But if you make some pieces that are really nice, maybe they may look at them. Just stick to what you are doing, your only eleven so you should be in 6th; 7th grade? Just give it time. You have your whole life ahead of you. You will go far! Good-luck!

Is there anyone out there looking for a fashion designer that can draw out ideas, but can't sew? If not, do you know where I can go to find someone like that? Anywhere I can look? I'm trying to teach myself how to sew a little better, but until then, what to do?:confused:
