A lot of student who graduated from fashion design school somehow has expectation of having their own fashion design business. Some of them may want to be a designer and just want to have own little studio then taking the job from outside, mean while some other want to join reputable fashion design schools or institutes or even work for the company which can pay highest income. However, the fashion business today has more variety of options. As the fashion business actually can be started from very small scale like family business where one or two family member could set up by using only little budget, to the very large fashion items manufacturers.
There are so many business owners who are now are very successful and are the owner of very famous fashion design companies, and these people started their business only from home business. However, it is fairly to say that at present time, there will be only a little chance for the home business to become success without having huge amount of money. Therefore, many of graduates who finish from good fashion school and they also paid the expensive tuition fee may not want to go back to start his/her own home business for just to get a little of money.
Even though the key of success seem to be the money that designer have to invest on the business, but in fact, the most important thing that is really keys of the success is the idea of the design. No matter the size of the business that you have just started, it is very important for you that you have to find the chance to get your design out to the public and if your design are acceptable by the market, then you will have more work as well as possibility to expand your business.
There are so many for example of the people who just started from very small home business but finally gain reputation from their design and it means that you can gain reputation by doing in the same way too!. The most effective way to present your design items to the word it the internet. If we were in ten years back from now, I would say that there is very least chance for small business to compete with giant companies because there are very limited channel for small business to present products to public.
But now we are in internet age, where everything is possible and the competitive advantage is no longer limited by the size of the business at all. There are places on the internet to present your work and also not just to present and you can sell them on line as well. There are also many of online auction site that you can capture the market and sell your products. It is the place where any one who wants to sell not only fashion item goes and present the design to people all over the world. Now it is you decision if you are one of the people who want to start up your fashion design career and want to gain competitive advantage of your design.
