Work Nature

  • When you buy a scarf, bag or belt, you're purchasing a product that was made by an accessory designer. These designers use artistic skills and computer-aided design software to develop patterns, and may be involved in the production and marketing of their creations.
  • Accessory design begins with research. Designers assess current trends and predict what will be in style in the upcoming seasons.
  • They use trend reports to decide on colors, fabrics and shapes for their accessories.
  • To create sketches for their designs, accessory designers generally begin with hand sketches, but they also might utilize computer-aided design (CAD) software.
  • Designers produce prototypes of their accessories and make modifications before going into production.
