Hi ok I need help and some advice . Ready? Ok , so like I want to be a stylist/shoe designer but I really don’t know where to start I know I have talent . In a way I feel like I’m wasting time . At times I doubt my self because by know I should really just have a career set and not be working retail. I see my self styling and designing shoes but I just don’t know where to begin or what to do . At times I’m not motived as I used to be. Anyway do you have any advice for me on how to keep my self motives and inspired. How to get my self in the fashion industry?

Loubitin,

School is a great place to begin. There are strictly fashion based schools that offer courses in this field of study. There are also art based institutions that also delve into fashion design. If you wish and/or have the funds, there are specialized institutions in Europe that are shoe design specific. Depending on where you live, you might also want to begin an internship or mentoring program with a shoe maker or shoe designer if that is available to you. Not only would that help your motivation levels, but it will also give you a glimpse into what you might be doing in the future. That will ultimately secure your desire to venture in this career. Hope this helps.
