You have knowledge on the latest fashion trends across various communities, as well as working with a wide array of materials, colors, patterns and styles to make the most eye-catching and comfortable clothes ever worn. Did you take up this occupation out of mere interest, or born from a family whose livelihood are associated with clothing, or were you inspired by a famous fashion designer whose clothes have struck you with awe? Do you manufacture your designs single-handedly, or do you also employ various apprentices or other designers of your association to assist you in realizing your works? Were you creating clothes that are ready-to-wear for the masses, or are you solely catering your craft to the rich and elite? Do you only run a few boutiques in your neighborhood, or are you planning on expanding into a formidable fashion empire?
