Clothing is an essential part of everyone's daily life. People wake up in the morning, get dressed, and go about their day. However, those people rarely know the design, sample production, and promotion process including the inspiration, theme, mood board creation, fabric selection, design refinement, and labor that go into making their clothing. These elements are fully illustrated in this paper from the perspective of a designer. For my line of design I researched prevailing themes and silhouettes, created a clothing line, constructed three of the looks, and showcased these garments in a fashion show. I discuss the entire process of designing a line and promotion, and the challenges I faced while developing design samples and putting together a fashion show. Throughout this process I learned what goes into designing a line and the different skills it takes to implement it.
