The fashion industry has more than its fair share
of fortune and fame. If you are not part of the industry, you may be
surprised to learn of the amount of money a clothing company can earn in a
year. Apparel companies that are managed properly can do very well
for themselves financially.
With fame and fortune on the back of their minds,
fashion designers on occasion will strive to become celebrities in
their own right. Although many have tried, only a handful of
designers actually reach the status of "famous" or "celebrity".
Some designers will cultivate their own personal name into stardom, but
others will develop a particular brand name, to launch their careers.
Either way, the designer behind the label will typically gain celeb status
if they reach the stage of owning or developing a
popular fashion brand.
Typically, you will find the most successful
fashion designers gracing the cover of style magazines and on stage at the
international fashion week events. In fact, many designers utilize
the international fashion weeks as a method to propel their careers into
the stratosphere. Having a successful showing at fashion week, can
do wonders for an aspiring designer.
Although fashion designers can achieve celebrity
status on their own, the designers often seek assistance from celebrities
in other industries to help launch their labels.
In addition to famous fashion designers, the
industry has a rather tight relationship with movie stars, musicians,
athletes, and other celebrities.
