A celebrity is a widely-recognized or famous person
who commands a high degree of public and media attention. A “fashion
celebrity" is a famous person that has an influence on the fashion
industry or consumers of fashion.
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.
For example, it is important for movie stars and
musicians to wear the clothing that is designed by clothing designers.
When the movie star leaves their home, they are often photographed at
nearly every turn. As a fabulous fashion designer, your goal is to
have the celeb wearing your clothing when they are spotted by the
paparazzi. Keep in mind that the photographs or videos that are
taken will often end up in a
newspaper, or on television. Either way, this will help
publicize the designers brand...
In addition to having movie stars and pro athletes
wear designer fashion during their daily routine, it is equally or more
important to have glamorous celebrities appear at fashion week events.
To be a successful designer, you cannot simply put on a fabulous cat walk
display of beautiful models and stylish accessories. It is very
important to have the room full of photographers, fashion reporters and
