Designers must have an eye for detail, as they must ensure that their designs are accurate and of high quality. They must also be able to work with a variety of materials and be knowledgeable about the different manufacturing processes.
Designers must also be skilled in sketching and pattern making (or have people on their staff that are), as they will need to create technical drawings of their designs. They must have a good understanding of the different body shapes and sizes, as this will help them create garments that are flattering and comfortable to wear.
