Ever since I started this blog in February I have grown increasingly interested in fashion design. I know this can be a risky career path to choose as it can be incredibly competitive, but as they say 'if your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough'. I truly believe this. What's the fun in knowing that you might succeed in the most boring and unchallenging career possible? If you work hard you will be rewarded with a job you enjoy. What could be better than that? So I thought I would make a handy guide for people who like me, are just starting out. This guide is also handy if you love buying clothes too. (Who doesn't!?)
Here are the best places to find the unique items and to start gaining awareness for your designing career;
Etsy - http://www.etsy.com/
Etsy is a great site for starting out, whether you make jewellery, clothes or accessories, you can sell your items at a really great rate (It costs $0.20 to list an item and Etsy takes a 3.5% fee on each item sold). You can also sell home ware and vintage clothes and there are some gorgeous pieces of art on here too.
My Etsy Picks;
Young Republic - http://www.youngrepublic.com/
Young republic is a new fashion community that only charges a 10% rate. How great is that? You can sell clothes, accessories, art and home ware on here too. There is a massive amount of great design talent on here.

Asos Marketplace - https://marketplace.asos.com/
Asos is already known for selling great clothes but did you know you can sell your own items on here too? Asos marketplace allows you to sell your fashion creations to a huge customer base and you can sell vintage items on here too. Sellers can choose between having a basic or a boutique account which are perfect for newbies and established businesses.
