Some designers conduct their own research, while others rely on fashion industry trade groups who publish trend reports that project the particular styles, colors, and fabrics which are expected to be popular for a certain season in the future.
Sketching preliminary designs. Although most designers initially sketch designs by hand, a growing number now make use of computer-aided design (CAD) software to translate these hand sketches to the computer. Using CAD software also allows designers to view designs of clothing on virtual models and in different colors and shapes, which will save time by eliminating the need to make as many adjustments later with prototypes and samples.
Visiting manufacturers or trade shows to procure fabric samples in order to decide which fabrics to use, how it’s constructed, dyed, printed…Etc.
Creating a prototype of the article using cheaper materials and then trying the prototype on a model for design adjustments.
Adding any embroidery, piece prints and accessories attachment.

When retailers at the shows place orders for certain items, these items can then be manufactured and distributed to stores.The process may be altered depending on the company needs, requirements and capabilities as well, but this casual outline is known to be good start for outlining a fashion design process in many companies.

Education in Pakistan – Need to Be Globalized

The term Commercial Education includes practical training in the field of commerce. It covers professional courses like accounting, banking, book-keeping, business methods, costing, marketing, income-tax, sales tax practices, higher statistics etc. Here is a quotation by Nelson Mandela about the power of education “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”Pakistan is a developing country. Importance of commercial education in Pakistan cannot be overlooked. We are living in an age of commercial and technical revolution, and for the real progress of commerce and industry, we need efficient and trained hands. Therefore, commercial education is of imperative necessity in our country. It becomes all the more important in view of the fact that although we have already entered the field of commerce and industry, we do not have sufficient number of trained persons. Modern business is highly complication one. It is elaborate machinery with wheels and counter wheels nicely adjusted and regulated to well-planned ends. The commercial education acquaints our young men both with the theoretical as well as practical aspects of all matters relating to it. The study of theories and practices of commerce, trade and industry enables a business man to see things in their true colour. It equips him with the knowledge of the tendencies which are at work in the business market. A reputed English writer, somewhere told that “Prejudices, it is well-known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education: they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.”Now the importance of education is realized everywhere in Pakistan. The Government has introduced education at the college and university level. Commercial institutes have started at almost all the important cities of Pakistan. But one feels that still commercial education has not received its due. So, more opportunities for higher education will have to create in the field of commerce than they are available at present. It is wrong to presume that the students of commercial education have no plans. There is boundless scope for expansion of industry and commerce in our country. The scope for a hard-working intelligent young man in the field of commerce is great. There are as many branches as there are temperaments to suit. For many years to come there will be available jobs for person having commercial education in commercial firms, banks and industrial organizations. Let us hope that the Government will give more and more attention to this need of the nation. The study of B.B.A. (Bachelor of Business Administration) is quite relevant with present situation and there are lots of advance branches of studies. Additional facilities will be provided at the college and university level. So, now a day Commercial education is as necessary as well as Technical education or any other field of education.This is brief picture by UNESCO, narrated by By Aamir Latif of PakistanPress International reportsQuote:”Official statistics released by the Federal Education Ministry of Pakistan give a desperate picture of education for all, especially for girls. The overall literacy rate is 46 per cent, while only 26 per cent of girls are literate. Independent sources and educational experts, however, are skeptical. They place the overall literacy rate at 26 per cent and the rate for girls and women at 12 per cent, contending that the higher figures include people who can handle little more than a signature. There are 163,000 primary schools in Pakistan, of which merely 40,000 cater to girls. Of these, 15,000 are in Punjab Province, 13,000 in Sindh, 8,000 in North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) now Khyber Pakhtoon Khaw and 4,000 in Baluchistan.” Unquote
