      Don’t wait until you are older start doing it now! When I was younger I did as much work expereicne as I could to learn about engineering and make sure that I really wanted to do it.

      I’d advise you to try and get some work experience and talk to people you know that work in fashion to try and learn as much as you can 🙂

      Fashion Design, like most things that have an artisitic element is really hard to do so good luck! i would advise you get as much practical experience as you can, in all elements of fashion design.

      Yeah just like Chris and Michael have said don’t wait to start have a go now at getting some work experience or doing some of your own research to see what you find interesting. Taking art and design classes at school could really help, you may find some skills you’re really good at or see a way to use it for a fashion purpose, like wearable technology.
