        Fashion design is a form of applied art dedicated to designs and aesthetics of clothing and lifestyle accessories. Fashion design is highly influenced by culture and society at large in any given time.         In today’s world people try to incorporate fashion in everyday life. Dressing-up is one of the means of expression and impression, so a fashion designer conducts a thorough research on the current market trends and future needs of the target customers and fulfills the design requirements accordingly.   In the 19th century, the first fashion designer was more than a simple seamster was Charles Frederick Worth. Before he founded his design house The House of Worth in Paris, clothing was made by anonymous dressmakers and fashion standards were derived from the styles worn by royalty, He was one of the foremost fashion houses back then and is considered to be the father of haute couture by many fashion historians.     Types of fashion   Haute couture:   A haute couture garment is often tailored for specific client made from expensive high quality and/or unusual fabric with extreme attention to detail. This process is time consuming and is mostly completed using hand executed techniques. These garments are usually very expensive as are sumptuous and may be studded with pearls, diamonds and Swarovski crystals and can be as costly as a Bentley or an apartment in New York.         Considering the amount of time, money, skills and materials allotted for the completion of each piece, haute couture garments are also described as having no price tag.   The term haute couture is protected by law in France and is defined by the Paris Chamber of Commerce. A fashion house must follow these rules to earn the right to call itself a couture house and to use the term haute couture in its advertising - Design made-to-order for private clients, with one or more fittings. Have a workshop (atelier) in Paris that employs at least fifteen full-time employees. Present a collection to the Paris Fashion Week, comprising at least thirty-five runs/exits with outfits for both daytime wear and evening wear twice a year.      Ready-to-wear: ‘Ready to wear’ is a translation from the French term ‘pret-a-porter’. Ready-to-wear clothes are expensive as they are made in limited quantities to guarantee exclusivity. It is clothing marketed in a finished condition in standard sizes and that does not require major alterations.           Almost each Fashion house produces ready-to-wear collections. Fashion houses present their collections during the Fashion week which occurs twice a year: The Fall/Winter (FW) shows take place in February and the Spring/Summer (SS) collections are shown in September. Ready-to-wear collections satisfy the demands of ordinary people who want to wear something exclusive. The materials used with the skills and the intensity of labor of the ready-to-wear collections are moderate as compared to the couture collections. Therefore it is affordable to the ordinary fashion savvy.'       Mass market: The mass market caters to a wide range of customers, therefore producing clothes in large quantities and standardized sizes. Mass market most appeals to the general masses who want to wear fashion forward high street clothing at an affordable price.           Manufacturers often wait a season to make sure a style is going to catch on before producing their own versions of the original look. Cheaper fabrics and simpler automated production techniques are used in creative way in order to save money and time. Resulting in a quicker and bigger production at an affordable rate to the producer and end product can therefore be sold much more cheaply. Thus creating a win-win situation for both the manufacturers and customers.       Image Source : FreePik
