Freelance Fashion Designer Roles and Responsibilities

A Freelance Designer/Maker has expertise in their chosen area and a high level of creativity.

They work for themselves, selling their work to galleries, shops, private customers and sometimes large manufacturing houses.

Freelance Designers/Makers spend much of their time collecting inspiration, sourcing materials and researching new techniques. They may also run craft workshops and attend craft fairs and exhibitions.
Freelance Designers/Makers usually work irregular hours, depending on the number of commissions they have. Longer hours may be needed when working towards deadlines or when preparing a collection.

A Freelance Designer/Maker is usually based in a studio environment, which could be rented or in their home. Those working with specialist machinery or equipment need to make sure there is enough space.
