Question: What are your qualifications as a fashion designer?
Answer: This question can be answered in several ways. You can describe your education: fine arts with fashion/design focus. You can describe your work experience: fashion houses, employers, employees, and of course your actual work (the portfolio). Or you can describe your personal characteristics.
Question: Are you computer literate in relation to fashion design? Would you be able to use software to produce designs?
Answer: Be frank. Some established designers use no or little computer software in their work. Others rely heavily on technology (CAD). Simply explain how you work. If you are an efficient designer, your use of computer software will not be relevant.
Question: In what general area of design do you work or wish to work?

Don’t try to impress employees with what you are not. If you are an expert in high street fashion – you will be appreciated and find plenty of work.
Question: How do you stay up to date with fashion?
Answer: Designers stay current by reading magazines, browsing the internet, attending fashion shows, and studying technical manuals. They study the history of fashion to better understand its development and current tendencies.
