Have you ever wanted to design your own clothing line? Doing this takes a love of fashion as well as creativity. If you have both, you may be able to design your own t-shirts, sweatshirts and other types of clothing that not only you can wear, but others can wear as well. Follow these instructions on how to get started designing your own clothing line:
Get a logo design
You can draw a logo design on paper or you can hire a graphic designer to create a logo for you. There are websites where you can work on a custom design for your custom clothing. Once you have a logo that you like, you should incorporate it so that it appears on all of your custom clothing. You can get the logo copyrighted if you are concerned with theft. The United States Copyright Office has a website where you can take care of this and create your own trademark so that no one else can steal your logo. After you have the basic logo, you are ready for the design.
Create an original design
Your design should be attractive and original. Make sure that you put your creative juices into overtime when you are doing this as it will be the first design that you will wear that will bear your creative label. Think of designs and colors that you like and come up with several different ideas that you can blend together.
Sketch out the design on paper
Take a piece of paper and sketch out the design so that you can see what it looks like on paper. The trick is, during this step, to get the design out of your head and onto a piece of paper. Once you see what it looks like on paper, you can then make any changes that you want to the design itself. After you are satisfied with the sketches, you are then able to start creating the actual original clothing.
Make sure it is professional
You do not want to premier your new designer original that you created looking like something that you created on your computer, do you? You are better off to have the item professionally created. This never used to be possible as you had to place a massive order years ago in order to get customized clothes that you designed yourself. Today, however, there are online websites where you can pay for items that you get printed as you get them created. This makes for a professional creation of your design. When people ask you where you got your new look, you can truthfully say that it is your own designer label!
