Chapter 26: Experience and Education
This book can only begin to suggest what the  eld of fashion design encom-
passes. The resources available to the designer are vast. Fertile ground for
new ideas can be found in publications and on lm, in archives and online.
Fashion weeks and trade shows actively engage the designer and offer new
sources of stimulation. A fashion designer’s education may take many routes,
from fashion schools to internships, incubators, professional conferences,
workshops, and online classes. In the end, every experience can be mined.
