The Fashion Industry's Lingo
I started working in the LA garment district while in design school. What a great experience. I learned a lot just by observing, being able to see how the design team works together is the best training an aspiring designer could have.
Design school was giving me the tools and techniques, but I really had to be immersed in it to understand the process. One of the things I remember most during my observing opportunities was the unique lingo I heard.
