Q. Hi, I would like to know the work opportunities of an Accessory Designer?

Answer: Jewellery, Handbags, Shoes, Watches, Scarves, Umbrellas, Luggage, Hosiery, Sunglasses and Belts are no longer designed as they used to be. This new field of Accessory designing is changing the face of fashion houses, making accessory a sequel to fashion. And fashion is no longer a privilege of women alone, but has also mesmerized children, young adults, men and the aged alike. Accessory designers can work as designers, product line builders, stylists, merchandisers and production assistants at fashion houses. Jewellery houses and export houses are recruiting accessory designers to revamp their creations to push sales. Companies like Titan and Tanishq are big time into designing watches as an accessory. Swarovski too has an array or designer accessories. One can find employment with leather manufacturer of handbags, belts, wallets, etc or a footwear manufacturing company. And finally there is always the scope of free-lancing.
