As per as my opinion is concerned, Clothing is non other than art. Art is a process of imagination into creation.
Clothes are made out of fabric but clothes are designed by Imagination. Imaginations into Reality, Dreams into Forms and Inspirations into Creations. A designer has to have clear thoughts and inspiration to create an outfit. Our imaginative Power has to deal with several aspect like What colour will be there, How it is going to match with a particular style, How it will go with the embroidery on it, Weather it will look good in a particular style or should we change it, Weather it will give you comfort after wearing, weather it can be warm in winter or weather it can make you cool in summer, etc.
Our imagination Power deals with all kind of things as per as designing is concerned.
