Lend personality to colors, do you? Wonder why Lara Dutta was wearing a red gown when she won the Miss Universe title! If you can read colors, feel textures, notice blends and believe that you can create the look, look no further. Prove your genius in the field of fashion design.

Fashion designers are trendsetters. So you are one of those who spend a packet on bracelets, ear studs, danglers, scarves, tattoos, bags and bindis. If you think jewellery, shoes, belts and hats are style statements and speak louder and more eloquently than the design itself, complement the cut and contribute meaningfully towards an ensemble.

If you have microscopic vision and can look beneath the surface, look at weaves and knits, the little interlaced criss-cross patterns on cloth, then fashion merchandising could be the ideal choice.
