A fashion designer takes part in about every aspect of bringing fashion to the public. Creating the basic design can be done in different ways. It can involve storyboards with sketches, to working with a dummy and sewing pieces of material together. The creating phase is when the designer takes his/her vision that's swirling in the mind's eye and puts it into a visual expression. This first draft of the design is then worked on as the designer develops the first basic prototype. Computer-aided design (CAD) is being used more and more in the fashion design industry.

The fashion designer's next step is to take the rough sketch or model and develop a more specific working pattern. The designer will then make a rough model of the design by creating a toile. This is made by sewing inexpensive material (like muslin) to make a rough model of the design. When this is placed on a mannequin-like dress stand, the designer can see how the material will drape or hang on a human form.

When the garment is complete, the designer will either modify, scrap or approve the design for showing in a collection.
