Fashion industry 'constantly looking for new, young talent'
People must be passionate, talented and determined to work hard if they are to succeed as designers in the current fashion industry, according to one mogul.

Lorraine Candy, the editor-in-chief of Elle magazine, said that those designing the newest releases in hosiery in the future, such as stockings and socks, must put in the hours to succeed and have skills which many people already working in the industry may not possess.

She added that fashion wearers are getting much braver in their style, meaning the industry must match their expectations.

Ms Candy continued: "Individuality and a signature style is what marks people out - you must believe in the look you are creating and it can't be derivative or a 'copycat' look.

"Work out what you can do best and have a single minded vision about making that work."

She made her comments at Graduate Fashion Week in Earls Court last week, which showcased the work of 50 universities across 52 courses and approximately 22 university fashion shows.
