Textile designers create designs for printed, woven and knitted fabrics. A textile designer may work with teams of designers and purchasing staff for design agencies or as a freelancer. Communication skills are essential for teamwork and for translating clients’ ideas into sketches and samples. To stay current and produce marketable designs, textile designers also attend trade shows.
While most textiles designers are employed in the fashion industry, they may also be able to find jobs in interior design, where their work may include patterns for rugs, furniture, bed linens and towels. Designers are likely to specialize in printed, knitted or woven fabrics, and their job duties may include a variety of different activities. For example, as described in a job posting, a company that is looking for textile designers to develop fabrics, yarns, trims and prints may also expect them to supervise and manage production time lines, create artwork and test materials. Designers may find employment with major retailers or product developers for apparel or interior textiles. They may also find work as style directors, teachers, fashion critics, design writers or independent designers.
