Calvin Klein, Oscar De La
Renta, and Ralph Lauren
weren't born designers. They
had to make their way up the
ladder just as in any
profession. Fashion desinging
is a difficult field to go into.
Not only do you have to have
the gift of designing but it also
necessary to have confidence
and determination. Kim
White, a student at University
of Michigan, has all those
characteristics plus an ad-
Daily: When did you get star-
ted in fashion design?
Kim White: I started fashion
designing when I was a kid. When
I was in kindergarten my mom
used to sew. I used to watch her
but she would never let me use
the machine. Instead, I would cut
out fabric and put it over my head
or make belts. I used to do this all
the time for show and tell. All
thoughout school I made my own
clothes. I made my own skating
outfits, but it was not until
my senior year in high school that
I got serious about it.
D: Why designing over other
forms of art?
K: I always wanted to be an ar-
tist and took classes in painting
and drawing, but later on I
decided that I felt much better
when I was sewing. In fashion
design, you do a lot of different
things. If I was a painter, I would
just paint a picture and that
would be the end of it but with
fashion design you get an idea,
draw it, then you have to take
care of the engineering probelms.
After you finish that, you then
have to pick the fabrics and the
colors, and then try to market it.
D: What kind of people do you
K: I basically design for
younger contemporary women. I
am trying to explore wild and
more conservative clothing. The
type of women that I would like to
design for are for them women to
express themselves but in good
D: What are your next im-
K: This summer I want to try to
market by clothing. Marketing is
a very tricky thing. People either
want mass-produced items or
clothing by a famous designer.
Also, what I really want to do this
sumer is open up a small
boutique or share a space
somewhere to show off my stuff.I
want to do this not necessarily for
Deople to buy my clothing but so
.t they can see it.
D: What do you think the new
fashion trends are going to be?
K: I think that the new trend is
body conscious: tights, stirrups,
body-close clothes. Basic things
are going to be in blacks and
whites. Less Madonna-style stuff
like gaudy bracelets or layers
and layers of garbage will be in.
