Who is a fashion designer? 
A fashion designer is someone who loves to study fashion trends, sketch designs, select materials, and have a part in all the production aspects of their designs. They contribute to the creation of millions, if not billions of pieces of clothing and accessories purchased by consumers on a yearly basis.

Fashion designers attempt to design clothes which are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. They consider who is likely to wear a garment and the situations in which it will be worn, they have a wide range and combinations of materials to work with and a wide range of colors, patterns and styles to choose from.

While becoming a fashion designer may sound like a dream job, the role is demanding and the industry is competitive. As a fashion designer you will have to work on the design of clothing and fashion ranges.
what qualifications does a fashion designer need to obtain?

It’s always good to be prepared ahead of time to meet university admission requirements for a fashion Bachelor’s degree. Here are some key steps you can take:

  • Take a home economics classes to learn how to sew fast;
  • Draw and paint on your own to exercise your eye for colour and patterns;
  • Learn visual design software like Photoshop, CorelDraw, Xara, Serif DrawPlus
  • Read about art and fashion design from blogs, books, magazines.

Nowadays, graphics is everywhere, even in fashion. A pair of scissors and papers won’t do the trick.  While it’s not necessary to pursue a three-year long Bachelor’s in Design or Graphic Design, you should get some of the insights these study areas have to offer.

With all these above lessons, you will agree with us that we have more tailors in Cameroon than real fashion designers.

Vocal Training: 5 Tips to Improve Your Voice

This couldn’t be further from the truth. While your genetics play a role in determining the sound of your voice, the voice is an instrument that can be trained and learned like any other.

vocal-train

Some people mistakenly think that a singing voice is something you’re either born with or without. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While your genetics play a role in determining the sound of your voice, the voice is an instrument that can be trained and learned like any other.

In this guide, you’ll learn 10 vocal training tips that you can use to improve the way your voice sounds. Whether you like to sing modern pop, opera, or any other style, these 5 simple yet effective tips will help you unlock your voice and sound better than you’ve ever imagined.

Warm up your voice to prevent injuries

When you sing, your vocal chords vibrate hundreds of times every second. Just like you’d warm up your muscles before working out, you need to warm up your vocal chords before you sing to prevent strains and injuries.warm

Warming up your voice is simple, and it only takes a couple of minutes. Start with some basic breathing exercises, breathing in and out using your mouth until your lungs are completely empty.

Once you’ve spent a minute practicing breathing, start singing scales to warm up your voice and get used to the notes you’ll be practicing. Two or three minutes of scales and arpeggios are enough to prevent most singing injuries.

Drink water to lubricate your vocal chords

Have you ever noticed how croaky your voice gets when your throat is dry? Your vocal chords move hundreds of times every second as you sing, making it vital to keep them properly lubricated like any other rapidly moving machine.

drink

Drink plenty of water while you sing to make sure your vocal chords stay wet and nicely lubricated. In addition to water, many singers swear by a mixture of lemon juice and honey for clearing their throats prior to singing practice.

Use the correct posture for singing

Great singers don’t sing from their mouth, but from their diaphragm. Unless you’re standing in the right posture, letting air flow freely through your throat and vocal chords is challenging and, in some cases, even impossible.

posture

Practice good singing posture by keeping your shoulders back, chest high, chin on a parallel angle to the floor, and your upper body held up nice and straight. Relax your muscles and stand up straight to allow air to freely flow through your vocal chords.

Practice using songs you know and like

Scales, arpeggios, and common practice routines get boring quickly. Instead of just practicing using common vocal training exercises, sing along to song you know and like to keep the art of improving your voice entertaining.

From pop songs to operas, let your own taste in music determine what material you use to warm up and train your voice. Keep in mind that many pop songs only cover a small register; try to find challenging pieces to keep you focused on improvement.

Use scales to quickly train your voice

Tired of singing pop songs? If your favorite songs aren’t enough of a challenge, you can increase your vocal range and unlock your true singing abilities by practicing scales that push your voice to its limits.

When you’re practicing scales, make sure you warm up adequately. Scales that push yo
