I can’t speak for others, only for myself. When it comes to your job, whatever it is, you tend not to focus on the grand scheme of things and only on the day to day minutiae, as it were. I rarely think of myself as a fashion designer; I make clothes. My day involves sketching, drawing pattern pieces, cutting fabric around them, sewing, putting a collection together, doing inventory, PR, holding fittings for my couture clients, running down to the boutique every now and then to make sure everything’s going smoothly etc.
