A fashion designer designs clothes, basically. Sometimes they combine different styles together, and sometimes they make up entirely new stuff. They also just add accessories to stuff, like jeans for example, so that it would look better. They find new ways to attract customers to buy there stuff. They draw and design clothes also so that people can see the latest fashion statements and trends. Also, a fashion designer is a very general type of person. Someone can be a fashion designer without actually creating an actually outfit. They can just work in the fashion industry and be a fashion designer.
