‘I DON’T DESIGN clothes. I design dreams.’

Ralph Lauren might have raised a few eyebrows with that famous line, but the US designer makes a good point.

The world of fashion design isn’t just about trends and colour palettes, it’s about making people feel like the best version of themselves, whether that’s in a haute couture gown or a cotton t-shirt.

Knowing how to create clothes that not only fit a person’s body type but their personality is no easy feat, which is part of the reason the world’s best fashion designers command such high prices for their work.

Reckon you’d have what it takes? Let’s start by seeing which world-famous designer you’re most like…
