Fashion designers held approximately 22,700 last year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). In order to be successful, these professionals often attend art school, which teaches them skills such as sewing and product merchandising. This career allows for creativity, and fashion designers can make any type of clothing.

For example, Aab, a fashion company from the UK, designs Hijabs, which are traditional head coverings worn by Muslim women. In celebration of Eid - a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the holy month of fasting - Aab is launching a line of Hijabs in stylish new hand-dyed prints.

The Pre-Eid collection also features a mixture of abayas and jilbabs for both work and special occasions. The hand-crafted garments include items made from organic cotton and pure silk.

This new collection also has a light and airy Kaftan with delicate hand embroidery along the neck line and cuffs. In addition to the new styles, Aab is introducing clothing in a new color called Gooseberries, which is a light purple.

According to the BLS, designers earned an average of $61,160 during the 2008 fiscal year.
