on Friday,April 29,2011 19:04


Famous Italian fashion designer Donatella Versace talks about the impact of singers and actresses becoming designers and how it effects professionals in her field. She believes that the reason that singers and actresses' designs are popular is not due to creativity but because of the marketing of the products, according to the Reuters.

"Some of these collections are for cheaper, mass market fashion," Versace said to the news source. "I don't think that creativity is there."

Versace has been a designer for 20 years is the creative director of the Versace company, that was originally her brothers until he passed in 1997.

Prospective fashion designers may earn up to $62,000 in a design firm, which was the average annual salary in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, the individuals who are well known internationally and work for themselves can make a great deal more. The top ten percent of fashion designers in 2008 made an annual salary of over $125,000.
