About This Quiz

Do you think you're a fashionista? If so, you've probably run into this problem; your favorite designer has just dropped their latest collection, and there are several pieces that you absolutely must have in your life. The problem? Even though you live the glamorous life, your wallet can't keep up with your expenses. In most cases, the would-be fashionista would either get approval for a credit card or wait for those must-have pieces to be put on sale (which usually happens at the end of the season). But not you. You examine the pieces you like, head to the fabric store and attempt to recreate them for your collection. Sure, you're going to make mistakes, but you're having a blast playing with a needle and thread. Soon you're making your own clothes, and others are wanting you to create designs for them. You're starting to make a name for yourself, and you're unsure of the next step.

Even with all of these orders you're getting, you still feel like you could learn something from the fashion world. What better than a mentorship from the Council of Fashion Designers of America? Well, if you try to beat the steep competition on "Project Runway," this may be one of the prizes that could be yours. Where are you going to place? There's only one way to find out, and that's to take this quiz.
