Fashion design superstars may make hundreds of thousands, even millions of dollars, but entry level fashion designer salaries are far from the million dollar mark. North American fashion designers with approximately three to five years of experience can earn between $35,000 and $55,000. As with any profession, when you move into more senior positions, you can expect your pay to increase.
A fashion design career takes persistence, dedication, and of course, a love for fashion. An entry-level position can certainly pay off in the long run.
