  THE irony is to find a niche in the 
  market place and create your very
  own MBA in fashion.Any successful
  fashion designer or creative director
  who wants to become a CEO of a fast
  growing company will tell you that 
  to start out in the fashion world
  is probably the most difficult. No 
  person can gaze into a crystal ball
  and clearly predict his or her future.
  You will find a need for recognition.
  You need to be comfortable operating
  in a dynamic environment with some
  or a little experience and may not 
  have learned as yet about changing
  winds. 
  A successful leader needs to be a 
  natural risk-taker who is comfortable
  operating without much structure in
  the beginning in an ever-changing
  environment. They must be willing to
  roll up their sleeves have multiple rolls
  and hire people with valuable 
  experience both creative and practical
  separating the creative team from the
  accountant as mixing the two could
  create a destructive environment.
  Clashing of personalities in any work
  environment is a bad thing.
  Over communicate with your team of
  creatives as you need to talk to them
  constantly about all issues. This can 
  be done in the weekly company 
  meeting or one-on-one in your office
  or over drinks at work.Emphasize
  the positives and acknowledge the
  the negatives.
  Remember to tell people where they
  can improve.Sometimes members
  of your team feel anxious because 
  they know they are not doing 
  something right but do not know 
  how to ask for help.Get stuck in 
  there. Steer them away from a fall.
  Have fun as the leader of the pack 
  as people are always watching 
  the leader.
