Well, its always worth a try to follow your dreams, isnt it? Coming back to your queries, its a very common thing for designers to be self employed. If you are good at your work and have a good sense of starting a business, you can always eventually open a label, but working under someone else initially to gain experience is not a bad idea either. NIFT and NID entrances are mainly conducted to examine creativity. Though creativity is a relative subject, keep your mind open to inspirations and ideas. Think of out of the box ways to express your ideas, follow fashion trends, keep yourself up to date with fashion happennings, and most importantly go wild with your ideas, dont hold back your thoughts. Being creative is not an option but a necessity in this field. And dont shy away from hard work. Its the most constant and important thing in this field. Sleepless nights, tons of work are very common.
