Thanking u and looking forward for ur reply…!!

Hi,
Well, its always worth a try to follow your dreams. Coming back to your queries, it is very common for designers to be self employed. If you are good at your work, have capital and knack for business, you can always start 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, express your ideas, follow fashion, and most importantly don’t hold back your thoughts. And be open to sleepless nights and fatiguing work load.

Regards,
Purushu.
