I will give a little background:
I have done my bachelors in fashion design from India (4 year under grad).
I got married 4 years ago and moved here in Washington DC with my husband who was already working here in an oracle company.
I have alot of work experience in this field in India. All legit certificates and references. Then I came here I was on spouse visa so I couldn't work. I volunteered in a non profit organization for disable children and designed event stage and company's brochures. After getting our green card I registered my own event management business and did 2 successful events. Somehow that wasn't that appealing to me. My passion is to do something in fashion feild. Along the way I was designing embroidered shirts for women and getting them shipped here and selling them at very low cost. Hardly left me with any profit.
In India I have worked with some good designers and then a garments company designing tshirts and kids clothes. Now that I can work legally I want to apply in a garments company as a designer (not a sales girl in a garment store).
Do you think I am good enough to apply in companies here? Like old navy, Charlotte Russe, Carter's etc? I was always hesitant that I will get rejected since I have not studied here. Money is tight so I can't peruse a degree here.
Where do I start? I want to do something here in DC, MD, VA area. Not relocate to new York or CA. I want to do designing in corporate office of any clothes store. Not work in the store.
Can someone pease guide me where and how do I start?
