DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DESIGNERS    As per every email, I'm going to get straight to the point. All designers do not come the same. I'm going to break down the different types of "designers" and how their clothing lines work. The Creative Director: The person is a creative. They can imagine a clothing line, a feeling, and a world. They might even be able to sketch. They hand a sketch and a purpose over to the head of the production team.
