Accessory design begins with research. Designers assess current trends and predict what will be in style in the upcoming seasons. They use trend reports to decide on colors, fabrics and shapes for their accessories.

To create sketches for their designs, accessory designers generally begin with hand sketches, but they also might utilize computer-aided design (CAD) software. Designers produce prototypes of their accessories and make modifications before going into production.
