Apart from analysing the current fashion trend, fashion designers have to understand the fashion design principles for creating aesthetic values. The design should also meet the needs of the target group/occasion and be able to express the individuality and creativity of the designer. Cultural and social changes affect the fashion trend and how people perceive aesthetic values and related design principles. What is considered to be beautiful one year may not be considered the same way a few years later.
