Gwen Stefani has won the hearts of music fans for over a decade, but it was in 2005 that she began dappling in the world of fashion and apparel design. As she explained to the Associated Press, "Music and fashion, it all comes from the same place of creativity," and luckily for Stefani her talent is a proven success in both artistic forums.

But what sets Stefani apart from the growing number of celebrities trying their hand at the sewing machine? Perhaps it's the fact that her hands actually do some of the work. And, as with any successful fashion design career, a healthy budget for marketing and advertising doesn't hurt.

Fashion and Apparel Design with Distinctive Style
J Lo, Jessica Simpson, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce Knowles have all given fashion design and marketing their best shot - some even rather successfully. But when Stefani came out with her line L.A.M.B., acronym for Love Angel, Music, Baby, it became clear to consumers and fashion editors alike that this collection was different. For a celebrity musician who has knocked Kate Moss off the top of Britain's best-dressed list in Harpers & Queen, it's clear that for Stefani, hitting the high notes is a gift in fashion design as well as in music.

Fashion Design School: Making and Marketing a Look
For Stefani, making and marketing her own fashion label made sense, after all, she already had a distinctive sense of style and a vision for own collection. But if you're not a famous pop star like Stefani, fashion design school is a great place to learn the basic tenants of apparel design, developing collection concepts, and eventually marketing your own clothing line. After all, if Jessica Simpson can churn out her own line, imagine the possibilities with a little fashion design school experience!
