If you are a fashionista looking to destress or find something new to do, there are few better ways of doing this than getting a hobby. The hobbies you choose do not have to have anything to do with fashion, but rather a way of getting your creative juices flowing. Below, we will look at some creative hobbies for fashionistas that can even be turned into business opportunities.

Flower Arranging

If you love flowers, then this is the hobby for you. Flower arranging is for fashionistas who love colours, patterns and coming up with unorthodox designs. Getting started with this hobby is easy if you have a garden at home. If you do not, you can always get cheap flowers from a nearby flower shop for your creations.

When you get really good at it, you can start a business where you sell your designs to be used in weddings, parties, and much more. This way, your new hobby can bring in some extra money.



Photography is both an interesting and fun hobby to get into if you are a fashionista, especially if you want to pursue a career in fashion or design. Photography can help you showcase some of your designs on social media. All you have to do is get the right camera, ensure the area is well lit, and take the photographs. If you do not have someone to model your designs for you, you can always get creative and use half and full body forms. These are mannequins that are used by tailors to fit clothing but that does not mean you cannot use them to showcase your creations.

A lot of people do not pursue photography because they think it is expensive. It can be if you are producing professional photographs, but it is inexpensive if you are just taking photographs for your portfolio or social media accounts. All you need is a good camera, which a lot of good smartphones have these days, some way to light the scene, and an interesting and beautiful backdrop.

Jewellery Making

How would it feel to attend an event wearing jewellery you made yourself? If this sounds like something you are interested in, then jewellery making is the hobby for you. You can find a lot of inspiration online, including on websites such as Etsy. You can then use these designs to come up with some of your own. If you do not know where to start, there is so much online content on this hobby to get you started. In addition, you should also get some beads and a jewellery making tool kit to make things easier on yourself.

Hand Lettering

Hand lettering is slow and relaxing and it needs a lot of concentration. This sounds like coming up with your own clothing designs! It’s a fun hobby to get into as it is easy to learn, but it requires some patience. You can use some of your creations on your website, marketing material or on social media. This hobby can also be turned into a business.

Video Creation

As with photography, this is another hobby that can come in handy if you choose to pursue a career in fashion and design. If you do not have your own designs, you can always film interesting parts of your life, and when your designs come in, you can showcase them on your platforms too. Video creation is also a great way to create a portfolio. Your video creation skills can be combined with your keen eye for design and turned into a lucrative business.

Fashionistas who are looking for something extra to add to their resume or repertoire can try new hobbies. There are lots of hobbies that will utilize the skills you already have and some that will teach you new skills. Ensure the hobbies you choose are fun, engaging, and can be turned into something more like a business.
