Six research questions were addressed in line with the objectives of the study. The research design employed to elicit information was simple survey. A five point scale structured questionnaire in line with the research questions was validated by 5 validators, instruments was pretested on 10 Fashion designers from Ikot Ekpene and Uyo who did not form part of the final work.

The data were analyzed using mean statistics to answer the six research question; t-test was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The result were analyzed and presented in tables. The result revealed that line, shape, form and texture of fabric were elements of design available to the designers. They also utilized the following design elements- line, texture of fabrics, and colour in the designing. They also took into consideration the principles of design, namely proportion, rhythm, balance and harmony during designing. The study also identified 15 factors that account for non utilization of the elements of design. Methods of application of the elements of design and problem encountered in the use of the elements of design by apparel manufacturers were identified. The result also showed that the four hypotheses formulated and tested using t-test statistics to know the mean score responses of urban and rural respondents in the research questions were all accepted. Furthermore all the t-calculated values were less than t-value of 1.96. Any difference that existed between the pair of opinion was not statistically significant.
