I would like to be a fashion designer over a model because being a model is a short lived career. Plus I like to eat and I'm not tall enough. I can become old and still be a designer.

Definitely a model. The life of a designer isn't as chic or creative as project runway makes it look.

Designer! Models freak me out.

Designer. I have too much creative energy to just walk down a runway.

I like to eat. Model is out.

I'm not tall enough to ever be a model, so I'd have to be a designer. I'd like designing more, get to actually be creative instead of just strutting down a runway.
