Here is my best explanation:

'clothing' is the definition.
('dress' can be a synonym of 'clothe')

'design's altered comprising last of designer' is the wordplay.
'altered' indicates an anagram.
'comprising' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'last of' says to take the final letters.
The last letter of 'designer' is 'r'.
'designs' is an anagram of 'dessing'.
'dessing' placed around 'r' is 'DRESSING'.
