Design Management
-----------------
DESIGN LIST [search filter] [filter value] [search filter] [filter value] ... [APPEARANCE] [appearance filter value]
  - Search the list of designs you have access to. DESIGN LIST uses a series of filters that you can use to narrow the results.
  - If using the APPEARANCE filter, it must be the last filter in the filter list.
  VALID FILTERS:
   - Tradeskill <tailoring/metalworking/etc>
   - Status <unsubmitted/approved/unapproved>
   - Expiry (<X mos. to expiry>) -- displays designs with X months or fewer before expiry.
   - Preserved <true/false>
   - Pattern <#>
   - Granted <true/false>
   EXAMPLE: I want to search for a design within the tailoring tradeskill that has the word "dress" in the appearance:
     - I would use the search DESIGN LIST TRADESKILL TAILORING APPEARANCE DRESS.
     - This uses the Tradeskill and Appearance filters. Any number of filters can be used in one search, to progressively narrow the returned results.

DESIGN <#> DOCUMENT
