I saw people while talking or writing sometime begin the sentence with in order to and some time they use in order to at the end.

I often get confused when to use it in the beginning or at the end of the sentence. Can anyone please help me understand.

In order to choose the best design I met a design and he advised me to pick the one that reflect the design that I have on one of my clothes.

I believe you are essentially asking about the difference between:

a) "In order to X, someone did Y"
b) "Someone did Y in order to X"

Both patterns are possible. There is little difference in actual meaning, but pattern (a) may place more emphasis on the "in order to X" part.

There are various small mistakes throughout your sentences.

Um, when you do not want to place more emphasis on the "in order to" part.

In order to choose the best design I met a designer and he advised me to pick the one that reflects the design that I have on my clothes / on one of my shirts/dresses/whatever.

In order to = To get to x, z must be done as required by rule. Sometimes, "for someone" is inserted between the idiomatic phrase to personalize the case. My understanding is this: The X to Z ( as used in previous posts) pattern can be reversed and still retain the same core meaning, relatively speaking.
A -In order [for you] to add a story on top of your property, you must apply for a building permit as required by law.
B -You must apply for a building permit as required by law in order [for you] to add a story on top of your property.

In example A , the green highlighted portion is the main clause, followed by a comma and a subordinate clause.
In B, The order is reversed and the entired sentence can exist without a comma.

After I hit "post" in my last post, I realized, I made a hasty mistake and would make to a correction.
In example A, the green highlight is not the main clause but an adverbial phrase modifying the main clause in black.
Ok thanks for making the corrections in my sentences Emotion: smile
Ok thanks for your explanation, I understood the concept but I still have few more questions for.

What difference does the "in order to" creates when used in the beginning of the sentence and in the middle of the sentences.

Which format is most commonly used while speaking or writing?

I heard that in order to is most commonly comes in the second part of the sentence, how far it is true?

I usually use in order to in the beginning while speaking or writing about something in third person, what do you think?

As I mentioned earlier, both forms are used. You are correct, " in order to ..." is more common idiomatically speaking. The phrase basicaly means " as needed ".
In order to meet a 15% production increase next year, we are planning to hire two more workers. The reciprocated form can be used without a comma. Please note, the underlined is still a subordinate clause functioning adverbially.
