No, you just need to reorganise it internally.

Good so far ...

> 4- at last use relocate on your working copy to change references in your local working copy.

No, you need to use switch here instead of relocate. Relocate is only
used when the repository itself is moved, perhaps to another server.
All you are doing is moving stuff inside the same repository.

> Now the design is moved. to add a tag:

It is better to make tags at the repository root level rather than
inside trunk. If someone checks out trunk then they would not expect
to get all the tags as well.

> 6- use tortoise repo bowser to add release_v1.0 folder inside tag    (Do I need to do this manually?)

No, this step is not required.

> 7- use tortoise branche/tag command to create a tag and point to     <svnrepofolder>/trunk/tag/release_v1.0.

branch/tag will create the directory for you, so point to
<repository>/tags/release_v1.0. If your repository will contain other
designs you might want to call it something like
<repository>/tags/New_design/release_v1.0, otherwise when you look at
the tags folder you see release_v1.0 but you don't know what project
it is.

A good way of testing this sort of thing is to create a temporary
local repository for testing and use file:// to access it. Put some
dummy content in it and then try doing the steps you want to test to
see if the result is what you expect.
