Learn fashion design online from professionals - the largest online fashion design library in the world

  • The first online fashion design and business video library
  • Lesson taught by fashion college professors & industry professionals
  • Subscriptions include unlimited access to all fashion videos

HIGH QUALITY VIDEO LESSONS

The University of Fashion’s library contains hundreds of lessons demonstrating every facet of fashion business and fashion design, e.g. draping, pattern making, fashion art, product development, CAD, sewing, fashion business, knits, lectures and much more.

Our lessons are organized by Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced to both educate beginning fashion students as well as experienced, professional fashion designers and home sewers looking to expand their skills.

TAUGHT BY PROFESSIONALS

Our lessons are taught exclusively by fashion college professors and fashion industry professionals.

A SERIOUSLY GOOD VALUE

The University of Fashion works by subscription. A single flat fee allows you to access all of our lessons, hundreds of them, for only a few cents a day. You will never find so many, high quality fashion lessons at a better value...anywhere.

WE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT INTO MAKING OUR LESSONS EASY-TO-FOLLOW

Our video lessons explain how to do everything yourself, step-by-step.

Some of our videos are short, e.g. 10 minutes or so long. But, most are longer, i.e. an average of 30-40 minutes long, with some that are well over an hour long.

TOOLS AND SUPPLIES

Each of our How-To lessons comes with a list of the supplies and tools you’ll need to create that lesson’s featured project.

If you don’t have some or all of the supplies you’ll need to complete a particular lesson, simply click on that tool on that lesson’s Video Playback page, or go to Fashion Design Tools under our “Resources” menu tab. From either place, you can buy the tools and supplies you need immediately, directly from our website!

CLEARLY VISIBLE AND UNDERSTANDABLE DEMONSTRATIONS

Our lessons are professionally produced in a large, well-lit studio using professional videographers and sound technicians operating high quality camera, lighting and recording equipment.

All of our lessons are taught from the designer’s perspective, i.e. looking down at your work as you would when creating something, yourself. This is a much better way to learn than watching a demonstration in front of you, where you can only see what the teacher is doing from a backwards or “flipped” perspective.

HEAR WHAT OUR TEACHERS ARE SAYING, CLEARLY

All of our lessons are produced with a separate voiceover track timed to exactly correspond to a teacher's actions on-screen. You can always hear and understand every single step in a University of Fashion lesson. No long, boring pauses. No mistakes. No do-overs.

MANY USEFUL "EXTRAS"

Many of our lessons include helpful graphics and downloadable files to help you understand key concepts, make tricky calculations or customize your project for different sized models.

DO YOU CURRENTLY ATTEND A FASHION SCHOOL?

We are a big supporter of fashion schools. Many of our subscribers use our video lesson library and other resources to help them find and apply to a good fashion school. Under our Resources menu, we provide an extensive list of the world’s best fashion schools, along with links to their websites.

Does your fashion school already subscribe to the University of Fashion? If yes, then lucky you! You’ll get all of our resources for free! This will help you get the most from your education. If not, ask your school librarian to get a subscription for your whole school.

How we can help you in school

If you’ve ever missed a key class, then you know it’s impossible to reconstruct the demonstration you missed that day. Sure, you can borrow another student’s notes. But words simply can’t describe an experienced teacher’s physical motions. But, the University of Fashion can really help! Chances are, we have a lesson that comes pretty close to what your professor demonstrated. But unlike an in-class demonstration, you can re-play our demonstration over and over again until you fully understand it. This can be the difference between getting an A or a C when the term ends.

Many thousands of students from the best fashion schools in the world have viewed our lessons to supplement their formal fashion education and to help them ace their homework and special projects.

TESTS AND DEGREES

The University of Fashion doesn’t make you take exams or tests. We don’t award formal degrees. We focus all of our energy on creating useful fashion lessons and resources.

Frankly, we believe that the best way to learn fashion design is from a competent teacher at a school or a professional designer who can demonstrate important skills right in front of you and, maybe most important, answer your many questions, right on the spot.

But, if you can’t afford a formal fashion education or if you just can’t physically travel far from home to attend a fashion school, we are, hands down, your best alternative, both in terms of the quality of our education and our very, very affordable subscription cost!
