I have always wanted to attend a Fashion Design School, but life just didn't allow it. I am a fashion designer, but one who is self taught. Now I can polish my skills with classes from University of Fashion. I am starting my 3rd year with UofF and love it. My teachers are often from the same Fashion Design School I always wanted to attend. Being part of UofF has enabled me not only to learn new skills but to validate the skills I already have.

I was lagging behind in class and didn’t remember all the lessons my professor taught, so I went to the demos on University of Fashion for help. Thanks to the great demos I received a really good grade on the project!

These tutorials are incredibly empowering with all the know-how needed to go from novice to pro. They are taught by skilled professionals and the accompanying transcripts are great for thorough recaps. I love their video format and their precision visual close-ups with clear and methodical voice-overs explaining all that I was seeing. So many eureka moments for me as I am sure there will be for you, too. It's a must have for everyone that needs formal technical training in design and design-related fields.

Everyone in the fashion industry, whether a student, a hobby aficionado or a professional should have a great resource for reference and support. University of Fashion provides the "how to" at every level for the first timers or just a refresher for the experts. A must have asset.

The University of Fashion is an exciting new video library for anyone interested in fashion and the fashion industry. The how-to videos feature short, concise lessons that are focused on individual techniques. This valuable resource will be a useful tool for fashion students, professionals, and home-sewers.

University of Fashion is a big hit with Westchester Library System member libraries and their patrons. It’s a fabulous resource that has inspired new programming in the libraries and encourages creative makerspaces for patrons of all ages.

The University of Fashion is a wonderful resource for starting a fashion club or adding to existing art classes. It has everything you need from fashion "how-to" lessons to lectures on how to prepare a fashion college portfolio. We added a fashion show component to our annual fundraising gala, featuring our fashion club members' work and now the event is a hit!

I am writing to you to THANK YOU for all of the lessons that you made available on your site (especially for the pattern making and draping lessons). I always wanted to learn - I own couple of textbooks, however it is very hard to learn without an instructor. Your professional lessons were all I was missing. You are awesome!
- Lenka Murray
With legitimate professors from F.I.T., Parsons, and other esteemed fashion design schools leading the lessons, it’s the next best thing, at the very least. It’s certainly better than YouTube.

Thank you for sharing your videos and your adept knowledge with me. I am so happy to gain some insight into this new sewing world! My mission is to make my own clothes. When I was a girl my girlfriend's mom made all her clothes and they were so nice and I was so envious. Now that I am retired I have the chance to do that for myself and others. You have given me a much better understanding!

I just want to say that I am eternally grateful for this amazing site as it is truly helping me so much on my journey as a self-taught fashion designer! This concept of offering these courses online is easy for me to follow, and I love that I can pause and come back when I get more time to continue working. I just upgraded to 1 year as I know that I will learn so much! This is really the greatest thing that has happened to me in a long time and I thank you again!

In the changing world of education, the University of Fashion has created a valuable library resource for students, teachers and schools. Their online fashion videos are a must-have in any school library. Not only do their how-to lessons provide a solid foundation in fashion design but their lectures on costume history, trend forecasting and the business of fashion provide a well-rounded, birds-eye view of the fashion industry.

I have been teaching middle and high school for over 30 years and today I stand in awe of this amazing fashion tool. The University of Fashion video series is simply too good to be true. Every video is factual and correct. As I watch each video, I say; this is exactly how I teach this. The plus for me is that I do not need to do a demo over and over again before students get it. They can just watch these videos and also broaden their skills even beyond my knowledge. I am so grateful to be introduced to the University of Fashion.
