The mission of the University of Fashion is to inspire and support your creativity. If you’re a beginner, get started with our lessons on drawing the fashion figure so that you can put your design ideas on paper. View our introduction to draping lesson, the Basic Bodice Sloper, to learn the secret of designing 3D. Draft a sleeve for your bodice, by watching our Straight Sleeve Sloper pattern making lesson. And, if sewing is your interest, learn how to thread a sewing machine before trying your hand at sewing a variety of seam and hem finishes. Once you’ve mastered our beginner lessons you’ll be ready to move on to our intermediate lessons and eventually on to the advanced level. Be sure to checkout our Fashion Business Connections series to connect with what’s going on in the fashion industry and hear lectures from key industry leaders.
