We recommend starting with a few of our fashion history lectures (“100 Years of Fashion Rebels & Revolutionaries”, “Keeping Up with the Joneses – Fashion History” and “Wheels, Reels, Automobiles – Fashion History”. Next, learn about fashion trends with “Trend Forecasting”, “Bodymetrics Bodyscanning” and “High Tech Textiles”. Then, try to get your arms around the all-important topic of color with these lectures: “Color Relationships” and “Color Theory –The Basics”. Next, focus on creativity with “How to Create a Process Book” and “Designer’s Inspiration & Portfolio”. And for heaven’s sake, don’t forget to learn how to sell yourself! Watch “Creating a Professional Fashion Design Portfolio” and “Portfolio Tips for Fashion College Admissions”.
