Qa_faqs | What is the University of Fashion and how does it work?

The University of Fashion is an online library filled with hundreds of well-produced video lessons covering all aspects of fashion design.

Traditional fashion schools charge a pretty hefty tuition payment per semester or even per class. They also make you travel to classes which are often scheduled at inconvenient times.

The University of Fashion is different. We work by subscription. For an amazingly low fee that's literally thousands of dollars less than a quality school's single semester of classes, you will be able to access all of the University of Fashion's many hundreds of lessons, anytime you want, 24/7, on-demand, from anywhere, as many times as you want.

The University of Fashion provides fashion lectures and "how-to" demonstrations that are virtually identical to those offered by best fashion schools in the world. In fact, all of our video lessons are taught by fashion school professors or industry professionals.

Our lessons teach you everything you need to know about fashion design. We offer lessons on draping, pattern making, sewing, fashion art, knits, business, CAD fashion art, CAD pattern making, product development, accessories, lectures and more!

Here's how it works:

  • Take a look at our huge list of lessons and pick one that interests you
  • Buy the tools & supplies you'll need to complete that lesson. (You will be able to buy most of the tools and materials you'll need from our own, on-site store!)
  • Watch the lesson you chose and follow along with what the teacher is doing, making the same project, yourself. If you mess up something, don't worry! Just rewind the lesson video a little bit and start again (You can't do that at typical school!)
  • When you're done, marvel at your creation or, even better, wear it, sell it or give it to a friend!

Oh, and yes, you can write us with questions about our lessons all you want.  A professional designer will respond to your questions, usually in about a day.

A University of Fashion subscription gets you unlimited access to all of the video lessons on our website, all of them. At US$220 per year, we cost many thousands of dollars less than the tuition you'd pay for just about any other source of quality fashion education.
