Tuesday, 08 October 2013
University of Fashion is the first-ever online fashion design video library launched to teach the art of fashion design. is the brainchild of Francesca Sterlacci, former chairman of the Fashion Institute of Technology’s fashion design program.

“With my many years as Chair of F.I.T.’s fashion design program, and designing my own collections, I understand what is needed to be a fashion designer. I wanted to offer a one-on-one experience while preserving the art and craft of fashion design and most importantly, I wanted to inspire!” says Francesca Sterlacci.

Accessible over the web, mobile devices and tablets, University of Fashion provides access to hundreds of easy-to-understand lessons, led by FIT and Parsons The New School for Design professors along with industry professionals. Supplemental to the lectures, the library provides a broad assortment of lectures on trend forecasting, color theory, fashion history, fashion shows, as well as tours of fashion museums, store events and other fashion venues. also offers free lesson transcripts, step-by-step lesson guides and a comprehensive list of all the best fashion resources for fabrics, tools, schools, books, museums and a dictionary of fashion terminology.
