I'm thinking of taking some online courses from The Academy of Art, but for $700 dollars, I'm starting to rethink my options. Has anyone done any online courses from them?

^Is that the one in San Francisco? I was just going to say that they have home courses, and it seems to be a pretty good school. I think its only in Fashion Merchandising though.

I would never, ever, ever recommend taking any patternmaking classes on your own, lol.

And I have to second the 9 Heads book.....it was one of my textbooks for school (the writer is also a professor) and its amazing and worth the money.

Yeah it's the one in San Francisco. I got accepted into the school, but sadly I cannot fly over there. I really wanted to take some fashion journalism classes just to practice writing about runway collections. :p

The Fashion Campus is a little bit expensive for what they really offer, if you prefer the home school you should buy a lot of fashion drawing and illustration books in Amazon and begin with it.

I have this book called "Ilustración de Moda. Dibujo Plano". It's in Spanish, but that's not a problem because it contains only a few words, it's mostly composed by draws. It's for beginners and it only features separates (kind of croquis), and techniques (pleats,drapes, etc...) but it's still OK to learn the basics. Really cheap 25€.

Summer Programs
I was wondering if anyone had ever taken a summer intensive on fashion design. I want to take one at Otis this summer and wanted to see what people thought.

i took one at parsons in ny. it was really good if you wanted to get a glimpse of taking classes in fashion design & whether it was something you wanted to get into when you're applying for college.

The fashion program is quite strong. The students show at NYFW which I don't think the other schools (FIT, Parsons) are able to do. I went here, but not for the fashion program. I've been happy with my education.

hmmm fashion school seems expensive
I really want to learn fashion design however, after looking into this thread the only way for me to get a degree in fashion design is online (considering I'm suck in a place with NO art school of any type in range). I keep seeing the academy of art, sf as the place to get a degree online but its really expensive! I don't think I can even get financial aid since I already exhausted it at my formal college of nearly 5 years. In any case I'm going to talk to their financial person today but I doubt I'd get any (I'm already 20k in debt).

So with that, I was wondering in the event I don't go to a fashion school what books do I buy to study fashion design? What areas do I need to know like color, history,pattern making, etc....I have a sewing machine and have a book on sewing but that's it. I'm fairly good at drawing as well albeit I haven't tried fashion illustrations. Basically to sum it up, what's the poor man's guide to fashion design?
