    Creating my own "Fashion Design degree" experience

    Hello,

    I was originally looking to attend Parsons AAS for Fashion Design, but the cost was too high. Instead, I am looking to learn the basics of fashion design myself (color theory, etc.).

    Are there any books or websites you would recommend?

    Thanks
