Overview

About the Level 3 Dress Making and Fashion Design Certificate

There’s no denying that our lives revolve around fashion. Increasingly, who we are is determined by what we wear. However, if you have ever found that the shops don't stock the clothes you would want to buy; this could be the distance learning course for you. A course in fashion design at learndirect will feed your creativity and help you create the fashion of the future.

This home learning course teaches you how to nurture your ideas through to the point of production. The engaging units teach you about fabrics, stitches, bodices and different methods of production. They also cover things like layouts and cutting and the importance of ethics and awareness in the industry.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at anyone who wants to work in the fashion industry. If you love your wardrobe and cannot wait for the new lines to come out, this could be perfect for you. This online course is also suitable for individuals with an interest in making their own clothes for separate purposes.

At learndirect we do not ask you to have any prior design experience before enrolling on this course. It is an entry level course and anyone is free to enrol. All we ask is that you are motivated to learn and have a way to access our online portal.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this course you may decide to continue your studies. Past students have gone on to complete further home study fashion courses at learndirect. Some students even go on to study fashion at a university level.

Alternatively you may choose to find work straight away. Those who do will be eligible to apply for a whole range of jobs. Self-employed and employed opportunities are available. Jobs in the fashion industry include but are not limited to:

  • Dressmaker
