Austin School of Fashion Design (ASFD) provides students with the tools and necessary skills to create their own fashion designs.  ASFD aims to equip students with solid fashion design skills and the resources to move the student to the next level of their fashion career.   ASFD offers two Fashion Design Programs at an affordable tuition rate: the Certificate Program and the College Preparatory Program.  


ASFD’s Certificate Program trains aspiring designers whose goal is to work as an independent designer with their own line, or to be a part of a design company. Students will learn the  skills necessary in fashion design with our CORE CURRICULUM classes:

  • Garment Construction
  • Fashion Illustration
  • Pattern Development
  • Design Process & Development 


College Preparatory Program is for students that need to develop a portfolio for admissions to a Fashion Design school or university. This course will help students develop the skills to put together an impressive portfolio, and will strengthen their chances to succeed in getting accepted to the college of their dreams.


Specialty Courses are elective classes opened to ANYONE who seeks to strengthen their fashion design skills.  Specialty Courses change with each session.  Visit Academic Calendar for most current Specialty Courses.

Although ASFD is not an accredited institution, students that satisfactorily pass the program will be awarded a certificate and letter of recommendation.

Session II begins on Monday, November 3rd! 

We offer day (10-1pm) and evening (6-9pm) classes that meet twice a week on Mondays & Wednesdays or Tuesdays & Thursdays!
