Fashion Design

our story.

For Ilonka S.P. - owner and director of the Austin School of Fashion Design, the opportunity to move to Austin was presented in 2010 encountering an artistic and fun environment that felt quite invigorating and inspiring for her fashion career. It was in 2016 when Ilonka took over the Austin School of Fashion Design, creating their signature program the 'Academy for young designers,' and continuing with the most fabulous Sewing and Fashion Summer Camp in Texas!

Academy for young designers


Classes are held year-round with summer camp being one of their busiest times of the year. Students of all ages can get trained in garment construction, pattern making, draping, fashion illustration, college prep and more! The school's super star program is the Academy for young designers, an exclusive class that's adding exciting fashion challenges during their ASFD signature fabulous Fashion Runway Events that showcase every Academy student creations at fantastic venues like the Bullock Museum of Texas in January of 2020.

It’s obvious that Ilonka cares about every student that walks through her door and mentors each one of them to reach whatever goal each student sets. Whether you’re a novice beginner or if you want to take your skills to a professional level, ASFD has a class for you. And don’t worry, ASFD isn’t just for kids, adult classes are available as well.
