Join DesignPrep as we meet professional designers, learn about their careers and projects, and get hands-on by making our own designs.

Go behind the scenes and learn about fashion design from designers working in the industry. Where do they get their inspiration? How can you prepare for a creative career? What’s happening next in design? Then get creative designing your own garments and accessories.
