At The Online Fashion Design Institute, we don’t just teach fashion design; we encourage every student to access and nurture their own natural sense of flair and creativity. We also teach the technical and practical skills necessary to translate those design ideas into reality. Both versions of our course, the International Certificate Course and the Australian Accredited MST50119 – Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Merchandising, are up-to-date and comprehensive, covering every aspect of fashion design.


The Online Fashion Design Courses are delivered online and are designed to be self-paced. The Certificate Course consists of 12 modules + 12 assignments and students are provided with 12 months to complete the course. The Diploma Course consists of 13 modules + 13 assignments and students are provided with 18 months to complete the course. Extensions can be purchased if extra time is required.



These courses provide students with exclusive access to over 20 hours of professionally shot HD video tutorials. These videos complement the course modules by explaining fashion design techniques and processes as well as demonstrating historic, iconic, and on-trend fashion designs.
