Fashion designers are constantly on the search for inspiration and design possibilities. They also need to communicate with factories and buyers in technical terms.

What fashion professionals really need is a simple yet practical handbook that contains all the technical information in a straightforward, user-friendly manner. 

Technical terms are essential in the fashion industry

All these inspired the birth of FASHIONPEDIA.

What is FASHIONPEDIA?

FASHIONPEDIA is a visual fashion dictionary covering all the technical terms from style to material to production with illustrations and infographics. It encompasses rich, extensive information and yet is so easy to read. Whether you’re an industry insider or a fashion connoisseur, FASHIONPEDIA is all you’ll ever need to navigate the fashion scene.

Who is it designed for?

Fashion Designers

FASHIONPEDIA improves the productivity of fashion designers as it serves as a fashion archive for brainstorming ideas and at the same time a dictionary for all the technical terms to communicate with the development departments.

Fashion Buyers / Editors / Bloggers

Due to their job nature, they need to apply professional fashion terms such as style names, descriptions, parts and construction. FASHIONPEDIA provides an all-in-one solution for them.

Fashion Students

Students will benefit greatly from the content of FASHIONPEDIA. What they get is a fashion library in their hand covering all the common items and details as well as material and manufacturing knowledge.

Everyone

To those who are interested in fashion or thinking about stepping into the fashion industry, this easy-to-read dictionary is the book for you.

Visual Oriented - So Easy to Read

What sets FASHIONPEDIA apart from the others is its visual oriented layout. We understand designers communicate best in visual and images. That’s why we’ve converted all complex textile information into infographics and beautiful charts which make the information so easy to read, understand and remember.
