The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Fashion Designer


SMFR-IOSF_EN_Logo_R8This post about the fashion designer hobby was requested by a few people so here it is! I will tell you a little bit about how to do the hobby and the rewards you can get from it.

Who can be a fashion designer?


How can you be a fashion designer?

Firstly you need to have built the promotions r us store to buy the fashion studio, once you have brought the studio it will be put into your inventory, from there you can put it into one of your houses. Tap the studio to make a sim create a design.

Where can I be a fashion designer?

In any of your houses that have a fashion studio in them, or at a neighbours.

What are the fashion designer options?

  • Design Fashion-10 minutes
  • Work Overtime-1 hour
  • Tailor Chef-d’oeuvre-6 hours
  • Create Next Big Thing-12 hours

Each of the options increases your fashion skill level. Once you have completed the time an exclamation mark will appear above your sims head.

What are the fashion designer levels?

There are 6 levels, these are:

  1. Fashion Disaster
  2. Fashion Faux-Pas
  3. The Look
  4. Fashionista
  5. What’s Hot
  6. Fashion God

How do I collect clothing pieces?

To collect clothes you need to design fashions, everytime you design something you will receive a clothing piece. As you increase levels you will unlock new pieces to collect.

What clothing pieces are there to collect?

The pictures below will show you the clothing pieces you can collect:

simfashion1 simfashion2

Level 1 pieces are:

  • Brown Fishersims Hat
  • Fishersims Overalls
  • Gum Boots

Level 2 piece is:

  • Blue Overalls

Level 3 pieces are:

  • Striped Shirt
  • Red Boots

Level 4 pieces are:

  • Dress Pants
  • Leather Shoes

Level 5 pieces are:

  • Vest and Shirt Combo
  • Pink Dress

Level 6 pieces are:

  • Black Coat
  • Chichi Heels

What do I win?

The first time you find all the pieces you unlock the fashion outfits (you need to build the costume and swim store then you will find them in the outfits section, the female outfit costs S9,500, the male outfit costs S8,500)

The second time completing unlocks the lucky hat (which can be found in the wardrobe for adults under hats)

Further times you will receive 3 LPs

I can’t find one of the pieces, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click design again at the top of the fashion designer list to start over.

  1. Thanks so much for writing this blog. Lifesaver

  2. Should I use 1 hour or 6 hour option to find the chichi heels? Does it increase my chances using a longer time?

  3. I finished 2 time. Where can I find lucky hat

  4. I didn’t press the start collection again button at the bottom. Is there anyway to start the collection over with a new Sims or am I just stuck? I did the same thing when I completed the Horse Tricks Hobby, I didn’t click the start collection again button.

  5. I’m at end of level 3 but keep getting the same items over and over. What’s up with that?

  6. It really helped me. Thanks

  7. How is that I got level 4 and 5 things when I’m a level 2 for the fashion studio

  8. Luv your blog! Thnx so much!

  9. Amazing blog. I have a problem with my fashion hobby. I was doing 10-minute actions all the time but once I reached level 5 I don’t seem to go any further if I do only 10-minute actions. Is my best choice 1 hour now?

  10. I have completed the long hair and the dress and man suit lines, plus the green hat one and have completed the 3lp once now for fashion studio… I have the hat in the wardrobe option, but the dress, heels, jacket and mans outfit and shoes did not show up… Glitch? I can even see the hat in the salon… I dont know whats happened…?

  11. Does getting the lucky hat have any benefit?

  12. You should try ghost hunting. You can do it in less than 4 minutes and get LPs for completed sets faster!

  13. Your Sims freeplay article for the hobby “fashion designer” mentions place that you call the “Fashion & fancy dress shop”. I can’t find ANY building (or place to build either) with that name? Does it have a different name, & what is it next to?

  14. I was wondering about the purpose of the lucky hat?

  15. So I just completed the entire set, and it says I got the new outfits, but I don’t know how to access them? Like I would click the wardrobe to change their outfits and (I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the new update) there’s nothing new there. Thank you c:

  17. You’re right. The lucky spin was a waste of LPs. I will keep trying to complete the sets and get the long hair styles!!😄

  18. Can you help? My sim is on level one fashion designer, and I have completed the first set of clothes. How do I get other sets of clothes? I keep getting the same!!!!

  19. Is there any way of wearing these items you make?

  20. I finished the set but have not built the custom & swimming store if I reset the hobby will I loose the fashion outfit till next time I finish the set or I can reset and then build the store and they will be there?

  21. How ti get complete fashion designer sims freeplay
    and how to get long hair event unlock??

  22. If you quit a hobby, I know you lose all your experience, but do you lose the physical items you’ve won? Like outfits?

  23. Sorry, but I’m not sure to build the Costiume stor, because I need money for the Mall. Are this outfits free?? Like wedding outfits. I get wedding outfits free in salon, but I’m not sufe for this outfits… If theye aren’t free, than I’ll stop doing the hobby because I don’t have Coustiume and Swim store😥

  24. I can’t get any items other than the top row of the collection, the brown fishermen hat, overalls, and gumboots. I have been playing for 3 hours. I have even had 3 people creating fashion. I have tried the different times of making items like the 10 minute and the hour one. I get the same result. Is it really this hard or is there a glitch?


    please read before asking

    Where can I find the Promotions R Us store?

    The location of the promotions r store can be found on my sim town map post

    Is there any way of wearing the items you make?
    You unlock the suit and the dress rows items once you complete the collection for the first time

    I have completed the collection for the outfits but they are not in my wardrobe, why?
    You need to build the costume and swim store then you will be able to find them in the wardrobe for adult sims

    What is the point of the lucky hat?
    It is just for your sims to wear

    Why haven’t I found a certain clothing piece yet?
    Some take longer to get than others so just keep going, you will find them eventually!

  26. I’m not sure if there’s anything that can be done, I’m just curious if anyone else had this problem or knows how I can fix this. I’ve been doing this hobby for at least a month…I’ve been level 6 for quite some time and I still have not gotten the last item which is the chichi heels. I’ve tried doing the 10 min option over and over and over again. I’ve done the 1 hour option all day as often as I can and still can’t get it. Is this a glitch or am I just really unlucky? Has anyone else had this problem?

    • This isn’t a glitch, you are just unlucky, unfortunately the heels are rare so they take longer to find, all you can do is keep going, I know it is frustrating but you will get it one day!

  27. (OT) If I didn’t finish the quest on time, I will not be able to get the free limited items. Is this the same for all quests?

    I’m at level 26 and I’m still on the Sous Judgmental quest, I always run out of time😦 Your blog is really helpful, though. Thanks for this!

    • You have to complete quests in the time limit to get the time limited prize, but you can still complete quests once the time limit it up.
      I’m glad it helps, you’re welcome!

  28. I really love your blog! It really helped a lot.
    I just want to share that before, I was disappointed that I did not get the Latin villa template and wasted so many LPs… Then I’ve search and read your blog and been following your tips eve since.. especially the hobbies and quests. Now I have unlock vaulting, horse jumping, broomstick flying, breakdancing, completed the infant outfits, and had a pet dragon🙂 All I did is to keep going just what you advised.. even though I did not get some of the limited prizes, I keep on playing😀 big thanks to you🙂

  29. Hi,I just completed the collection once. I have already built the costume and swim center. But I couldnt find the outfits anywhere. I checked in the costume store and also their wardrobes..but the outfits couldnt be found. Do you have any idea where they might be?
    Also, I really like your blog! It is seriously so helpful!🙂

  30. Can I have more than one if I can where can I find it

  31. Hi! Do you know which fashion designer option is the most efficient (time wise) in increasing the percentage of a level? I currently need to level up to be able to unlock a clothing piece, and can’t decide if I should do the 10 mins option repeatedly or the 12 hr option instead. Thanks in advance! I love your blog btw. :))

    • The 10 minute option increases your percentage very slowly each time so I usually do the longest option but if you have the time to do the shorter options you can see the percentage it increases on the first few times so you can work out how many times you would need to do it using that option to level up to see if it is worthwhile doing that option compared to another one but if you are going to be busy throughout the day stick to the longest option

  32. Hello, I can’t find the dress in the costume store after collecting all the clothing pieces😦

  33. Occasionally there are free fan created outfits. How do you create a submission or get the outfits?

  34. What do you get each time the sim levels up?

    • First time you level up you unlock the new fashion designs to be able to complete the collection, further times
      Reaching level 2- 250XPs
      Reaching level 3- 500XPs
      Reaching level 4- S750
      Reaching level 5- 10,000 added on to town value
      Reaching level 6- 1LP

  35. Do you need the costume & swim store to finish the hobby? I have 1 item left to unlock and have been working on it back to back for days, and have not gotten it.

  36. Hi I’m currently doing the hair botique event and all by sims are level 6 and I got all clothes in like 1 day and a few hours but I just can’t get the heels and days are passing and I’m trying to get atleast 3 or 4 of the hair. Please help

    • If your sims are level 6 then try to do the 10 minute option over and over, the heels can take a long time to get so doing the 1 hour or 6 hour options is going to take you even longer to get them.
