Design Download

Launched on 30 May 2002

In 2002 SHOWstudio launched the first Design Download - a series seeking to demystify and democratise the fashion process by offering prestigious designer garment patterns to download for free. SHOWstudio viewers are gifted a unique opportunity to study, interpret and construct intricate runway pieces, and invited to submit the results to inspire future learners. In recent years chosen viewers have won prizes for their submissions, from original art to fashion films featuring their garment.
