The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Fashion Designer


Only Adults can be a Fashion Designer, to begin this hobby you need to buy the fashion studio from the promotions r us store and place it in one of your sims houses.

I cannot find it in my home store to place it? You need to look in your inventory under the hobby and career items section

I cannot place the fashion studio, it says its locked/ limited item, what do I do? You will have this problem if you try and place it from the new items tab, look in your inventory instead to be able to place the fashion studio in one of your sims houses.

You can buy as many as you want so you can have as many adult sims as you want completing this hobby at once

Once placed tap on it and select one of the options:

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

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the fashion collectibles. Every time your sims complete one of the options above their fashion hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once they reach 100% they will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the fashion collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage for each option:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL  10 minutes 1 hour 6 hour 12 hour
1-2 2% 12% 74% 150%
2-3 1% 11% 66% 133%
3-4 1% 8% 49% 100%
4-5 4% 24% 50%
5-6 2% 12% 25%

For example if you did the 12 hour option, you would need to do this 4 times or the 1 hour option 50 times to reach level 6 from level 5

NOTE: it says 150% but you will start from 0% at level 2

The next table shows you for each level what fashion collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Fashion Disaster Brown Fishersims Hat, Fishersims Overalls and Gum Boots are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Fashion Faux Pas Blue Overalls are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 The Look Striped Shirt and Red Boots are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Fashionista Dress Pants and Leather Shoes are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Whats Hot Vest and Shirt Combo and Pink Dress are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Fashion God Black Coat and Chichi Heels are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby (and they can do the shortest option to try and find the collectibles quicker!)

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed fashion designer collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are fashion outfits, lucky hat and 3LP:

  • The first time you complete the collection 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 unlocks the lucky hat (which can be found in the wardrobe for adults under hats)


  • From the third time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LP


Time Limited Hobby Events– the fashion designer hobby appears often in these events, to complete these you have to complete the fashion designer hobby a certain amount of times during the time limit to unlock all of the prizes, you can find a list of time limited hobby events here. If you want to complete these time limited hobby events then have one sim get to level six in this hobby before the next event starts so you only have to do the shortest option when the event begins!
