The mini-game for the Fashionista involves avoiding three bombs at all costs!
The art of cool - or at least that is the impression of Fashion
that we get from William Gibson's most excellent novel, Pattern Recognition
. Seriously, you should read that - it is pretty darn spiffy for a form of entertainment that predates computer games by a bazillion years. Just saying...
Anyway, the point to this is that your Sim can drop by The Hobby Shop
in town and buy a Fashion
Design Studio Bench Set that they can then place in their home and, naturally enough, embark upon a path towards designing cool clothes!
Once the Studio is placed, your Adult
Sim can then use it to select from the following actions:
- Design Fashion: 4m / 16 XP
- Work Overtime: 1h / 165 XP
- Tailor Chef-d'oeuvre: 9h / 495 XP
- Create Next Big Thing: 1d / 990 XP
As they Design they will unlock the following six levels:
While your Sim does not get to keep them, the Fashion Collection is a set of 12 different clothing designs.
Fashion Design Collection
- Set 1: Brown Fisherman's Hat + Fisherman's Overalls + Gumboots = 750 XP
- Set 2: Blue Overalls + Striped Shirt + Red Boots = 1,000 XP
- Set 3: Dress Pants + Leather Shoes + Vest & Shirt Combo = 1,500 XP
- Set 4: Pink Dress + Black Coat + Chichi Heels = 2,000 XP
Design all 12 garments and gain access to all-new Fashion
Special Fashion Design Event
When your Sim finishes a design session this triggers a mini-game in which a series of light bulbs and bombs spin around in a window like a slot machines -- and you must tap the light bulb three times while avoiding the bombs to succeed in their creation!

Creating a Jobs
& Hobbies Courtesy House
is a really good idea for hobbies like Woodworking
Design, and the like since it puts all of your Sims
together in one easy to manage location. Just saying.
