Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Fashion Designer is a fashion-themed social game played exclusively on Facebook. It is tied into the MallWorld Facebook game by the same developer. Players build a fashion empire by designing dresses to suit different clients' demands. Players can speed up the game by purchasing Facebook Credits or asking friends for help. While the game will appeal to players younger than 13, Facebook requires kids to be at least 13 to sign up for an account.

What's it about?

In FASHION DESIGNER, players become the owner of a fashion boutique. Players accept jobs to make dresses for clients by incorporating the features they ask for, such as making the dress strapless, using a certain color palette, or incorporating specific designs like geometric shapes. Once a design is finished, players can see how it looks on a female model performing different animated poses. Dresses put on display can earn positive ratings and Design Cred from other players, which unlocks new \"Looks\" and jobs. Dresses can also be displayed for other players to view and rate, and sold in the player's MallWorld store.

Is it any good?


Fashion Designer boasts hundreds of color palettes, dress kits, graphic prints, and accessories to choose from to create thousands of fresh and attractive styles. As is typical of most Facebook games, however, certain exclusive wardrobe pieces can only be purchased with Facebook Credits, so players' choices are somewhat limited unless they're willing to pay real money. Fashion Designer is a colorful and stylish supplement to MallWorld, but also stands on its own as a fun social game for budding fashionistas.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can also talk about style. What factors decide if something is "in" or "out" of fashion? How have our ideas about what is fashionable changed over time?

  • Families can also talk about playing simulation games. Do you think you learn something by playing them?
