Animal Crossing Label: how to complete Label's fashion challenge and rewards in New Horizons explained

Label Able is back in business!

Label Able is the middle Able sister and, in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, she has a special fashion challenge for you to complete. She is also one of the rotating visitors who will come to your island.

If you do decide to help Label in her fashion design research, then she'll happily give you a number of rewards.

First, however, you need to give Label a reason to visit your island.

How to unlock Label in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Label is one of the special visitors, like Wisp and Gulliver, who will randomly visit your island in New Horizons.

If you want Label to start visiting your island, then you must first help the Able Sisters open their tailor shop.

Once their shop is open, Label will randomly visit your island and can be found on the plaza in front of Residential Services.

Label's fashion challenge in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

When you talk to Label in New Horizons, she'll ask for your assistance in her research into fashion design. This involves her giving you a specific fashion theme and then you have to model an outfit of your own design for her to evaluate.

Here are some of the fashion themes that Label might ask you to design outfits for:

  • Comfy
  • Everyday
  • Fairy Tale
  • Formal
  • Gothic
  • Outdoorsy
  • Party
  • Sporty
  • Theatrical
  • Vacation
  • Work

Label will helpfully give you a piece of clothing to get you started, but after that it's up to you to get to work crafting your own outfit from your clothing collection.

Oddly, the outfit you wear can not be stored in your wand.

This is meant to be a party outfit - I know nothing about parties nor outfits.

If Label wanted you to create a sporty outfit, for example, then you could wear a Fitness Tank, shorts, a bandanna, Tube socks and a pair of Sporty sandals.

When deciding what to wear it's a good idea to always include the piece of clothing that she gives, as you know that is guaranteed to meet the requirements she's set you. You also don't need to create a complete outfit either, but it's a good idea to ensure you're wearing at least a pair of shoes, shirt, trousers or a full body outfit, like a dress.

If you do want to create a full outfit, you can prepare for Label's fashion challenge by visiting the Able Sisters shop every day and checking to see what they have in stock. If it looks like it fits one of the above themes, then it's a good idea to buy that item. This way you'll slowly build up a collection of clothes that you can quickly change into when the need arises.

If you're having trouble creating an outfit, then you can always visit a friend's island and see what their Able Sisters is stocking, since it will most likely be different.

Once you've created your outfit, head back to Label and she'll evaluate your design.

The Animal Crossing 2.0 update and Happy Home Paradise is here! We can help you with the new additions - including where to find Brewster, Gyroids, new villagers, ordinances, new fences, storage shed, new hairstyles, Froggy Chair, group stretching and Kapp'n boat tours. Cooking is now unlockable, so you need to know how to make both flour and sugar, as well as how to grow carrots, potatoes and tomatoes. Meanwhile, if you're new to Animal Crossing, our New Horizons tips can help with the basics. From the off, there's fish and bugs to catch, flowers and fruit to grow with. One long term goal is building your Happy Home Academy score. Finally, you need tools such as the new ladder and vaulting pole to fully explore.

Rewards from Label's fashion challenge in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Label will give you two rewards in thanks for helping with her research in New Horizons.

The first will be a piece of clothing from her clothing line Labelle. This could be anything from a coat to a pair of sneakers.

Once Label's given you an item from her clothing line, you'll also occasionally find it for sale at the Able Sisters tailor shop.

You'll receive your second reward the day after you've helped Label; she'll send you a letter containing one or more Tailor Tickets.

These tickets can be exchanged at Able Sisters for any item that is 3,000 Bells or below. You can store these tickets in your house storage till there's an item that catches your eye at the tailors.

Good luck building up your clothing clothing in New Horizons!
