FASHION ILLUSTRATION AND IDEA DEVELOPMENT
COURSE OVERVIEW

This course is designed for beginners, and also more experienced fashion designers who want to improve their drawing skills. Fashion sketching and illustrating are key skills in the fashion design process, and this fashion illustration course will teach students how to draw garments and render materials such as silk, leather and denim using pencils and markers.

Students will explore different fashion illustration techniques such as drawing textures using graphite or soft pencil and basic marker rendering. They will learn how to sketch pleats, flares, gathers, necklines, collars, sleeves, and will help them depict fabric that drapes naturally, and capture textures and embellishments in their drawings.
