From her legendary walk to her instantly recognisable profile, Naomi is arguably the most influential model of her time. Her hair, face and walk are all signature elements of her world-famous modelling career. In this workshop, you will take a journey through her style and 40-year career, learning to recreate haute couture looks from the runways of London, Paris, Milan and New York, finally taking away a stunning digital fashion illustration.

Begin with an introduction to drawing the fashion figure and capturing the essence of a pose and outfit. Next, practical exercises will familiarise you with figure drawing and depicting fabric movement and texture. Finally, with Naomi’s legendary figure in mind, you will illustrate bespoke designs and digitise your sketches using the Procreate app. The session will simplify the fashion sketch while equipping participants with techniques to develop their own style and approach.

Please note:

  • This workshop includes sketching by hand as well as using iPads
  • All materials including iPads, Apple Pencils and the illustration application Procreate are provided
  • Suitable for beginners and limited to 16 attendees
