Fashion illustration is essential for fashion designers to facilitate the expression of ideas in their work. This evening course is for anyone that wants to explore the area of fashion illustration and observational drawing of the body. You will be guided through multiple drawing and mark making techniques that embrace unconventional processes and give a unique understanding of what makes a successful fashion illustration. You will create illustrations inspired by the V&A’s Europe 1600 - 1815 and Fashion galleries whilst observing a live fashion model.Read more
