Fashion Illustration: Drawing the catwalk photo
From her legendary walk to her instantly recognisable profile, Naomi is arguably the most influential model of her time. In this 2-day 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 the basics of drawing the fashion figure and tips for capturing the essence of a pose and outfit. You will then develop foundational drawing and observation skills through practical sketching exercises around the museum, familiarising yourself with figure drawing and the core elements required to depict movement and mood. Finally, with Naomi’s legendary figure in mind, you will illustrate bespoke designs inspired by the pieces displayed within the exhibition and digitise your sketches using the Procreate app. This course will simplify the fashion sketch while equipping participants with techniques to develop their own style and approach, finally taking away the beginnings of your very own digital fashion sketchbook
