Description

This Fashion Sketching Course (7-videos-modules) is for beginners: young and old, with an interest and passion for designing fashion. In this Course you will learn how the body moves, body movement, balancing the body using the Plumb Line. You will learn the industry standard "9-Heads Croqui"

We start with a simple exercise with a pencil and how to achieve different "shading" effects depending on how you are holding the pencil. 

You will also look at inspiration as a way to influence sketching: fashion inspiration, using a "fashion diary and/or journal"- creating a "pool" from which to draw ideas from will definitely effect your ability to draw new fashion designs. You will learn garment closure: difference between women's wear and menswear button closure.

In this Course students will learn:

  • How to draw a "9-Head Croqui"
  • How to use a Croqui as a template to start sketching fashion ideas
  • Body movement and creating an "S" shaped silhouette
  • Balancing the body and use of the Plumb Line
  • Pencil techniques to create "shirring/gathers", and shading, and coloring
  • Creating a "fashion diary-journal" to use as source of inspiration to influence ideas for designing
  • Differentiate garment closure between men's wear and women's wear
  • Create your own style
  • And some inspiring words of wisdom

Sketching ideas swirling in your mind onto paper is the first step in developing a fashion portfolio and a fashion collection/line. Being able to share ideas that can eventually be translated into an actual garment is so important. 

Your seamstress and/or pattern-maker have to be able to look at your sketches and understand what you're communicating. The sketch will eventually become the garment thus need to be accurate and clear.

You will learn how to create a "fashion journal" which will help you develop your own unique style as a fashion designer. Knowing what you like (and don't like) empowers your designing abilities and will support you in developing your unique "voice".

Learning how to sketch fashion designs, and the practice of it, will give you confidence and certainty; it will boost your morale, and the ability to communicate your ideas.
