Drawing is the language of fashion - it's truly the best way for us to communicate our ideas. Very few of us are naturally “gifted” at drawing and it is a skill that is learned, involving studying and practicing the techniques.
Learning to draw, even to a modest level, is an investment that brings huge returns, and in the world of fashion gives a huge advantage in being able to communicate your ideas. Using colored markers and colored pencils, fashion designer Benjamin Mach will teach you how to create beautiful drawings as a tool to accurately convey your fashion ideas.
You will learn how to draw the fashion figure; understand fabrics and how they are drawn; terminology of garment details; culminating in the creation of a mini fashion illustration presentation.
