Illustrating Fashion course

January 23 - February 13

Fashion illustration is an exciting practice that is part of advertising, runway shows, new collection launches and brand collaborations. On this short course, you will explore these aspects of fashion illustration and learn how to use different techniques and tools to create striking fashion images.

Guided by award-winning fashion illustrator Joanna Layla, you will learn how to successfully capture a ‘look’. Each week, you will focus on a different aspect of fashion illustration: fashion face, fashion figure, fashion object and fashion editorial. You will do a series of guided drawing exercises and by the end of the course, you will have an inspiring small portfolio of fashion imagery.

Case studies from industry fashion briefs will give you an insight into how a professional fashion illustrator works. Guest speakers – from specialist fashion illustrators to art directors – will give you more insight and advice on working in fashion.
