LEARN FASHION ONLINE – Vibrant, Diverse, Creative, BodyPositive!!
Did you think you didn’t have the art skills? The money? Did you think you’d need to relocate or stop your life in order to get a quality fashion education?
Do you wonder WHAT IT IS YOU NEED TO KNOW to sketch fashion?
What are the supplies, the language, the techniques of fashion?
Can you learn fashion online? Of course you can!
Whether for professional or for the pure joy of this amazing art form!
I’m Laura Volpintesta, and I’ve been teaching fashion design and illustration at Parsons the New School for Design since 1997. I am very happy and excited to have created Fashion Illustration Tribe: an online community, school, and playground for intelligent, heart-centered, diverse, HEART-CENTERED and beautiful fashion design illustration.
…..Because I always believed fashion education could be more free, more fun, more creative, and speak more directly to women, our lives, our bodies and our passions.
I want to see YOU THRIVE. I want to see you finding and sharing your voice.
I want to flood the fashion and art world with OUR images.
I break down the skills you really need to bust through fearful blocks about art and drawing, and bring out your authentic voice through exercises, projects, and videos (about one hour of video per week) and finally illustrate your own originally conceived line of clothing.
Together, we bring out the magic in you. The one you know is waiting to come out!.
My concept is to give you access to an amazing, comprehensive design and illustration course ON YOUR SCHEDULE, wherever you are;
TRULY beautiful fashion supports women as we are and a global community of fashionistas with kindness and joy at the core of their approach to style and craft.
15 modules of fashion study mimics the college semester as you learn fashion design online, from Model Drawing basics to creating finished design illustration presentations of original designs from swimwear to sweaters- creating a sketchbook, mood boards, fabric swatches, gouache watercolor illustrations, and technical drawings! Each week (or choose your own pace) new content will take you further along in your journey.
