YOU LOVE FASHION! Wait, no, not exactly.
You love PEOPLE. You love fabric, costume, shape. Fascinated by the stories of adornment and culture that you see weaving around the world in cities, in small villages, around you and beyond.
You’re someone who loves women and their lives and needs. You want to sketch fashion as well as any professional, but do not want to distort the bodies, (because that is SO DONE).
You’re a soul who loves getting your hands messy as you dig into your imagination and creativity.
AH, and you feel rather STUCK!!!!!????
(START GETTING UNSTUCK RIGHT NOW – DON’T FORGET TO go to the top of this page AND SUBSCRIBE to access your FREEBIES- model drawing lesson, PDF fashion sketchbook, croquis template and introduction to art supplies!)
You feel stuck because
You have so many references, emotions and ideas kicking around in your head. But aaaaaaaargh you can’t DRAW!
What you imagine is so beautiful, you feel couldn’t possibly get it out on paper!
(Not the way you see it in your head.) and you think you can’t “do art”,
but inside something even stronger says:”YOU HAVE TO”.
You see the time passing and it feels like some terrible mistake that you aren’t using your talent and sharing it with the world.
Heck, the world? Even yourself.
You want to see YOURSELF what you can do. Where do you start?
What are students learning in those fashion schools? What is fashion illustration? What is fashion design?
Where do you find the resources and “lay of the land” in the world of fashion designing and sketching?
Art supplies…. model drawing, …… watercolors, inks, papers…. fabrics and swatches…..
Fabric surface pattern design…. fine details like closures, pockets, seams and gathers. What are they and how do you draw them?
How can you improvise them and find your own voice to express people, fashion, design and adornment?
Not in a surface way, but in a deep way. All of this cool stuff like shading and textures, building a portfolio.
But in an encouraging, funky, fiery and fun environment.
