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, and 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 learn 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 affect your ability to draw new fashion designs. You will learn garment closure: difference between womenswear and menswear button closure.

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 needs 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.
