Fashion Drawing and Illustration is one of the important cornerstones in becoming a Fashion Designer.  Paris College of Art offers the Fashion Design programme. 


Key facts

More than ever within this digital age saturated with visuals it is important to have a unique voice with a hand-drawn line that stands out and does not blend in with the rest. This course will therefore focus on finding each student’s unique style and strength to develop it further throughout the year. During this semester we will focus on experimenting with various mixed media in order for each student to find their preferred medium or discover a new favorite technique for drawing. The emphasis will also be on the technical aspects of garments and how to represent them in fashion drawing. To build on the students creative expression we will also use collage, embroidery for another dimension as well as use life models in class. Each student will set a personal goal at the beginning of this Semester to advance his or her personal style throughout this course. The students will be encouraged to embrace new ways of drawing and to draw beyond their comfort zone.

Paris College of Art's Fashion Design programme will teach you more about this topic.
