So we just completed another Stream of this Course about 2 weeks ago. As always, watching the project defence is always the highlight of the Course. It is always amazing seeing different designers developing fashion collections from just an idea – same theme, different interpretations! And this particular one was just as exciting as the others!
Running this Course has always proven something over and over again. Creativity may not be in-built but it can be nurtured and learnt. Some people have been sketching right from the minute they were born, others have to learn it from scratch! But one thing is certain. Everyone has an innate creative ability. We just have to know how to tap into it! And that is what this Course is about!
Our Design, Fashion Illustration & Computer-Aided Design Course is literally 3 courses in 1. It teaches how to develop design ideas from scratch, how to draw these ideas out and how to edit the illustrations using a software.
So if you are lacking in these areas where you:
– have no idea how fashion designers operate and develop fashion collections, OR
– you want to be creative, OR
– you find yourself always having to copy people’s designs without any knowledge of how to create concept boards, mood boards, story boards OR
– you do not have a portfolio for use during client consultations or for fashion competitions or admissions, OR WORSE
– you dream these designs but you do not know how to sketch them out on paper much less bring them to life…
Then you definitely need this course.
What the Course entails:
The 3 parts to the Course are:
Part 1: Design & Concept Development
Part 2: Manual Illustration; and
Part 3: Digital Illustration
In Part 1, students are taught how to create a fashion collection from an idea. How to build upon those ideas using the tools in the design process and are given a theme for their project, which they are expected to build on and defend at the end of the Course. They learn how to create storyboards, mood boards, concept boards, design briefs, technical drawings, etc through taught modules and a series of assignments and research to enable them discover who they truly are as designers.
In Part 2 they are taught how to sketch manually – LITERALLY from scratch using circles and straight lines, how to draw fashion figures and how to draw different design and clothing details n order to properly communicate their ideas to third parties.
In Part 3, students learn how edit their manually drawn illustrations using a software which enables them convert their illustrations from okay to fab! Take this picture for example.
It’s the exact same face in 3 different skin tones, without having to draw out the same face 3 times! And you can make slight edits to your foundation to make it look truly unique! I am still torn on which skin tone is my favourite! 😀
