Curriculum:

  1. Fashion Figure Proportions - provides a basic overview of drawing the fashion figure, in increments of proportions and stylistic choices. Analysis of figure work is accomplished through fundamental sketching approaches, creating templates for simple drawing techniques, plus a grid method to create a 10-heads-tall fashion figure.

  2. Basic Figure Forms - Here the figure is broken down naturally into its constituent parts to make the body easier to define, shape, and practice. The purpose of this lesson is for the student to establish and build on fashion design drawing skills.

  3. Model Drawing - examines model drawing, how to analyze a fashion image of a posed model. Four specific areas (balance line, angles, torso, and gesture components) of any type of (standing) pose are translated into drawing patterns. These patterns build on sketching skills (gesture components) used to explore image analysis and the recreation of model drawings.

  4. Fashion Heads - examines a variety of drawing methods that turn the human head into a fashion face. The head is divided into components, mirroring figure-drawing methods that build on basic drawing skills. This approach mixes technical skill with personal style to create signature, individualistic designer faces.

  5. Garments and Garment Details - immerses students in learning to illustrate basic garment silhouettes, as well as the topic of design construction. This lesson includes additional photographic images, both in muslin and in WWD runway and showroom references. These examples reinforce the value of research as a starting point for creative change and innovation.

  6. Drawing Flats and Specs - focuses on two specific types drawing of garment silhouettes: Flats—a sketch of a garment, laid out “flat” (off the body), and Specs—a flat of a garment sketched with precise numerical measurements based on size and fit of a garment, to produce that item of clothing.

  7. Basic Rendering Techniques - focuses on the artistic challenges in amplifying the looks of design sketches, analyzing drawing solutions that simplify prints and imitate basic patterns. The lesson also provides mixed-media color rendering shortcuts that communicate ideas quickly.

  8. High-End Rendering Techniques - explores amplified rendering skills with advanced techniques for the more luxe fabrics. High-end fabrics display more difficult surface interest, often have more elaborate garment construction, and (by design and price point) have more complex silhouettes to define and render.

  9. Drawing Knits - knits, weaving, and embroidery illustrations explore the unique drawing and color rendering techniques for these design treatments. Knits, simple or complex, can present surface interest looks based on their yarn sections and their various stitch patterns, which often require new methods of rendering.

  10. Design Focus and Layout - Composition, in any presentation form, has to strike a balance between creativity and content. Lesson Ten covers designer sketches, in rough figures, or croquis, that tell a design story; styling, shapes, fabrics, and color stories, all in one collection or fashion group. The designer’s sketches, therefore, have a lot to communicate on paper. This lesson merges the visual with the verbal presentation.

  11. Drawing Men - Lesson Eleven is dedicated to the specifics of calculating the easiest drawing methods for developing a male fashion figure and then working on clothing shapes from a designer’s point of view. Menswear, unlike womenswear, tends toward a more directed, realistic body form on which to project its style directives.

  12. Drawing Children - Lesson Twelve focuses exclusively on the range in drawing baby, toddler, kids, and ’tween fashion figures. This range is established through the variety of figure proportions for childrenswear illustrations, in design sketches, relative to their size differences created by the fashion industry for retail markets.

  13. Accessories - Lesson Thirteen covers the subject of fashion accessories, explores a few of its dominant categories, to understand the critical licensing issues for accessory design in the fashion marketplace. This lesson provides names for types and styles of basic, licensed accessory items. It also includes templates to facilitate drawing these classic shapes on or off the form.
