First 2 hours - Introductions - Overview fashion illustration - Basics of proportion & fashion figure - Drawing a fashion figure : Pose - Drawing a fashion figure : Clothing & how to draw fabric - Drawing a fashion figure : Facial expression & identity Last 20 minutes - Review of each students illustrations - Photo opportunity Keep in mind YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW HOW TO DRAW. I have established a technique anyone with or without drawing experience can understand in a matter of 10 minutes. You will find yourself illustrating fashion figures in no time! During the lesson, I will answer any industry questions you are curious about. Ongoing dialogue about fashion, business, starting a label, designing, making, drawing, etc will be discussed. I love sharing all there is to know about the fashion industry in Paris as a landscape to create! I look forward to meeting you!

Art + Sketch Materials No need to bring art supplies, I have them for you! Just bring yourself, a friend, and an open mind!
Designer Studio (where we attend class). Drawing and learning will be held in the designers residence where you get an insider view into the petite workspace and be apart of the experience. The entire lesson is an informative dialog about the fashion industry. Greeted with incense, artwork hanging from the walls, a sewing machine ready for making, and fabric spools haphazardly askew. A warm, creative environment for learning and sharing.
