Fashion Illustration differs from fashion design in that it is more about conveying a mood or expression of a garment rather than about the actual creation and structure of the piece. In this class, students will begin to learn and understand ways of rendering fashion through the study of various methods of drawing and painting, including drawing from the live model. Students will examine and develop the ability to render the fashion figure as well as the fabrics that adorn.
