Workshop: Fashion Illustration and Collection Conception with Alexa Stark (2 weeks)
Are you interested in fashion design but don’t know where to begin? In this two-week workshop, you’ll learn to illustrate the traditional fashion figure, the first step in bringing your design ideas to life as you develop your own personal illustration style. From there we will discuss the ins and outs of how to design and illustrate a mini collection: putting together a mood board, discussing the appropriate number of styles, and collecting fabrics. Suggested materials: sketch book, tracing paper, pencil, colored pencils.
Tuesday and Thursday 4-5:30 pm | July 13, 15, 20, 22
