Illustrator for Fashion Design Sketching: Level 1

Course type: LIVE, Virtual

Total hours of Training: 5

Level: Beginner

Price: $350

Sketching is the language of a fashion designer. It's how we communicate our ideas to potential customers and, more importantly, to manufacturers. So if you're not clearly illustrating your designs, you're bound to get bad samples, inaccurate pricing, and waste your time and money.


Creating an accurate fashion design flat sketch is a critical part of design development. And Illustrator has become the industry standard for drawing fashion technical drawings so you can more clearly communicate your ideas.

Even if you've never used the software, you'll learn how to use the Pen Tool to draw a flat sketch of your design, color it, and create a basic worksheet, the start of a fashion tech pack which you'll need to pass to a manufacturer to make a sample.

This course will teach you the basics of Adobe Illustrator and how to use Illustrator for Fashion Design to draw your fashion design sketches. 

Here's what you get:

• live, virtual instruction in a semi-private, group setting (classes are limited to 4 students)
