Illustrator for Fashion Design Sketching: Level 1

Course type: LIVE (In-person or Virtual)

Total hours of Training: 5

Level: Beginner

Price: $350-$425

Fashion design 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 sketch is a critical part of design development. And Illustrator has become the industry standard for drawing flat sketches 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 in Illustrator 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 Illustrator and how to use Adobe Illustrator for Fashion Design to draw your fashion design sketches. 

* If you're looking for a class to learn fashion sketching for beginners, this class is for you.
