Draping and illustration are key skills you will need if you are interested in a career in fashion. Draping allows you to view the relationship of the fabric to the body, and this class will help you learn how to translate that relationship onto paper so that you can easily communicate your fashion vision to others. Learn the basic concepts of draping fabric and the various forms different fabrics take as they hang along body curves. Then practice the drawing techniques needed to depict curves and texture with ease and drama.
