Learn Fashion Design, Fashion Illustration & Computer-Aided Design this February @ Martwayne and take your love for fashion to the next level!



This month, we are teaching the CREATIVE side of fashion and our first and really popular course is the Design, Fashion Illustration with Computer-Aided Design Course.  This Course is perfect for you if you love fashion and want to explore your inner creativity.

-  Have you always wondered how people come up with the most amazing designs?

OR

-  Do you have all these awesome ideas but just cannot seem to put them on paper?  

OR 

- Maybe you are tired of copying people's designs and want to come up with yours so people can patronize your work.  

OR worse...

- Your tailors keep wrecking your ideas because no matter how much you "explain" it to them, they just cannot seem to get it?!

OR

-  You keep getting cut out of the final shortlist of candidates in that fashion competition because your fashion sketches were not up to par.

If you fall into any of these categories (and trust me, the list is even longer than this), then this Course is for you!  This Course focuses on the real ART of fashion design!  Yes!  This is where the work really is!




So if you are on the verge of entering for competitions, applying to fashion schools, starting your fashion business and/or meeting with customers OR you have questions like:

-  I am not creative, can I start a fashion business? 

-  I applied to a fashion school but I was asked to submit a portfolio, what is that?!

-  Why do my tailors keep spoiling my work?

-  How do people come up with all these amazing designs?

FRET NOT!  You are in the right place!  And the best part is, we teach FROM SCRATCH!  So whether you are a complete beginner OR you are a good illustrator but wish to enhance your skills, this Course is for you!



Goodness!  Wouldn't you love to learn how to draw like this?!

I often tell people that if customers give you a magazine to copy, then I doubt they consider you a designer at all.  And that is where a lot of designers I chat to have found themselves.  And this is simply because, without a portfolio, you cannot get your customers to choose from your designs.  It is just that simple! 

To really succeed as a fashion designer or start a clothing line, you need to learn how to sketch, how to develop portfolios, how to develop collections and how to defend them!  Operating as a designer definitely earns you more respect from your customers and also get them to choose from your designs.  And this Course is here to teach you just that!  :-D

So What Will You Learn?

The Course in in 3 parts!  Yes!  One Course, 3 different parts!

Part 1: Design, Concept Development & Portfolio Presentation


Here you will learn the following:

-  how to develop your designs from an idea or a concept;
-  the design and production process;
-  how to choose colors and fabrics;
-  how to create technical drawings which you will use to communicate your ideas to your tailor to minimize errors;
-  how to develop the documentation required in a design project;
-  how to create moodboards, concept boards and storyboards; and  
-  how to develop and defend your fashion collection.



Part 2: Manual Illustration


-  Drawing the Fashion Figure;
-  Body & Spinal Movements;
-  Facial Features & Hair;
-  Clothing the Fashion Figure.

Part 3:  Digital Illustration with Computer-Aided Design

This is the portion where you learn how to perform the magic on your designs using CAD - turning your manual illustrations from drab to fab!


Just check out some of the finished work:






And you know what the best part is?!  You can choose to do all 3 parts (which is of course what I would advise) OR decide which of the parts you want to learn based on your level of experience, your finances or your time.

So say, for example, you already know how to sketch beautifully but all you want to learn is how to use CAD to add that extra oomph to your designs, you can just register for Part 3!  Yes!  It is really that simple!  Why pay to learn what you already know right?!

SO what are the benefits of the Course you ask?!

Well first, you never know what you are capable of until you are pushed!  Yup!  Our students never knew they had it in them but they pushed themselves and they aced it!

I recall a previous class where a student whose project I initially rejected, repeated it and came up with an AWESOME collection based on medical injections - just in time for an exhibition in Italy!  I was blown away!

In another class, we actually discovered that a student got her target market wrong based on her designs.  She thought her target market was aged 24 - 35 whilst her designs showed she should have been targeting a market for sophisticated women aged 40 and above.  Without this  exercise, she would have been frustrated and would have made made ZERO sales because she would have been marketing her work to the wrong people.  It was a real eye opener.  

PLUS!  You are actually on your way to starting a new career in fashion illustration,  establishing yourself as a fashion illustrator who designers can patronize!  Easy!  A previous student just resigned her job to focus on fashion illustration as a career and I have already referred people to her!  So really, you will make your money back easy!

So the Course goes beyond just you learning how to draw!  It helps you know who you really are as a fashion designer and if you love fashion sketching, then you can easily establish yourself as one!  PLUS you also learn the value of learning from constructive criticism.  Trust me the Course is the ISH!
