Be the Designer You Were Destined to Be! Register for our Design & Illustration Course with Computer Aided Design. Starts 27 February (Weekend Option) & 2 March 2016 (Weekday Option)!

So I had a loooong chat with a banker yesterday exploring how she can channel more of her energies (and of course eventually leave her 9-5 job) towards what she loves doing the most - dressing people up, helping people combine colors and being the go-to person for all things fashion!  Turns out her sister had told her exactly what she could do but she had difficulty believing such a job opportunity existed in the fashion industry until our chat.

And I chat to people everyday in this same situation - people who know they should be doing something else but are clueless on how to go about it!

This month, we are working people who have an innate creative ability build on these skills and help them become the designer they want to be - and of course... getting paid for what they love doing and what comes naturally to them!

How about moving from just explaining a design to your colleagues and actually drawing it out professionally for them and selling your designs to them?  Or better still.... helping people come up with beautiful portfolios and charging them for it!  It is fun, it is stressless and best of all you are making money doing what you love!

Why not register for our Short Course in Design and Illustration with the option of Computer-Aided Design?! We will teach you how to develop a concept from an idea, how to choose colors and fabrics, how to communicate your ideas to your tailor, and how to draw and digitally enhance your creative ideas  and best of all, how to develop stunning fashion portfolios for fashion school applications, consultations with your clients and for fashion competitions - ALL FROM SCRATCH!

We have a weekend option available for busy professionals and a weekday option for those with a more flexible schedule.  AND we have different options for you to choose from regardless of whether you are a beginner or a skilled illustrator looking to enhance their skills!

What Will You Learn?

The Course is in 3 parts.

Part 1: Design, Concept Development & Portfolio Presentation

-  Developing Your Designs from a Theme or an Idea;
-  The Design & Production Process; 
-  Understanding Colours & Fabrics; 
-  Understanding Technical Drawings & how to Communicate your Designs to your Tailor to Minimise Errors;
-  Developing the Documentation Required in a Design Project; 
-  Developing & Defending Your Fashion Collection.

This is actually just a brief summary of what you would learn.  Of course you will learn about how to create concept boards, storyboards, mood boards, etc but there are also other things you learn.  Anyone who has registered for our Courses know we discuss a whole lot more than what the Course itself such as building the confidence you need, approaching your customer, etc.  These are discussions we hold just basically to help you conquer that fear!

Now the beauty about this part is you would actually be required to develop a proper fashion collection and defend it. 

Part 2: Manual Illustration

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

Part 3:  Digital Illustration

And this is the portion where you learn how to digitally alter your illustrations using CAD! 

Start Dates:

Weekend Option:  27 February, 2016
Weekday Option:  2 March, 2016


Weekend Option: 10am - 6pm (2 sessions, Saturdays only)
Weekday Option:  12 noon - 4pm (2 days a week)

Duration:  8 weeks for both options


The great thing about the Course is you can mix and match any of the options based on what you require.  Some may be fab illustrators but may not understand the design process and need to learn how to develop strong portfolios for fashion competitions or even to appear more professional to their clients or just learn the CAD option.  Or perhaps you are just interested in learning how to sketch your ideas on paper.  

Whatever your needs, you can mix and match your requirements and register for just what you need! Of course we always recommend the full Course :-D

Option 1 - Full Course - Design & Illustration with CAD - N85,000

This Course is not a sewing class.  We also offer sewing classes for busy professionals which run on Saturdays only if you have a full-time job or 3 times a week if you have a more flexible schedule.  That way, you do not have to quit your job until you are truly ready to do so.  We have Courses for complete beginners, courses for those who already have an idea of sewing and want to improve on their skills and perfect the fit and finishing of their clothes and also courses for those who already have fashion businesses but having challenges making money from it .  So whatever stage you are in your fashion journey, we have a Course that will suit your needs.  For more details on our sewing classes, simply click on the link:  Martwayne's Fashion Design Courses
