Unleash your creativity with this 3-in-1 fashion course

As a creative fashion designer, you need skills to help you express designs and fashion ideas. Without these skills, you may be unable to accurately describe your design to those who need to execute it such as your tailors or production team. Also, you may imagine a certain design with various combinations of fabrics and ornaments that may not come out as imagined when put together. Understanding how to draw fashion illustration sketches helps you accurately picture your designs and guides you in designing with precision.

This course is perfect for you if:

  • You are passionate about fashion;
  • You want to become a fashion designer;
  • Are a fashion designer who finds it difficult to sketch designs and visually represent your fashion ideas to your clients;
  • You know how to sew, but you are unable to come up with original designs; or
  • You are tired of copying styles from fashion magazines.

You do not need to be an artist to create beautiful sketches

Fashion Illustration at Martwayne

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

'Before I went to fashion school, I could not draw to save myself, much less communicate my ideas (if I even had any at all) on paper.  I could not even draw a straight line without a ruler.  I learnt everything from scratch!'

-Tope Williams-Adewunmi, CEO & Founder, Martwayne

This Course is specifically tailored to deliver fashion illustration for beginners. As a student of this course, you learn from scratch and are guided through the step-by-step processes of creating beautiful sketches. Since you learn the basics, you do not need to be an artist to benefit from this course.

If you:

  • Want to start your ready to wear clothing line;
  • Imagine beautiful designs but are unable to translate them into sketches;
  • Find it difficult describing your designs to tailors;
  • Find that your tailors hardly ever execute the styles you have described with the desired precision;
  • Want to create amazing designs that are like those from the runway;
  • Are tired of being intimidated by the creativity of others;
  • Feel you are not creative but want to learn how to be creative (This is very possible once you have gotten a firm understanding of the processes and key techniques involved);
  • Are looking for an alternative source of income as a fashion designer;
  • Want to create unique designs for your fashion business;
  • Want to see your designs featured in fashion magazines and on the runway during fashion week and at top shows;
  • Love designing women's clothing including high fashion and would love to sell your designs;
  • Want to learn how to become a fashion illustrator;
  • Want to see how the combination of colours and fabrics which you have imagined appears; or
  • Are just plain tired of copying people's work.

You can make a living as a fashion illustrator!

Did you know that there is an increasing demand for fashion illustration in Nigeria? This is a skill that can generate the extra income you deserve. You can make a lot of money either as a fashion illustrator who sketches people’s ideas for them; or as a fashion designer who does not have to go through Asoebi Bella or other fashion magazines to come up with unique designs.

‘’I have had several conversations with people in the past about creativity and how to draw but I could really identify with 2 different designers who were a bit unsure of themselves.  

The first lady had submitted some sketches for a competition and was totally gutted when she did not make the cut-off list and she contacted me.  When I asked her to show me the sketches she submitted, she sent me the following images - [please note that I have her permission to post these pictures]:

One look and I knew instantly why she did not make the list. 

Not long after that, I spoke with another lady who had just resigned her job but was worried.  She was not sure if she could really cope since she knows deep down, she is not creative as such. 

I hear stories like this all the time, which is why at Martwayne, we are all about creativity! 

Yes!  We are teaching the creative sides of fashion!’’

About the Founder

Tope Williams-Adewunmi, Founder, Martwayne Fashion School

My name is Tope Williams-Adewunmi and I am a fashion entrepreneur.  I run Martwayne, where we give you Power through Fashion by helping you turn your love for fashion into a viable business.  We run fashion courses targeted at the creative, the practical and the business of fashion! 

So if you are on the verge of entering for competitions, applying to fashion schools, starting your fashion business and/or meeting with customers, but you are panicking, fret not!  You are in the right place!  Our Short Course in Creative & Fashion Illustration with Computer-Aided Design is perfect for you if you are a complete beginner or if you can already draw but wish to enhance your skills!

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.  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 gets them to choose from your designs.  This Course is here to teach you just that!

Just look at the amazing sketches and designs our students have been able to achieve with this course! They all learnt from scratch and have been able to create magic!

These stunning dresses from pencil sketch to final garment were based on a class project on the theme ‘’Electric,’’ created by a student in our Advanced Dressmaking Course.
