As a creative fashion designer, you need skills to help you express designs and fashion ideas. You may also imagine a certain design that may not come out as you imagined. This Fashion Sketching 101 Course teaches how to draw fashion illustration sketches and how to communicate it to your production team.

This course is perfect for you if:

  • You are passionate about fashion;
  • You want to become a fashion designer;

You don’t need to be an artist to create beautiful sketches

Fashion Illustration Course

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,

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. 

‘’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, 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!’’

Since you learn the basics, you don’t need to be an artist to benefit from this course. So if you:

  • Want to start your ready to wear clothing line and are just plain tired of copying people’s work;
  • Imagine beautiful designs but are unable to translate them into sketches;
  • Find it difficult describing your designs to tailors or find that your tailors cannot execute the styles you have described with the desired precision;
  • Are tired of being intimidated by the creativity of others and want to create amazing designs that are like those from the runway;
  • Feel you are not creative but want to learn how to be creative and design unique clothes for your fashion business;
  • Want to see your designs featured in fashion magazines and on the runway during fashion week and at top shows; or
  • Are looking for an alternative source of income and want to learn how to become a fashion illustrator.

    Thanks again for the opportunity.  Been thinking of how to touch lives with fashion. I hope this idea of mine will actually put a smile on people’s faces when I eventually design / produce for them. #fashionforconfidence
