Class Project

Create your own runway fashion illustration

In the world of fashion, most garments only receive praise once they are showcased on runways or featured in magazines. Unfortunately, this standard often overlooks the most beautiful part of the production process: the fashion illustration. Whether you're a budding beginner or just looking to improve your skills, this class will provide you with easy to follow steps and tools to bring your art to life! 

Through video tutorials, curated resources, and hands on exercises, I will take you through the process of creating stunning fashion illustrations in a thoughtfully artistic way.  

What You'll Learn

  • Finding Inspiration and Initial Sketches. We will go over ways to find inspiration and check out some of the fashion websites and resources I use on a day to day basis to drive my work. We will also create a sketch based on a fashion image that we find inspiring.
  • Applying the Watercolor. We'll cover how to take our pen and paper sketches into the watercolor phase
  • Finishing Touches. We'll experiement with different ways to complete your illustrations, from adding glitter to defining details with fine tip pens.

What You'll Make

You'll share your process and final sketches with your classmates and receive feedback from your peers. I will not directly be leaving feedback on your work- but please post your work on instagram with the tag #paperfashionclass and I'll check it occassionaly :). By the end of this course you sill have a stunning fashion illustration of your favorite runway look.

Prerequisites

Basic sketching and watercolor experience is a plus, but it is not required.

Level: Intermediate

My name is Katie Rodgers and I started Paperfashion, a fashion illustration blog, nearly four years ago. I’ve been illustrating for as long as I can remember, and I’m excited to finally share my skills with you! I’ve managed to take my hobby and turn it into a career that I’m beyond passionate about. I've had the honor of working with clients such as Lucky Magazine, Kate Spade, Calypso St. Barth, Coach, Nabisco and Alicia Keys. You can find out more about me and my work on Paperfashion, or on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook.
