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.
In this class we will go over:
I’m hosting a contest for all of you budding illustrators out there! Sign up for this class, and post your favorite look from the SS14 runway shows for a chance to pick the bag of your choice from Lo & Sons. The bags are perfect to tote your art supplies around in as you travel in search of inspiration. I will be picking two winners on October 15th. The top winner will also receive a special gift from me (perhaps an original painting?!) I’ll be looking for creativity. Post your illustration to the class, and title it “SS14 Inspiration”. You can also post it on instagram and tag it with #paperfashionclass.
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 :).
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 Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
