Learn to Draw Fashion Illustrations
Learn to sketch like a designer
The expression “a picture is worth a thousand words” is particularly true when it comes to fashion. It’s easier to develop and share ideas for sewing projects when you can draw a figure and sketch garment details.
Fashion illustration is a fun process and an essential part of the fashion industry. Designers usually make sketches to help compose designs and to visually communicate their concepts to sewing staff. These illustrations play an important role in developing fashion collections.

Artists often create fashion illustrations for advertising campaigns and other promotions. These drawings are not a tool reserved for professionals, however. Anyone can use fashion sketches to hone their design ideas.
