Additional notes

What is the difference between our Fashion Drawing and Fashion Illustration short courses?

Our Fashion Drawing course is for students who want to learn how to draw a figure and how to draw clothes on that figure in order to be able to communicate their design ideas. This is a key aspect of the design process and if you are planning to go on to study fashion you'll be doing lots of this type of figure drawing. This course is suitable for the complete beginner.Our Fashion Illustration course (link below) is a more conceptual course where students learn how to use different rendering techniques to create the impression of a design in a more artistic style or like that would appear in a fashion magazine or in fashion media. This course would be good for someone who had some experience of drawing/painting and wanted to further develop their own illustrative style.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to communicate their design ideas to a wide range of people, including colleagues and customers.

Upon finishing the course you will receive a RMIT Certificate of Completion. You can use this as a record to demonstrate the outcomes covered in the course.
