On this course you will learn make your creative Fashion Drawings into garments and how to print and embellish them to create desired affects using hand embroidery and print.

Fashion Illustration Evening classes

Posted on

I’ve been busy planning for Fashion Illustration classes which I’ll be teaching at Rosetta Art Centre (Stratford) from 16th January.

I’ve chosen ‘Vintage’ as the theme to run through the course which will allow students to apply their own style and creativity to their pieces and they will put their ideas into context using a variety of processes. Here are some Illustration examples (for different collections) to get the creative juices flowing.

Veronica Rowlands 1920s evening wear

1920’s collection – eveningwear; intricate line drawing shows the intricacy of the garments and elegance of this look.

Veronica Rowlands 80s daywear

Casualwear inspired from Kitsch 1960’s prints onto 80’s style oversized sweaters and jumpsuits – created from collaged drawings and coloured with felt-tip pens to give the look a fun, childlike edge.

Veronica Rowlands Fashion Illustration

Quirky outerwear inspired from 60’s prints, wallpapers and kitsch objects; coloured using felt tip pens to create a playful, young feel with a vintage twist.

Fashion Illustration Classes

I’m currently teaching a Saturday morning class in Fashion and Character Illustration at the Rosetta Art Centre in Stratford……..I started the class with a few 1 minute illustrations inspired from magazine cut-outs which the children then worked into adding colour, detailing and collage (I feel the fast illustrations are great for getting the creative juices flowing).

What a productive morning it was, my class are so creative and talented!
