DRAWING FABRICS

How to draw different types of fabrics:
In this category you will learn how to draw  fabrics in your fashion sketches – nearly all types of fabrics. One of the big things we learn in fashion school is how to make fashion sketches. And a large part of that is drawing fabrics, or drawing the fabrics you plan to use in your design. Believe it or not, there is aright way and a wrong way to do this.

If you’re going to be a fashion designer, you need to learn to put your ideas on paper in the correct way (so others can understand your designs), and how to draw clothes is an essential piece of that. Excel in fashion drawing and create realistic fashion illustrations speaking for themselves. Learn how to draw fabrics like silk, satin, wool, cotton, tweed, lace, fur, leather, prints and velvet in a realistic and convincing way so that nothing is on your way to create breath taking gowns for your collection. Have fun!
