Skillshare – The First Steps of Fashion Design: From Concept to Illustration | 325 MB
Creating rapid fashion illustrations is one of the most important skills needed for a fashion designer to convey the themes shapes and textures of their garments in the most efficient way possible. When building an entire collection time is often of the essence so it is essential to accurately represent your ideas on paper – beautifully – without wasting any effort.
We started Bellavance after graduating from Parsons School of Design and we have been fortunate enough to have our brand featured in top editorial outlets like Style.com and retail shops like Opening Ceremony. Long before our pieces are featured on pages or shelves however they start out as concepts through sketch and illustration.
