About Our Classes

DESIGN THEORY

Design theory involves the fundamentals and principles of creating visual communication and all types of art. It deals with how we see and perceive visual information, and separates ideas of style, taste and trend from the universal principles of aesthetics that are common to every person.

FASHION ILLUSTRATION

This is the art of communicating fashion ideas in a visual form with illustration, drawing and painting. It is mainly done by designers to brainstorm their ideas on paper or digitally before bringing them to life.

PATTERN DRAFTING

This is the process of creating a pattern by taking measurements from a person, form or model in order to create a foundation, which is a pattern used as the basis for the design. The steps in this process include; measurement taking, pattern drawing and pattern set creation.
