What you'll learn in this fashion design class:

In today's fashion industry, it is as important for a Technical Designer to know Adobe Illustrator as it is for an Apparel Designer. However, there are some differences in how a TD will use the program. This class will teach you the basics as well as tasks specific to a technical designer's job!

Learn the basics of Illustrator, how to draw technical flat sketches, how to update design details on an existing sketch, create construction detail sketches, show fit updates and corrections on a sketch or photo and more!
Class will cover all of the following topics:
  • illustrator basics (tools, palettes, workspace)
  • using basic shapes
  • using the pen tool to draw detailed and precise flat sketches
  • updating sketches and creating basic trim libraries
  • adding construction details including POMs and callouts
  • showing fit updates and corrections
Students receive the following:
  • a beginner's manual with tutorials and notes from the class
  • access to a student library with trim, croquis & brush libraries
