Phase 1: A Pro Intro
Learn the tricks to getting around in Illustrator, so you won’t waste time or feel overwhelmed.
Phase 2: P is for Pen
The Pen Tool is the hardest but most important tool for doing what fashion designers do in Illustrator-present their designs in the form of flat sketches. In this phase, we accelerate the learning curve so you will automatically begin using the Pen Tool at a more advanced level (one that even some professionals haven’t quite grasped!) At the end of this phase, you will already be ahead of the game!
Phase 3: Do Your Fashion Designer Thing!
You will learn how fashion designers tap into their unique creative talent and use future trends by designing a one-of-a-kind T-shirt, complete with custom-made patterns, colorways, and fabric.
Phase 4: Perfect Presentation
Learn how to use the elements and principles of design to cleverly display your work on a portfolio page, so it will stand out from the crowd.
