Image of pencil and sharpenings next to a notepad. Our beginner illustrator courses for fashion design will have you taking copious notes!

Learn how to create interesting and professionally finished mood boards in Adobe Photoshop as well as techniques to bring you hand-drawn illustrations to life, adding print, pattern, texture, movement and shading. Also get tips and tricks on how to create faces, hands, shoes, hair… all without needing to spend hours illustrating. 

Is this Course for me?

Whether you have a little knowledge of Adobe Photoshop or none at all, this course is for you! We do not believe in restricting access to those with little confidence using computers and starting from the very beginning in Adobe Photoshop for Fashion Design and learning things the right way is crucial. Get off on the right foot and you will get to a higher level, much faster, and more importantly; get things done faster! Don’t waste any more time doing things the long way around. If you are unsure if this course is right for your ability level, get in touch, we can talk things through and try our best to place you in a group with a similar level of ability.

Why Adobe Photoshop?

Adobe Photoshop is one of the main industry standard software packages for computer-aided design for Fashion Design. It has changed the way the industry works and saves countless time, money and print costs. The software allows designers to create stunning and effective presentation boards and designs that can be edited and reworked all whilst adding your own creative style. Think that CAD takes the creativity and skill out of drawing? It really doesn’t, it is just another type of medium and canvas on which to be creative – it also has an undo button!

What will I learn?

This Adobe Photoshop for Fashion Design Course will set you up with the fundamental skills required to produce Fashion Industry specific work. This course will take you through the relevant tools and features that every Fashion designer should know. Learn how too quickly and cleanly remove backgrounds, edit and re-colour images, create engaging and professional layouts and more. We will explore techniques within illustration which allow for quick editing and creation, as well as applying print, texture, colour and shading into your work.

Fashion designers, who use Adobe Photoshop will all have their own ways of getting the desired result but on this course you will learn the simplest and most effective methods, concentrating on easy editing and development. 

If you think Adobe Photoshop could help your Fashion business, but want a more tailored learning programme for you and your team get in touch here.Contact
