Programme Specification


Become an ‘Artist of Illustration’ for fashion. This course introduces the key skills adopted by professional illustrators working in today’s creative industries, with an emphasis on fashion and artistic practice. Illustrators work for fashion brands, graphic design companies, magazines, events and exhibitions, on books and editorials, trend books and advertising, and respond to the growing demand in the digital world for illustration used in blogs, tumblr, pinterest, etc. Participants learn contemporary fashion illustrator skills, develop an individual style, and gain knowledge of past and current illustration methods used in the international fashion field. This course pays homage to the true heritage of Istituto Marangoni, famous for its polished and professional illustration style.


Week 1

Going back to the drawing board – this course starts with a ‘re turn’ to drawing skills; the trend in Fashion Illustration today. The course will provide participants with the skills to apply diverse drawing techniques to produce various styles of illustration. References and studies of artists, their use of colour and materials on canvas and paper, will help develop new approaches to create fashion illustration. Participants will experiment with colour, scale and mark making, questioning the preconception of how a fashion illustration should be.

Week 2

Participants move on to learn and apply the technical strengths of digital illustration technique, learning how to use it creatively to complement and enhance a forwardthinking and individual approach to produce contemporary fashion illustration. The ability to tell a story through the mood, pose and proportion will be a component part of the contents in this week that will help promote the fashion message of the illustration: a knowledge of contemporary trends will inform the fashion looks.

Week 3

In the final week of the course participants will choose a theme to build a small selection of illustrations. The theme may be based on technique of illustrating or the development of a small collection. Participants will be expected to include the creative and experimental approaches developed over the short course in the final body of work; a reflection of an exciting and contemporary approach to illustration that draws on the freedom of artistic endeavour, and the rigor of accurate garment representation
