FSD: Advance Fashion Illustration

Fashion School Diaries: Advance Fashion Illustration
RTW dress on the left was inspired by the couture gown on the right.
One of the exercises we need to master in this class. This is called collage, where in you try to create  the clothes on your sketches with the materials available around. Anything but plain watercolor or markers.
The secret to create one is a strong glue, sharp scissors, fun & creativity.

I especially took just this subject this term so I can concentrate on it as much. I know, I suck in fashion illustration, so I really need to exert extra effort in perfecting my sketches. So far here are some of our exercises we were asked to finish in school. Different techniques, tips, finishing, and styles were taught and I think I improved so much compared to my basic illustrations. Here are some of my sketches from finished and some... oh well still a work in progress.

Beads and Sequins Illustration Technique
Crochet, Animal Prints & Houndstooth
Stripes, Glen Checks, Herringbone, Polka Dots
Chekered, Leather & Denim
Feathers, Peacock feather
Patent Leather, Tassels, Brocade
Right now I'm busy finishing my finals portfolio complete with flats, sketches, and specs. 
That's it for my Fashion School Diaries update.

Questions? Comments? I'd love to hear from you!

P.S.
I edited the photos to look dusty and crumpled.
It's really neat and clean in real life~ =)

swexie said...

I would personally wear that lavander gown! ganda! =)

Nhil said...

I especially like the purple/lavander one. Looks elegant to me. :) Parang mas nakaka-enhance din ng height, the way I see it. :)

april :) said...

i really like the first 2 photos :3
wish i could wear them someday :D

Mai Flores said...

Wow! You really think that you suck in fashion illustration? I don't think so! If you saw my sketches then, then you'd probably start seeing yours as better creations. Hehe! I also took this subject back in college. I graduated in UP Diliman, with a BS Clothing Technology degree. How about you.. where are you studying now?

Traveler on a Shoestring said...

Wow very impressive! I love the black gown! Oh did I mention I was also smitten with the animal print gown? Cool! Keep up the good work!

Mini Projects said...

merlmd said...

nice drawings...I used to do fashion drawings when I was in the elementary grades. I was inclined to fine arts but my dad disagreed, so I became an MD. I wonder if that inclination is still there?

marri said...

I have high respects to those who knew how to sketch and draw. I'm a frustrated designer though. I remember when I was in primary schools... I used to make dresses for my paper dolls.

bayenmd said...

nice sketches here, with lots of potential

PEACHY PINK SISTERS said...

Love your designs and choice of colors! :D I used to draw fashion illustrations too til I realized I like drawing portraits (with makeup for female ones). :P

markpogi said...

Those were nice creations if you ask me. ^_^

athena said...

Christeen said...

@ Mich - Yes dear this is my 2nd course. Because I'm plus size hirap humanap ng damit so I enrolled to make myself pretty clothes. =) I'm workin on it. Will post them soon~ <3

@ Andy - thank you babe~ <3

@ Swexie - that's one of my first illustration. =) Madali lang gawin sa totoong buhay yan~ <3

@ Nhil - sa design ko po na yan eh natatanggal ung nakapatong na chiffon long skirt para pde po magamit as cocktail dress un nsa loob.

@ April - thank you dear! Those first 2 ang hirap gawin~ hihihi!

@ Mai - Really UPD ka? Bow ako syo! =) I suck as in! kung makita mo lang un mga unang practice sketches ko parang paa un ginamit pagsketch! Sa help ng mga book and my teacher naayos ko naman kahit papaano. Sa FIP ako nag-aaral ngayon. =)

@ Traveler on a Shoestring - Thank you so much for dropping by. Most of them are still a WIP. Will post the finished sketches soon.

@ Mini Projects - Thank you so much for finding my rough sketches impressive. This makes me wanna improve some more on this craft.

@ Miss Independent - Thank you babe! I shall need one soon for my grad show. =)

@ Diane - Thanks babe!!! I must finish my sewing classes then I can accept orders na. =) IMY!!!

@ Yuu Ki - Babe it's now too late to develop this skill. You can start by scanning some illustration books. Frustration ko din to dati. I'd rather make a blue print or exploded isometric view but not human drawings! As in naiiyak na lang ako sa panget ng gawa ko. Pero if your really really like it you must find a way. =)

@ Merlmd - Thank you dear. I believe that inclination is still there somewhere, you just have to find it and enhance it. =)

@ Marri - Thank you dear! I also started in my childhood with paper dolls and barbies. I'd dress them up ala Lady Gaga~ Hihihi!

@ Bayenmd - thank you so much for the inspiring words. =)

@ Tracy & Liz - I just develop my love for fashion sketches. Thank you so much babe!

@ Markpogi - Thank you so much for finding it nice. =)

@ Athena - Thank you babe. Yeah I finished ID back in college. I never really practiced it but I am finding the skills useful and helpful with fashion designing.

@ Christeen - Thank you dear. You are makin me blush!

Thanks everyone for dropping by. All your comments made me really thankful of my skill and will continue to inspire me in this new world I am in. Again thank you all so much! <3 <3 <3

MissGennD said...

Thank you dear! Those first 2 ang hirap gawin sa papel pero madali lang gawin sa real fabric kasi puro circle skirts na patong patong lang. Bakit naman someday pa pde naman bukas na. hihihi! =)

MissGennD said...

Thank you so much dear! I can't wait to finish my folio na din. My mood board consists of Imelda Marcos and the Eiffel Tower. Sana nga someday I can't perfect this skill and be known. Haay... Someday... =)

MissGennD said...

Thank you so much for the inspiring words it goes to my emergency box full of inspirations. Whenever I feel down and about to give up I open that box and shower myself with those words of wisdom. It means a lot to me really.

MissGennD said...

You can actually use makeups in creating illustrations too~ Thanks babe!

MissGennD said...

Thank you so much for finding it nice. =)

MissGennD said...

Thank you babe. Yeah I finished ID as my major back in college. I never really practiced it but I am finding the skills useful and helpful with fashion designing, especially the Industrial part. LOLS~

MissGennD said...

Thank you dear. You are makin me blush! =)

MissGennD said...

Really babe? Super fun lang noh? I love course way better than my first one. Sketching relaxes and stresses me at the same time. Next subject would be sewing... Must paint my nails neon so I'd see them clearly. Scared of those hi-speed machines and needles~ Thank you for dropping by~ <3

Hazel said...
