Additional notes

What is the difference between our Fashion Drawing and Fashion Illustration short courses?
Our Fashion Drawing course is for students who want to learn how to draw a figure and how to draw clothes on that figure in order to be able to communicate their design ideas. This is a key aspect of the design process and if you are planning to go on to study fashion you'll be doing lots of this type of figure drawing. This course is suitable for the complete beginner.
Our Fashion Illustration course (link below) is a more conceptual course where students learn how to use different rendering techniques to create the impression of a design in a more artistic style or like that would appear in a fashion magazine or in fashion media. This course would be good for someone who had some experience of drawing/painting and wanted to further develop their own illustrative style.


Tracy Hogan

Working for 40 years and teaching since 1999 in both the fashion and costume disciplines continues to develop Tracy’s visual perceptions and draftsmanship in depicting the figure and costume. Her belief that two dimensional drawing and rendering for clothing is a key designer skill informs her research and practice.
Teaching at various schools and privately helps Tracy to develop lessons based on the physical dexterity required for illustration. Exposure to all kinds of drawing tools and drawing styles enables her students to discover their personal expression.Teaching creativity keeps Tracy engaged and fascinated with the mercurial nature of fashion and illustration.
