Introduction to Fashion Illustration is aimed at complete beginners or those with some drawing experience. In a short amount of time it will take someone from the very foundations of fashion illustration through to an understanding of the various media most useful in this discipline. Excellent for recapping previous drawing skills also. Everyone can learn to draw; they just need the right approach and techniques. We begin with the fashion figure - what does it look like? How do I get it down on the page quickly and easily? We then progress through faces, the rest of the body, then onto media and rendering technique, and creating your own croquis figures.

This course is excellent for reviving previous drawing skills and taking them further, or for applying skills from a related discipline such as fine art or graphic design, to the art of Fashion Illustration. Tips and short cuts included!

*Great for building a portfolio for course entry or to gain the perfect job role.

The Patsyfox Drawing Salon

Vendor since 2014

I’m a Melbourne-based designer and illustrator and have been working in the fashion industry since graduating from university in the late 80’s.

After years of travelling the world and designing for some of Australia’s favourite fashion brands, I saw the light and now make illustration – my first love – my number one.

Besides keeping up with, I mix freelance work with teaching fashion illustration and design at RMIT and in my own boutique classes at The Patsyfox Drawing Salon.  I have a line of Bridal Sketches, illustrating brides in their beautiful dresses by commission, and am currently illustrating for Elle magazine.

I am a gun for hire, whose work can be found in magazines, print advertisements, fashion websites, brochures, invitations, design storyboard presentations, books, trend forecasting, greeting cards, and stationery.


I design-draw-write-photograph, therefore I am.
