Basics Of Fashion Illustration Workshop: Fashion Illustration, popularly known as Fashion Sketching is an art of communicating fashion ideas visually, either on paper or digitally. These illustrations highlight the tiniest details that the fashion designer wants on real attire. We curated a workshop on Basics of Fashion Illustration and invited a Mumbai based designer Sheela Suthar. Sheela has her label that specializes in handmade fashion wear for Festive and Bridal Couture

The Basics Of Fashion Illustration Workshop Began

The workshop began with Sheela preparing her canvas by drawing a 12-inch vertical line and ten horizontal lines with a distance of one inch between each line. She patiently explained how each horizontal line on the map will accommodate different body parts in a simple layman language. Next, Sheela also added minute details and curves to it like highlighting the collarbone. The enthusiastic participants also bombarded Sheela with lot of questions related to fashion illustration as well as fashion industry.

Towards The End Of The Workshop

Towards the end of the workshop, Sheela designed a beautiful red gown and also added skin color to the human figure to make it look lively and aesthetic. The Rooftop members kept up with the drawing pace of Sheela and also created their beautiful designs. This workshop indeed helped a lot of fashion aspirants to learn the basics of fashion illustration.  The attendees belonged to different parts of the country and varied age groups. At the end of the workshop, all the participants displayed their beautiful illustrations and mesmerized Sheela.

Rooftop as always was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
