Dress Designing Essentials

Contrary to popular belief, even the most celebrated and successful fashion designers in the world had to start their careers with the basics.  In fashion design, it’s the classic case of learning to crawl before moving on to walking, running and eventually flying.  Which is precisely why anyone with an interest in becoming a successful fashion designer should ensure they have a strong grasp of the fundamentals of dress design.  Without which, being taken seriously enough to get a foot in the door just isn’t going to happen.  Creativity is one thing, but you also need to master a few essential practical basics, before moving on to the next important step.

This exclusive tutorial provides newcomers to fashion design with an overview of critical dress designing essentials.  A range of topics and considerations are covered in detail, including material and colour choice, choosing the design or structure, working with unusual figures and decoration/embellishment of garments.  Learn how to design stunning dresses for all body types and all occasions.
