week 3

In the third week of the "Brocade Elegance: A 45-Day Intensive Fashion Design Diploma Course," students will delve into the creative aspects of fashion design. This week will focus on fashion draping, pattern making, and fashion illustration. Here is a detailed breakdown of the key topics covered:

  1. Fashion Draping: Students will be introduced to the art of fashion draping, which involves manipulating fabric directly on a dress form to create three-dimensional garment shapes. They will learn the basics of draping techniques, understanding how fabric behaves and drapes over the body. Through hands-on practice, students will explore draping principles, drape fabric onto dress forms, and create basic garment shapes like skirts, tops, and dresses.

  2. Pattern Making: This module will cover the essential principles of pattern making, which involves creating templates or patterns based on specific measurements and design requirements. Students will learn pattern drafting techniques, including taking measurements, creating slopers, and transferring designs onto paper. They will create basic patterns for skirts, tops, and dresses, gaining a solid foundation in constructing custom patterns for garment production.

  3. Fashion Illustration: Building upon the sketching skills developed in the previous weeks, students will further enhance their fashion illustration abilities. They will explore different rendering techniques to bring their fashion sketches to life. This module will focus on refining proportions, adding details such as fabric texture, and incorporating elements of movement and expression in their illustrations. Students will learn how to effectively communicate their design concepts and convey the desired aesthetic through their fashion illustrations.

Through practical sessions, guided exercises, and feedback from instructors, students will develop proficiency in fashion draping, pattern making, and fashion illustration. These skills are essential for translating creative ideas into tangible garments, as well as effectively communicating design concepts to clients, manufacturers, or production teams.
