Learn to Draw Fashion Online with a Short Course in Fashion

Learning to draw fashion can be difficult, and it can be tricky if you don’t know the tricks of the trade. The good news is it can be a lot easier to become a professional fashion artist then your think!

There are many ways to learn how to draw, and the first step should be learning to draw the female figure.

The fashion figure is a model stance for fashion, and it is slightly different to that of a female figure. Usually the model is taller and leaner, and has longer legs.

The best way to start drawing fashion is to use a ‘croqui’ or fashion figure template.

This is an already drawn fashion figure that you can simply trace over, and draw your fashion designs on top. It is the quickest and easiest way to draw your designs and make them look professional.

Here is an example below of how you can use a fashion figure template.

The first step is to trace with a pencil the outline of the female figure. Trace over the torso to give you a clear defined shape to work with. Then start to draw your designs on the torso.

The next step is to then trace over the arms and legs of the figure. You can then move to the head, and draw in a face and hair.

Final step is to draw in your accessories like necklace, shoes, and bangles.

From here, you are ready to start to colour or render your designs. Shade in the clothes, then the skin tone.

Finish with a black fine tip pen to trace over the outlines of the clothing, and figure.

And there you have it: a professional fashion model wearing your fashion design!

Now you can file it in your portfolio for safe keeping! Keep on practicing drawing your designs in this way, and before you know it you will have a complete Fashion Collection !

20 Fashion Figure Templates are included complimentary in our Fashion Design Ebook Pack, available at http://www.fashion-design-course.com.

My son recently came up to me and said “ Dad I plan to open a fashion boutique of my own, now that I have graduated with a degree in fashion designing”. This was a new turf for me. I had to know what I’m getting into before investing any money and the important factor was that my son’s career was on the line. It was then that one of my good friends suggested that I read an e-book on “How to Become a Fashion Buyer and start your own boutique”. This book was truly informational and was written in a very professional way. It gave me all the basic information about what the fashion industry is all about, what does it take to set up a boutique and what constitutes a fashion store etc. It had more real-time data and region specific information on how the industry is faring in those regions. I was very impressed with the self-assessment sections and the focus on communication and customer relations, which is a key part of any business. After reading the book, I was armed with enough inputs and I was confident that I had the right directions to help shape my son’s career in the fashion industry.


Born into a family of bankers and doctors, it was very difficult for me to convince my family and choose a career in the fashion industry. My dream was to establish my own fashion store. In my quest to find out more about setting up my own boutique I came across an e-book titled “How to Become a Fashion Buyer and start your own boutique”. The book was written for a specific target audience in mind, which I feel contributes to its success. With so much information about the various job types and geographical attributes of the industry, this book is sure to produce numerous fashion store owners. I was pretty determined after I read the book that I wanted to be a fashion buyer. The exciting thing about the book is that it really makes you think. I had a rough flowchart in my mind about how much store operations are going to flow and what my key performance indicators should be! It gave me a whole new dimension about the fashion industry and highly recommend you to read this page turner if you dream to make it big in the world of fashion.

I have to seriously consider my options. Although everything about fashion is fabulous, not everything in it are long lasting and appealing. If I don’t want my fashion business go down to the drain, I should straighten up.

“How to Become a Fashion Designer and start your own label” gave me an tremendous amount of confidence to become a Fashion Designer. I never knew there were so many options in the fashion industry apart from being a designer- like a merchandiser, a journalist, a photographer, a fashion model etc. The moment I completed the first assignment, I knew clearly what I wanted to be in the industry – a fashion journalist and photographer. I’m writing this review so that, like my friend who suggested this book and shaped my career, I would help an aspiring student choose their career path in the fashion industry.” Anusha May
