Austin Design Week – An Illustrated History of Fashion
My Illustrated History of Fashion Workshop will take you through a visual journey of the hottest fashion of the ‘60’s and its relationship to the social and cultural happenings of the era. Practice along with my live sketching demonstrations to master new silhouettes and styles. Lastly, with new confidence, skills and historic inspiration, students will design, sketch and color their own 60’s inspired fashion illustration.
