Before we start, let’s take a look what modelers do, which skills they have to master, what to know and what to be able to do.
What modelers-designers do in their professional life:
A modeler designs new technological solutions and experimental samples, that would define a lookup and a style; draws sketches, monitors production of samples, interacts with ateliers, factories, tailors. Participates in fashion shows and exhibitions. A fashion designer is a trendsetter. Being in a search for new images, a modeler draws a lot of sketches, basing on own taste, being inspired by various objects, appearances, shapes. A modeler should draw well, know the fashion history and be an expert in fabrics.
Modelers are always demanded in all countries around the world.
One can found own apparel brand and create collections that will be interesting and well sold, or can work in a team and implement own talents in a synergy with other designers.
(We offer classes on promoting own fashion business as well)

The second part of the classes starts from learning the basics of design and modeling of apparel, learning how to draw apparel. Students create their first samples for their collections or order sewing with a professional tailor.
