Courses: Fashion Drawing and Illustration, Technical Drawing for Fashion
Alex’s Story: Alex had previously trained in interior design. At the beginning of her career she had the good fortune to work for some iconic brands such as Vivienne Westwood, Agent Provocateur and De Beers Louis Vuitton in a PR / Marketing capacity. It was in these exceptional environments that her passion for fashion design grew. She then went on to run a luxury interior design business before returning to my first love which was fashion. Alex came to us to complete our Fashion Drawing Evening Course with the goal of developing her visual communication skills. Previous training had given Alex some sketching experience but she wanted to improve on this within a fashion environment to communicate design ideas more effectively.
Where are they now? Alex founded Glomad, an ethical luxury resort and beachwear and resort wear label for women, inspired by Ibiza, made in London, reaching out to a global audience. Glomad’s sense of fun and adventure is conveyed in the distinctive prints and illustrious fabric with a focus on and attention to detail.
Alex says: “I had learnt basic sketching for interior design at a summer course at St. Martin’s but wanted to improve my fashion sketching so that I was able to put my ideas down on paper more effectively. I would highly recommend this course. I now find it much easier to express and communicate my design ideas. Due to the small size of the classes you will receive a lot of personal attention. The teacher was a good communicator and highly skilled at fashion drawing and illustration. I also found the course to be fantastic value.”
