A peek into our just concluded 3-days Fashion illustration Crash Course

. . .Last week was a great one, not just because we finally had fair weather but because of the productive fashion illustration classes we held at COC Fashion School.

A 3-days crash course  on fashion illustration was decided on by our training team, we got the word out, dealdey.com helped as well, there was a massive turn out and we had to group them in batches. It was indeed a huge success.

Amazing reviews from participants, beautiful works displayed and self satisfaction filled the air in our classrooms, as the students found out that they had been transformed from novice to amazing fashion artists.

Here are a few pictures of how it went, we are so excited to share. . .
