The course will be based on hand drawing but if you are familiar with Illustrator and Photoshop you will have access to these software so you can use them as well. As final project you will present a Spring Summer capsule collection consisting of 5 hand-drawn outfits, following themes and indications related to the 3 main macro trends analyzed on the platform WGSN.
