We've picked our concept, made mood boards, picked colors, textures, fabrics, played with shapes and proportions. Now is the time to develop design details and create real-life 3D samples out of fabric to test out our designs. This video covers a few ways to help you out with this step in the process.

SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS:
Photos of my work, bits of my life. I'm currently working on a series of fashion alphabet illustrations.
Preview clips of my videos, links to resources and stuff I think is cool or pretty.
I chat and retweet cool links re: fashion, education, local events, body positivity, Asian culture, good food.
Some people like Facebook best for keeping up so I post updates here too.
I pin good examples of fashion illustration and design communication made by other people. I now have a board called "Figure Drawing Refs" which pins lots of great reference pics.
I have 3 Collections on G+, one for fashion figures, one for fashion design, and one for fashion illustration.
Don't call me. I hate the phone.
