The Make Den kicked off the first PACT Prom Project Class with a fashion illustration workshop! PACT is a restorative justice organization which helps at-risk youth in the GTA with almost no government funding. PACT Prom Project is aimed at giving students practical design, sewing and alteration skills, while working towards the ultimate goal of completing a finished prom dress, which will then be presented to three pre-selected high school students from across Toronto who lack the resources to buy a prom dress on their own – a real dream come true!
Our fashion illustration workshop was lead by fashion illustrator Danielle Meder, and the results were spectacular!!! Danielle really knows her stuff – she’s worked for The Fashion Incubator, NOW magazine, The National Post, The Globe and Mail, and Worn Journal! Dan’s gift is making even complicated stuff seem simple, like these fashion croquis. She breaks things down into easy parts – she always starts an illustration with the head and spine, then she adds hips and shoulders, a torso and finally hands, arms and legs. After the skeleton is in place, she puts a layer of tracing paper over the whole thing and traces the pretty parts, while leaving out the construction lines! But really – isn’t fashion just like that, though?
She held the classes attention for more than 3 whole hours, which isn’t easy to do – and as you can see, she really gets results!!!
