We’ve teamed up with London College of Fashion to celebrate the launch of #DRAWFASHION 2018, LCF’s annual fashion illustration competition open to students in the UK.
In this workshop with Sue you will be drawing live from a fashion model recording movement through linear and painterly expression.
You will engage with exploring and experimenting in line and painted form, capturing movement, fluidity and minimalism. Making marks that capture the ethereal quality and essence required in understanding the figure and its relationship to clothes with a focus on proportion, attitude and vibrancy.>
Sue Dray is the BA (Hons) Fashion Illustration course leader at London College of Fashion, where she is nurturing the next generation of fashion illustrators.
Her personal and professional work as a fashion illustrator is about capturing the visual haptic of the moment, responding to a catwalk collection, fashion narrative and life scenario’s. Sue is sponsored by Apple and works experimentally with digital imaging drawing live from the front row encapsulating a whole collection in a few images with speed and dexterity. She draws backstage for Vivienne Westwood and Andrew Logan’s Alternative Miss World and has a roll call of prestigious clients in advertising and publishing.
Sue Dray was the first artist in resident during London Fashion Week SS18 for Fashion Scout and this summer she is Artist in Resident and Creative Contributor at the Villa Lena Foundation in Tuscany, Italy.
