Tomorrow (today, technically as it's 12:45am as I type this), I start a basic fashion design course. It'll cover fashion design principles, textiles and textures, color, figure analysis in aid of designing, drawing, and preparing a portfolio.
I'm excited. To learn. To start from almost zero.
Like a school kid, I bought supplies on my lunch break: a clearbook, intermediate pad, pencil, ballpen, eraser, sharpener, ruler, and even a new tape measure. :-)
