I can't believe I'm already in my second semester of Fashion Design!
Estoy ya en mi segundo semestre de Diseño de Modas. No me lo creo!

January 13th, 2011.  Beginning of our second semester in Fashion Design.  Courses: Illustration I, Design I.

Enero 13, 2011.  Comienzo de nuestro segundo semestre en Diseño de Modas.  Materias: Ilustración I, Diseño I.

It being the first day and all,  we didn't do much, other than learning what is it we're going to learn in each class, what to expect and of course what materials we need to buy.   Sketch books, Fabrian Paper, Different type of pencils, markers etc.

Por ser el primer día no hicimos mucho. Consistió en Introducir las materias, enterarnos en que consiste cada una, que haremos y claro...que materiales necesitamos comprar.  Cuadernos de Bocetos, Papel Fabriano, distintos tipos de lápices, marcadores, etc. 

 We did get out first assignment though! We have to draw FIFTY croquis for Illustration I. 

Pero sí nos pusieron una tarea de Ilustración! Tenemos que dibujar CINCUENTA croquis.

The idealised figure, upon which, fashion illustrators drape their dress designs on, is also known as a “croquis.” The word “croquis” comes from the French word, meaning, “to sketch.”
The croquis is a means of communicating fashion concepts via an idealized fashion form.
La figura estética, que utilizan los Ilustradores de Moda  para cubrir sus diseños en el, es conocido como "croquis". La palabra "croquis" proviene de la palabra francesa, y significa "Boceto".

El croquis es un medio para comunicar conceptos de moda via una figura idealizada de moda.

I know this semester will be even more hectic than the last, but I am SO excited :)  Now, some picture inspiration that makes me want to develop some mad Illustration Skills.

Estoy segura de que este semestre será mucho mas trabajoso que el pasado, pero estoy emocionada! :)  Ahora, las dejó con algunas fotos que me inspiran a desarrollar mis habilidades de Ilustradora.
