INTRODUCTION TO FASHION ART DIRECTION
We will start with the introduction to Art Direction in the Fashion industry. In this class, you will learn how to build concepts around given themes and how to start working in partnership with other creatives in order to achieve your goals as an Art Director. You will also learn techniques in photography and how best to use the Adobe suite, the right typography and fonts that go with fashion editorials. I will also have some guests who are professionals in this field to discuss with you and in turn, you can ask questions too in a live class.
About Nancy O.

Nancy is a Nigerian-American based in Illinois. I have a BFA in Product Development and an MA in Art Direction from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, California. I started my journey into fashion in 2016 where I have the expertise of how to construct garments, and sketch collections and also a clear understanding of manufacturing. Armed with this knowledge I decided to venture into Art Direction as this is rather a new area in fashion, where I have done some ad campaigns, editorial shoots, and e-commerce as a freelance art director for Aura Magazine and Enzomnia Magazine. At this point, I am working on writing a book and moving to my next academic adventure by applying for a PhD in African History which will enhance my job as an Art Director.
