Drawing at LCF

#DRAWFASHION is London College of Fashion’s annual fashion illustration competition supported by Cass Art.

Applications have now closed. Winners will be announced in September and will be accompanied by an exhibition in London. Check back for more details.

This competition was open to all current undergraduate and postgraduate students across the UK, celebrating the deeply analytical and emotional skills of drawing and fashion illustration, art forms that capturing the wonder of the fashioned body. The competition encouraged students to explore their fashion design practice through observation, abstract thinking, traditional and digital drawing techniques and other mediums that drawing has used, in the process of development, such as ceramics, metalwork, tapestry and beyond.
