    Hi, I love the videos, they look amazing! I downloaded the fashion sketches, but there are obvious watermarks on top of the models, so when I draw my designs over the top, the words are going to be over the top. Is there are a way to get rid of that? Thank you.

  • Abi July 31, 2017 10:51 am

    Hi! love the videos! they are so helpful, I am doing my year 12 design on the design of a wedding dress and your videos are really helpful. I am struggling a bit with what else to include in my project and was wondering whether I could get your opinion? What design elements or techniques do you think should be considered when designing a wedding dress? (like different fabrics, shape, culture etc.)?
    Thanks so much 🙂
