Every year ESMOD Berlin offers a practical insight in the educational topics and conveys new ways of drawing or modelizing. The intensive 2-week summer course provides students with the initial tools to beginner-level fashion design and pattern making and gives an inside view on how it is to be a student at ESMOD Berlin.

Stilism & Modernism

The intensive 2-week course consists of the two principal modules of the traditional ESMOD method, Stilism and Modelism, the course provides an overview on the creative process in an Atelier.

With a 2D development of a conceptual garment in means of visual research, sketching and illustrating in a variety of techniques on the one hand, and a 3D construction of a piece in the means of volume research, draping and thus pattern making on the other hand, students will gain a broad perspective on the skills required to create fashion.


In this summer course, you'll gain insight into the art of draping and the development of garments directly on the mannequin. Through learning classical and contemporary modeling techniques, you will focus on fully understanding pattern construction in three dimensional shapes.

  • Material preparations
  • Finding volumes of different clothing items by moulage on the mannequin

  • Definition of seams by positioning of Bolduc
  • Final drawing of the moulage
  • Pattern making and marking of draped moulage
