Step-by-step courses to grow your skills + discover your authentic style + build your thriving biz.
For fashion designers + fashion illustrators + surface pattern designers (and aspiring to be) 😉
As you’re learning + growing your skills, discovering your style, or trying to start your biz, you get lost + confused more often than you’d like to admit. And there’re so many things to do and think about that it’s hard to do anything.
I know how it feels (I’ve been there! And sometimes, I’m still on the rollercoaster :P), and I know that having someone who would help me in my journey would’ve been fantastic, but I didn’t have anyone and I had to figure all out by myself (I still am).
But, you don’t have to be alone, and certainly, you don’t have to figure it all out by yourself.
That’s why I founded Fashion Step-by-Step + the Fashion School inside it.
To help you in every step of the way, whether you’re just starting out growing your skills, trying to figure out and discover your authentic style, or making the leap and building your business (trying to make it thrive along the way).
I’m here for you. And there’s a course to help you tackle specifically what you need.
So, find out more about the courses, book your spot, and start making your dreams happen! 😊

What my Students are Saying
I adore Karen’s courses! After practicing with illustrations, now I’m able to do sketches, and I’m not using cheat-sheets anymore 😉 I’m so excited about being able to draw something nice, especially when I’ve never done this before!

Karen’s explanations, as well as her videos, have truly empowered me to be less fearful and draw everyday thanks to the easy process. The first glimpse at her lessons has melted self-limiting beliefs away.

WOW! Everything is put together so nicely, and the information is presented in such a great way to facilitate learning. I feel that I have learned so much already! I’ve researched guides for fashion drawing online before, and this is the best one I have seen so far!! This is AWESOME!! I find this to be one of the most useful tools!

…this is my first time participating in this type of course, and oh my gosh!… Karen’s wonderful, and I’m so glad I enrolled. All the lessons have been a total lifesaver, time-saver, and even money-saver (I was spending so much on paper!), and I can’t tell you how happy I am to have come across this super helpful site and amazing course…
