Your Instructor

Chloe Takahashi

After getting my finance/business degree, I worked in investment banking. In 2019, I decided to follow my heart and passion in fashion/art.  Along with my job, I started drawing and began working as a self-taught illustrator in New York.

I was determined to post my work online weekly, and my IG followers grew to 41K and Red Book followers 19K in China. Thanks to my social media presence, I was able to receive commission works pretty quickly. 

Now I left my corporate job and work as a full-time illustrator and founder of my own company. I truly enjoy being in the creative field, working with renowned magazines and top fashion brands!

Diving into fashion illustration was the best decision I made, but it wasn't easy doing it alone. I made this course to share with you everything I learned from my hard work over the years and fast track your learning!
