Glossary of Fashion Design Your Fashion Design tool list - Sketching silhouettes

Next video is your very first contact with quick, basic sketching along with an introduction to the "Research to find inspiration process"

Personal Work: 

  • Find pencil skirts sketches on the Internet and train to sketch using S4FD Silhouette beneath your paper sheet.
  • Search and gather items (pictures, collages, objects, books, fabrics, pieces of material, trims...) that are inspiring you and begin to build your board

Your Fashion Design teacher, Anya Camau, shows you how she'd do it herself

Personal Work:

  • Go on with your own research then go on deeper with what is appealing you most
  • Begin to valuate combinations of colours, shapes, fabrics, trims etc. Then sort out 2 or 3 of them.

How quick drafts can help you to imagine and find out what details are matching what you have in mind. 

Personal Work:

  • Look for fashion pictures on the Internet and build list of details you can add to your pencil skirt: pockets, pleats, ruffles, ruches, appliques, holes, painting, embroideries, trims, buttons, zips...
  • With S4FD silhouette underneath your paper sheet, sketch your pencil skirt and experiment each of them until you find out YOUR best ones according to your current feeling, mood, inspiration
