The Fashion Sketchpad: 420 Figure Templates for Designing Looks and Building Your Portfolioby Tamar Daniel
Synopses & Reviews
For Gertieandrsquo;s New Fashion Sketchbook, Gretchen Hirsch teamed up with illustrator Sun Young Park to reinvent traditional figure templatesandmdash;known as croquisandmdash;for the 21st century. Instead of the unnaturally skinny, tall, and frequently off-balance croquis the fashion industry has been sketching on for decades, this game-changing alternative presents hundreds of realistically sized and proportioned female forms in balanced, lifelike poses. In addition, Park has rendered the croquis with multiple tracing lines, allowing the sketcher to follow the lines that most accurately reflect the body shape desired. Also included are an overview of the design and sketching process and a visual history of garment component styles, all to make it easier to create fashion sketches for women of all shapes and sizes.
The ultimate tool for aspiring fashion designers who love to sketch clothes but dont have the skills (or the patience!) to draw proportional figures, this sketchpad is filled with 420 figure templates in 20 different fashion-forward poses. Printed in a specially formulated Pantone color, the figures disappear from view when photocopied or scanned, eliminating the need to fuss with light boxes or tracing paper. An illustrated garment glossary showing the distinguishing details between a caftan, a sheath, a maxi, and so on—plus additional resources—help fashion rookies create the wardrobes of their dreams.
