Synopses & Reviews
Inspired by the hands-on, write-in, look-and-feel idea of a sketchbook, encourages children to think through, write up, and sketch out their own fashion ideas through a series of engaging questions and visual exercises. Here children follow the process of a real fashion designer to create their own collections. This includes finding inspiration; making a mood board; collecting examples; selecting colors and a defining silhouette; experimenting with fabrics, prints, and patterns; assembling a "lookbook" to show off the new creations; and organizing a runway show. Step by step, children sketch, collect, cut, and paste ideas into the book to build the designs for their own unique fashion collections.
