Drawing fashion

Fashion design is the drawing and evaulating of drawings related to textile or clothing garments. In fashion there are 3 sections the mass market, haute couture and ready to wear clothing.

In this section we will show what equipment to use, how to draw a design template, how to evaulate your design and how to gather inspiration.

Equipment .

When designing garments for a range you need to use the correct equpiment and stationary to make sure you can make the drawing as detailed as possible:

– Semi transparent paper {To trace your fashion templates and see the line guide}

– Fashion templates {A silhouette of a garment e.g t-shirt}

-Lineguide or lined paper with a thick dark line {To write next to your design}

-Collection of pencils {2b for light sketch and 4b for emphasis or underline}

-Metal ruler {Use for drawing straight lines}

-Putty rubber {Creates no excess mess}

-Colouring pencils and watercolours

-Paper clips {To attach Semi transparent paper to line guide or template}

fashion template .

A fashion template is unique to you it is a garment drawing which you can trace to save you time next time you are designing the same garment. It works best for shoes as they are the hardest garment to draw and takes forever.

The best thing to do is to use a 2b or b pencil to shade template outline and keep rubbing out mistakes and altering your design utill your happy with it and then you can add detail and emphasis or outlining.

To use the template on your next design you need to get your Semi transparent paper and clip it infront of your template. Then using a ligh pencil trace the outline of the template and then add your detail and then your alterations like logo, branding and design etc.

Evaulating your designs .

The evaulating is the most important bit to your design so somebody else can understand the garment and can image what it looks like.

The evaulation should include:

-Garment type {e.g. polo shirt}

-Material {e.g. polyester}


-brading or logos

-Details {Elastic cuffs Or thick seam}

-Style {Printed design or stripped}


The description should be writen on a piece of paper to the left hand side with the product design to the right hand side with a title.

Inspiration .

When designing you need to get inspiration otherwise you will run out of ideas. You should collect research once a month so you are always on track as fashion moves quite quickly and you can easily get left behind.

I would recommend usign a variety of sources inc:

– Fashion retailers

– Fashion brands

– Catwalk garments

– Magazines

– History

– Books & museums

– Culture

You can create a folder on you computer to save photos colelcted from the interent or you can Collect magazine cutouts, cliparts, material squares and print offs to make moodboards.

Thank you
