Inspiring Beauty: Be the Designer

Designers use croquis as the base for sketching garments. Ask students to select a garment in Inspiring Beauty that speaks to them, and using a croqui template, sketch it!

Remind students that, when drawing a figure for fashion design or styling, it is not necessary to show details in the face, hands, or feet. Use lines, shapes, and color to convey the image. In fact, parts of the figure that are not part of the clothing or accessories can be a single color. This unifies the figure and keeps the attention on the fashion! Consider having students work in pairs or small groups and compare efforts.
