^^^what utensils did you use for those sketches? they are awesome. I use pencil but it doesn't look that good.

What is recommended? paint, crayons, chalk etc.....?

^^ Watercolors look THE BEST when doing fashion sketching. Pencils can look very nice, but watercolors really make it look professional.

When doing black outfits, how do you use watercolor? Because when watercolor is really transparent and weak - if that makes sense lol.

Iīve just started (trying) to make fashion drawings. I'll be wanting to apply to a university in 2.5 years. So all I want is to learn how to do better. So please anyone who is a pro, help me out here.. because drawing isn't my strongest skill

ps, is it true, if you want to do 'something' in fashion, you always have to be able to draw. Because at all teh univertstiy websites i looked, they say you have to have like a drawing porfolio. But do you even have to draw if you want to be like a stylist? (sorry this is a bit off topic, but if anyone knows the answer, please)

^^^That kind of drawings are kind of useless...I's important to understand the clothes, how they are made, the faces does not matter, it's even better if you don't draw them...try to make some outlines in black, be a bit more concrete...If you want to draw clothes, concentrate on the ideas...

Just some advice..,

hi guys
I've become an accomplice in this project called Spicy Toast, and I'd love to share a few of our past designs..



It's nothing huge, we just sell on ebay...some of you guys have your own collections!
Any thoughts'd be appreciated

Thanks! Yes, they're under spicy toast on ebay, but these are all things from the past. The most recent things are at the top, but they've sold already! Just for reference, every Thursday we post about 4-5 new tops
