ok..i ll be the first one to post something in here
this is my first time drawing men's wear..mainly out of fun and curiousity
i enjoyed it alot
so...be nice! but do tell me what you guys like and dont like so i can improve
there's no certain style in these drawing..im testing different things
im undecided if i want to go into men's wear or women's wear in college..since im liking men's wear more than women's wear but women's wear is the basic
im scared to show
I really like this!! love the boots and suspenders (or braces) from the first pic... they both elongate so much the leg which is great!
i like the "cardigan" from the secondone here...
the boots on the third sketch look too high, but the blazer is amazing!!!
and finally, i woulndt wear the last jacket the pirate-feeling of the sleeve is not my style but the boots are, again, gorgeous!!!
so these are mines... the class-timetaking activity that is making my math grades go down!
i thiks these are my frist designs ever, besides a few non-cohesive drawing i had done before --> ment to be editorial/show pieces i wasnt exactly looking for wearability.they still need recoloring (althought it would mostly be B&W as it is) and i am also working on how should a knee lenght boot be so that, on a runway, the models legs look like these sketches (i'll post that another day)
the last sketch is a mariee dress.
as you may see it's about future, but there is also a little unplanned ethnicity and a tiny bit of 60's...
please state your opinion about these... even if you jsut wanna say it's trash...
Trust me you wouldnt believe how many people there are in the industry who can not draw!! Even when I was at Lcf, some of the students there were drawing round templates. I think people spend to much time worrying about the proportions of the model, hair style and appearnce that they neglect the actual clothing. Cads are flats which are usually drawn in illustrator. There are alot of people within the industry whose design skills are not great, so what they tend to do is photograph elements of a garment and attact to a spec for the manufacturer. There are ways round it, but the model thing is really frustrating to see!!!
to some point maybe
i still think that having a good art base really does help a designer to develope his or her ideas to a full extend..i mean..photogrpahs can only do so much...but if you can draw..you can create plus replicate almost anything
flat cads are important..i agree..but it is also harder to do than on a model...you can get away with things on a model that you cant with flat cads
i only do flat cads when i know im actually going to make the garment..even if i do..they arent that precise and professional..i ll leave that to school

Hey guys i have not posted nethin 4 quite a while but i have just graduated and wud appreciate sum feedback. I love this thread coz it gives the opportunity to view others work and to reflect upon our own. After all we design so that it can be seen not to keep it hidden away.
The images that i have posted are for knitted garments and accessories range that i produced for my degree show and exhibited at new designers.
I love incorcoparting textural ideas alongside my illustrations either in the way I paint them or by including fabric samples etc. This way I feel that you can fully explain your ideas, which is the purpose of the illustrations rather than for them to look good. I learnt this whilst I was in my final year as I did not have time to worry about perfecting them.
Hope this helps and hopefully you can help me to improve.
My fashion Designs for a Christmas Collection ( + pictures )
I'm new at this forum and right now I've got sort of a question for you... At the moment I am 18 years old and within a year I hope to start at a fashion academy in Amsterdam ( AMFI )... I'm building up my portfolio for already 1,5 year and I would like to hear from you what you think of my designs. Here are 4 of my latest designs from my "Christmas Collection
". Please give your comment!
Here are some of my designs! I hope you would like to tell what you think about them... I'm not at a fashion school (yet, I really hope to get accepted to the AMFI in Amsterdam next year, IF I gain my diploma this year. )
