    Right, what is the main jist of a storyboard in fashion design? I often tend to turn it into a moodboard rather than a storyboard....

    So.. storyboard includes final illustration? --> colour? :unsure:

    Ok im just confusing myself even more :lol:

    As Far As I Know = AFAIK

    Well I've been a designer in the fashion trade for 13 years and some of my clients call them mood boards and some call them storyboards.

    I'm British BTW.

    Oh i see.

    The thing is though, my fashion teacher (also british), who has also been in the fashion business for a long time has distinguished a storyboard and moodboard, i just dont seem to get it... :unsure:

    Thank you Purr, although after reading that it only boosts my knowledge of moodboarding :lol: and still leaves me confused with storyboards.

    So a storyboard .. e.g you design eveningwear, so you show panel illustrations of this 'evening gown' in a restaurant or something? :unsure: but then what else? As it obviously needs some kind of flow and sequence to it lol

    my impression is a modd board consists in the main idea of your design whereas in the storyboard you assmble it. for example, a mood board would be "black skirt, green top, spring-summer" and the storyboard would consist in a croquis and accurate details of the fabrics and the "feeling" (eg. romantic, chic, sporsty) you want to give to them.

    but i am only guessing :blush:

    So, what my clients call a story/mood board is neither of those things.

    What I've always done /what everyone I've ever worked with has ever done, is to get a great big board and stick loads of pictures on it (cut from magazines, usually) to give the general mood or story for the trend.

    I sometimes work for big UK highstreet chainstores (New Look, Marks and Spencer are two examples) so I'm sure they'd have told me by now if I was getting it wrong.

    Perhaps things have changed :innocent:
