Getting your Fashion Design Figure right!

Like all things in life, if you want to achieve good results you need to take things from the beginning and go step-by-step.

The first step in Fashion Design is to learn how to make a proportionate well-balanced figure.

Why is the Fashion Design Figure used so important?

1. It is like getting the right model to wear your outfit. The figure needs:

• to have the right proportions – so that the garment will also be in proportion
• to convey the right style in relation to the outfit
• to highlight the qualities of the designed garment.

2. The figure is the first tool in fashion design to promote the garment. Therefore, it needs to have realistic proportions so that the clothes it “wears” look/feel realistic as well.

3. With practice, when you understand the balance lines and proportions you can learn how to make different figure types and creative fashion designs for any occasion.

What makes for Good Fashion Design?

Do you have great design ideas but find it difficult to draw them? Fashion Drawing is a key skill in Garment Creation. It allows you to express your ideas visually and communicate them to clients and colleagues.

Make designs that can be made into beautiful garments.

A good Fashion Designer knows how to draw, and present their ideas in a way that is attractive and exciting, but also realistic and technically correct. One common pitfall for young designers is creating unrealistic designs that cannot be made up into ’real’ garments.

A good Fashion Designer must know how to create great design ideas that can also be technically implemented and realised into actual beautiful garments.

At eTelestia you can learn all the steps of the Product Development Cycle from how a garment is designed, how it is drafted and made-up as well as how to communicate this on paper.

How to develop your own Fashion Drawing Style!

The dream of all Fashion Designers is to create their own style that will make an impression and promote their work. To be creative in fashion design one needs to understand the basic principles of what one is designing.
The Creative Fashion Designer must:

• know the forms and their relationship, i.e. the figure and materials to be used
• know the desired function of the design, i.e. the occasion to be worn is it for sports, for evening wear or work wear or winter summer etc.
• know the meaning, the experience of the wearer i.e. is it a fashion item, is it a traditional item, is it a uniform etc. How do we want the person wearing this item to feel…?

Creating a unique style in Fashion is a knowledgeable process that requires expert know-hows and it needs to be well thought out.

Creative Fashion Design has little to do with being talented in drawing as many might thinkg. But itIt has more to do with understanding the basic principles of fashion design, which are: form, function & meaning, and knowing how to put these principles together.

eTelestia can help you acquire the skills to become creative and portray your ideas visually.

How to realise a Fashion Design Project!

Very often Fashion Designers are given a brief of requirements that they need to study, in order to prepare and deliver their Fashion Design Creation.
If you are a freelance designer, you may be the ‘initiator’ of such a brief yourself.

The basic points to look out in a Fashion Design Brief are to:

– understand explicitly what is asked of you;
– know your deadline;
– breakdown your work in tasks – make an ordered list;
– study and make a thorough research before starting your work, so that you don’t miss out anything or have to do things twice;
– manage your time – manage your work;
– be decisive and offer choices.

eTelestia online courses teach you not only the Fashion Design skills, but through the projects and assignments, how to manage your time and present your work professionally. This is an important success factor in the fashion industry that is so competitive and so dependent on time and seasons.
