Fashion Sketchbook Inspiration

In line with my recent posts about sketching your design ideas, I've been looking for inspiration on creative ways to fill the pages of my Fashionary. I hope you will find the following as inspiring as I do!

The colour palette of these sketches was was caught my eye here.
Huge weakness for the geometry of these sketches by Thomas Tait.

The monkey sketch bellow shows this process of thinking through drawing pretty well. The designer started with the idea of the monkey, then pushed it as far as she could go, ending up with this fur coat.

I love Madalynne's post-modern collages!

Oooh, look at the clean lines of these sketches by Adrian Alphona...

This is Karl Lagerfeld's fashion sketchbook. Interesting to see the thought process of the greats, no?

A sketch from the designers at Forever 21:

Some Yves Saint-Laurent sketches, which remind me Marimekko for some reason.

I always loves line drawings like this one. Not a fashion sketch per se but no less inspiring to me.

There is more to fashion sketches than sketching actual clothes:

Thanks for reading everyone, and I hope today's post was able to inspire you.


  1. Very cool! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oooh, I LOVE fashion art too... these are some gorgeous samples. Thanks for posting these!

  3. These are all cool but I have to disagree with you on F21. They're not designers, they steal stuff from designers and crank that stuff out in hideous sweatshops across the world. They're bad, bad 'people' and their social, environmental and IP misdeeds are well documented online. Run away from them-runaway! XD


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! Comments are moderated on posts older than 20 days, so they won't appear immediately. :-)
