Sample text

Most women in the real world stand around 5ft 5in or 5ft 6in, but a fashion figure needs to project greater height in order to better show off the clothes and communicate the look to an audience, usually through exaggerated gestural poses. Of course, a woman who might be 5ft 2in could be proportioned the same as a woman standing 5ft 10in but for fashion purposes neither would offer the desired ideal proportions for communicating the look. When drawing the fashion figure the look might refer to the prevailing styles of the season, such as the position of the fashion waist, or it may be an exploration of voluminous or contoured clothing styles with reference to influences from a particularly favoured model or celebrity.

1–3 What type of media do you like to use when you draw? I almost always start with pencil on layout paper. I rough out some good poses either from life, from my head or magazines. Then I love to ‘clean’ them up by loosely tracing them with Indian ink and a dip pen. This forces you to draw pretty quickly and gives you clean, meaningful lines with varying widths – I love using this method. Then I work by lightly filling in colour using pastels. I also make copies and use colour pencils, Pantone and highlight with gouache if necessary.
