Fashion Design Portfolio and Fashion Sketchbook

Our fashion croquis and rendered fashion figures sketches are a #1 choice for a quick sketching designs in fashion sketchbook as well as complete fashion illustration drawings. With that in mind we've also included a few fashion layouts that can be used as the sketchbook pages or serve as an idea for the fashion design portfolio.
Definition: A fashion design portfolio is a collection of samples put together by a fashion designer to show off his or her skills to a prospective employer or fashion school. A typical fashion design portfolio should include fashion illustrations, an inspiration or mood board with textile swatches, flat sketches & “floats”, and CADs.

We apologize for all the blah blah. It's a google's requirement for indexing the pages. We'd be happy to skip on writing; alas, without it you'll never find us :(

Flat Fashion Sketches, CADs, and Specs in Fashion Design

If you're a professional fashion designer we strongly recommend to focus on flat sketches and CADs (rendered flats), rather than spending most of your time drawing fashion illustrations, which are rarely used in the apparel industry. On the job you'll be spending most of your time to create fashion presentation boards featuring CADs and technical packages to make sample requests. 'Technical packages' or 'sample requests' include detailed flats (flat fashion sketches) and specs (see our 'how to spec a garment article' and visit our store for a comprehensive instructional ebook spec templates).
In Designers Nexus we offer the largest assortment of professional fashion flat sketches in vectors (Adobe Illustrator) and bitmap (jpeg, PNG) formats. You can use our extensive fashion flats collection as either as fashion sketching reference or as fashion templates to create flats, technical drawings, and CADs.
