Folder: Fashion Sketches

Definition: Fashion Sketches are rough, unfinished drawings of clothing sketches, fashion figures sketches, or fashion models wearing apparel designs, and are used as a fast way of getting design ideas on paper. A fashion sketch may just remain a scribble in a fashion sketchbook, or it may eventually lead to a polished fashion drawing. The designer might also choose to use a sketch for fashion illustration by including it in a fashion design portfolio or presentation board.

Freehand Fashion Sketches & Rough Drawings

We’ve created this gallery of freehand fashion sketches and rough drawings to provide designers with some examples of fashion design sketches to help differentiate a fashion sketch from a fashion drawing. Our free downloads of fashion sketches show the initial stage of fashion design drawing, but they can also serve as a fashion sketch template to demonstrate different drawing styles and as a reference for how to draw fashion sketches and clothing sketches.
