Hi, folks. In this clip, I'm going to teach you how to make fashion sketches. Basically, the information I'm going to give you here is what you need going in when you're sitting down to design a whole series of different looks and outfits -- what you ought to have in front of you. Obviously, the blank page -- very important -- and a great amount of space to work with would be good. It is recommended, especially during preliminary design, that you use something that you can go back and correct with either a pencil or some sort of eraser-capable drawing utensil. For your sake, I will just use a sketch pencil right now because you can easily erase things, make changes, corrections. That would be an important tool to have at the early stages. Then, basically, as you're sitting down to create the different designs, really have an idea of how this is going to work practically because, obviously, this is just step one of many, many steps, which will ultimately lead to you creating these outfits in reality. So really take in the human form that you have in front of you -- the model -- that the outfit is going to rest on. Figure out how things are going to really work and sometimes not work. Be aware of all the possibilities and basically just allow yourself to think outside the box, but also being very much aware of the fact that this is going to have to be a...hopefully, a practical outfit that an actual human being will wear. So be sure to sit down as you're designing your early sketches with that in mind.
