Exploring -kaftans kimonos roots of fashion design sketching and construction
Caftans or Kaftans, Kimonos (both traditional and modified)take the complex world of fashion making and break it down. Dirndl skirts and circle skirts do this too.
So often I see students and designers stopping themselves in the fashion design process by making things so much more complicated than they need to be!!!!
Using the roots of fashion design can make a huge difference and bring you back to your fashion-making capability and creativity.
it’s beautiful to remember that fabric was so precious once that nobody wanted to cut it. That clothes fit everyone, beautifully.
ALSO IMPORTANT : remember that squares, rectangles, circles and triangles are fundamental components of fashion design and fashion making with INFINITE possibilities.
They’re even easier to sketch! But not at all boring.
Don’t underestimate the power of kaftans kimonos roots of fashion design sketching and construction, including dirndl skirts and circle skirts. Zandra Rhodes is one excellent example of a designer who knew this! There is a lecture all about her in FAshion Design Infusion, too!
TODAY in this live replay video, let’s explore. Why do we assume that it has to be so hard, so complicated, … and often…. so labor intensive and ill-fitting like ready-to-wear?
Are we ready to experiment with something more immediate and explore?
Why not dive into immediacy, improvisation? Explore using basic sewing and measuring, sketching, pattern cutting and design skills.
So that you can MAKE FASHION NOW!
