These sketchbook pages include observational drawings, dresses and fabric experiments (including distressed materials) that are inspired by insects. Designs are developed from original first-hand experience, with clear links between initial observational work and subsequent explorations with fabrics and garment forms.
Mixed media sketchbook pages explore a wide range of tactile surfaces and structures. The properties of threads and fabric are investigated thoroughly, using a range of mediums and techniques, resulting in rich, exciting pages. Small, tidy annotation surrounds the pieces, providing thorough analysis without causing distraction from the work itself. - See more at: http://www.studentartguide.com/articles/fashion-design-sketchbooks#sthash.7Fzuot6D.dpuf
