I have been asked to participate in a gallery show that will focus on the first step in the creative process - the sketch. The idea is to showcase the idea behind the product and show an aspect of fashion design that people rarely see. Each designer will present a few sketches of their designs alongside the finished product. I am looking at my workbook and the various notes and doodles and simplistic drawings of dresses that only a paperdoll would wear. Hmm. I went to art school and took classes in fashion illustration from a vary beautiful blond Dutch woman named Iris, so I know that my sketches could be better. Much better. And taller.
