Fall Fashion Week Sketches

One of my favorite things about fashion/design, other than actual articles of clothing or accessories, are the actual sketches. Looking at a sketch you can decifer the style, the mood, and attitude and really get into the head of the designer/artist.  I came across some really cool sketches from this year’s Fall Fashion Week and thought you guys may enjoy. I love looking at sketches from different designers to see the different shapes and sketching styles, its pretty neat. Let me know what you think:

 Rachel Roy and Anna Sui

 Dennis Basso and Elie Tahari
** in thisDennis Basso sketch I particularly love the movement of the coat. Its really beautiful.

 Kimberly Ovitz & Nannette Lepore


Love these sketches! What do you guys think? Do you find them inspiring as well?

On the Radar: New Shoe Collection by Rachel Roy

Following in the steps of her mentor, Manolo Blahnik, designer Rachel Roy will be able to tack “shoe designer,” to her name.  The Shoes line will consist of about 30 styles and will be availabe for purchase in August of this year. Judging by what we can see from these photos we can expect to see clean lines, color blocking, leather and suede…some pretty sweet styles. Rachel says, “I don’t want shoes unless they are strong and sexy. I don’t want them to be just strong or just sexy,” says Roy. “[A strong and sexy look] represents the woman I want to be.”



Interesting, I couldn’t agree with her more!  I love her clothing and look forward to checking out those sexy and strong shoes. Will you??
