Fashion sketch is always a good method of recording or working out ideas for fashion design – the art of the application of design and aesthetics or natural beauty to clothing and accessories.
It’s more free for the designer to demonstrate his/her idea on the sketchbook as the model is under his/pen pencil and it’s free to use any color, clothes and even hairstyles. In this post, you will enjoy a collection of 50 amazing fashion sketches and illustrations done by different artists.
24-years old, Soleil Ignacio is a very talented fashion designer from Manila, Philippines. Trendy, colorful and mysterious at the same time these illustrations are full of passion.

A bit of brightness and everything looks different. And again unity of oppositions comes to our view. Very feminine and extraordinary gown is contrasted with tattoos on the arms of the model. And that has a very interesting effect. Elegance and boldness, femininity and roughness. One more contrast can be found in colors – black and yellow, like night and day that also grab our attention.
Fur is back in fashion. I guess everyone remember that during last several years designers used only faux fur or did not use it at all, but now it’s back. The illustration displays an unusual dress with interesting usage of fur. Once again, elegant colors, black and white, are used to create fascinating effect.
The same colors, but we have got a different image. This gown drags out attention with lacy feminine forms. Everything, natural make-up and simple hairstyle concentrate us only on the dress and its design.
As we can see, on these illustrations by Caroline Andrieu we observe women. It does not matter how many art works she made, because every piece is different and unique. Simple and delicate dress accentuates women beauty. Soft tones, gentle lines are features of her works. Also very important fact is that almost in every work artist tries not to accentuate women faces. It’s like her intension is to show women all over the word that they can be on the places of her models.
This illustration is like going back in time. At least in my case the beginning of the 20th century appears in my head, school uniforms or uniforms for the boarding schools. Oppositions are combined on this illustration. We can see connection of soft and rough lines that create interesting effect. But openness of the dress brings us back to the present time. Old and new, long gone and modern. This gown is like remembering our past but not forgetting about our present.
Inslee Haynes is one of the newest descoveries in the world of fashion and now her works are all over the Internet.

She is dressed rather sophisticated, but we cannot call it dull. Simple but feminine.
Just a picture of a woman, sitting somewhere in the city, dressed casually can be amazing. In her interview Inslee Haynes said that models for her illustrations are ordinary women, whom she can meet in the city streets or even herself.

Another illustration by Elke Ines Szilier portrays a Cleopatra of our time. This gown is a combination of ancient and modern styles.
