Croquis (meaning “sketch” in french) is the term used for the schematic figures that fashion designers draw. Sometimes having a sketch will help you get your design ideas across and nailed down before you start any part of the sewing production process. Although there’s no geek girl this season on Project Runway 3, Katherine Gerdes, a graduate of RISDI (just like Diana Eng), has put up a tutorial on her blog on how to draw a basic croquis and create a portfolio of poses you like. So that when it comes to designing, you can get started quickly. [ via ] Link.
