Fashion sketches are something I have always fancied. Even as an 8 year old girl in a REALLY small town in India, I remember being mesmerized by this Ritu Beri sketch in a magazine that my aunt got from Delhi. I think a well done sketch is as poetic as those first 3 lines a writer writes on a piece of tissue-paper before turning it into a bestseller because that’s where the story really begins, of beautiful clothes and fashion as a whole.
So, I literally jumped with joy when I stumbled upon New York based Fashion Institute of Technology’s flickr album containing archived Dior sketches from iconic fashion store – Bergman Goodman. I spent an hour just staring at these beautiful sketches and later realized they had more albums showcasing the sketches of many other genius design houses like Chanel, Lanvin, Balenciaga, Balmain and Cardin (what happened to Cardin? well, that’s another story). I have picked some of my favourite sketches (I’m Picky C after all, remember? :P). Here they are, enjoy.
Now for some really beautiful, witty sketches by Bonnie Cashin. They speak so much about her personality as a very fashion fluent woman with a lovely sense of humor.
All these sketches are property of The Department of Special Collection and FIT archives. Click here to see more.
