How about Fashion Sketching again?

One hidden talent hobby of mine is sketching. I have been sketching since five years old, from stick drawings, to cartoon figures and animes. Duringย  high school, I started my knack for fashion (thanks to gazillions of magazine browsing, hence Vanity Fair and Elle) and discovered my talent for fashion designing. I have not tried putting my works to life yet, but for sure one of these days a I will. ๐Ÿ™‚ Since I’m quite busy with work and some other stuff, I put sketching aside for quite a while.

Something for Fall 2008

Fashion Sketch for Fall 2008 - Roanne Vista

Here’s something I’ve done last year in full color. I have so many sketches that are rarely enhanced with color (usually pencil and/or ink). Pardon for the resolution, ‘coz I just took a picture of it using my camera phone. ๐Ÿ˜› This one was my take for Fall 2008. It’s a fusion of something classy and quirky, hence the single breasted brown trench jacket (I’m thinking of using corduroy for the collar, sleeve hemline and pocket accents and wool for the rest) and fancy strapless v-neck top (it’s a yellow-orange button-down strapless top with orange floral pattern embroidery). I paired it up with black tights and blue denim miniskirt (should have used a darker blue color then) for the bottom. Then, tan brown boots as footwear. I was trying to be playful with colors, avoiding being so monochromatic and boring. ๐Ÿ˜›

Medium is Staedtler pencil in HB, Staedtler Lumocolor pen in black and Faber-Castell watercolor pencils (used dry). ๐Ÿ™‚

Waking my Ideas for Fall 2009

Looks like everything’s pretty much dark hued or neon, structured, dressy and hmm…brocade! I saw a lot of brocade details for Fall 2009, particularly in Miu Miu, Lanvin and Marc Jacobs collections. I still see the presence of tights and embellished sheer stockings. I will share a few things I love about this season on my next post. xx
