Fashion Design




Design for a purpose

We need to know the purpose and reason when designing a fashion. Is this garment going to keep us warm or to be purely functional? What are our customers want and need? Then refer back to the History of Fashion and present fashion to get ideas.

For uniforms is it for blue or white-collar workers such as for factory with heavy machinery around or lots of equipment. The colour of garment might need to be dark to disguise any oil marks. Simple and convenience pockets for accommodate equipment’s (such as pens, tools).

Retailers’ uniforms dealing with the public will need to be comfortable, attractive and neat.

Wedding party or Bride for special occasion is the customer choice. She is owner must be please to make the final choice.


Ready to wear garments will need to be affordable and inexpensive. It needs to create according the Season to meet majority.


Figure Types

Knowing your Figure Type is important when designing for others. Figure Types are tall, short, slim, board, triangle (bigger at the top than the bottom) and pear shaped (bigger at the bottom than the top). 

Slim Hips – Make sure the garments skim the hips. Pleated skirts are very bulky, but the narrow hipped figure can afford the extra bulk, wear low waists or belts for perfection.

Small Waist – This figure is great for waist or shaped garments, full skirts under the belt look good too.

Long Neck – Can afford to wear the fussy lace and frills of the era.

Big Hips – Don’t wear light colour below the waist, seams or strips that go across at the hip-line.

Big Bust – Side buttoning can be an advantage. Don’t wear fussy frills, flounces or pockets on the bust.

Big Waist – Skim past the waist don’t wear tight fitting belts or waistlines.

Board Shoulders – Cap sleeves can be attractive or extended shoulder-lines but avoid shoulder pads.

Short Neck – V-shape will be good. Don’t wear anything big or fussy at the neckline.
