  • 1. ELEMENTS OF DESIGNShape and Line
  • 2. Shape The shape of a garment is its form or silhouette  It is the overall outline  It is created by the cut and construction of the garment
  • 3. Shape The shape of an outfit is the outline when seen from a distance. Since shape can be seen from a distance, it will be noticed first. It is a major factor in viewer’s first impression Clothing can reveal or disguise the natural contour of the body
  • 4. Shape Full, wide clothing shapes make people look larger. They look best on people who are slim. Trim, compact silhouettes make people look smaller.
  • 5. Shape When choosing clothes, a person should decide where his or her shape is best and feature a silhouette that highlights that feature.
  • 6. Line A line is a distinct, elongated mark, as if drawn by a pen  1. Lines have direction, width and length  2. The element of line can play up a persons good points and play down the bad ones.  Eyes follow lines
  • 7. Line 3. Line suggest movement or rhythm- where they lead the eyes. Lines lead the eye up and down and side to side. 4. Line can emphasize or create height, conceal weight, or focus the attention on a certain area.
  • 8. Types of Line- Straight Straight lines are bold and severe. They suggest dignity, power, and formality. They give steadiness and stability. If overdone, they can make an outfit look stiff.
  • 9. Types of Line- Curved Curved lines can be rounded and circular or somewhat flattened out. They increase the size and shape of the figure.  Circles are closed lines, so they stop the eye entirely.  Curved lines are less formal than straight ones. They give a soft, smooth, graceful and flowing feeling. They can accent the natural curves of the body.
  • 10. Types of Line- Jagged Jagged lines change direction abruptly and with sharp points like zigzags. Overused they can create a jumpy, confused feeling. Use them sparingly, since they are very noticeable. Jagged lines are appropriate for fun loving who do not need to create a serious image.
  • 11. Line Direction- Vertical Lines Vertical lines go up and down. They lead the eye up and down. They give the impression of height and slimness. They also give the feeling of dignity, strength and poise.  For the best effect, put vertical lines over an area of the body you want to look slimmer.
  • 12. Line Direction- Horizontal Lines Go from side to side. They carry the eye from side to side. They give the impression of less height and more width. Tend to give a relaxed, calm feeling.  Put horizontal stripes across parts of the body you want to look bigger.
  • 13. Diagonal Lines Are slanted. The degree of the slant determines their visual effect in clothes. If they have a vertical slant, they are slenderizing. If they have a horizontal slant, they add width. Diagonal lines draw attention to the areas where they are used. They give a feeling of action and strength.
  • 14. Line Applications 1. Structured lines are formed when parts of the garment are constructed.  They are seams, darts, edges of the garment.  They are the details that also create a visual interested.  They are a necessary part of the garment’s construction
  • 15. Line Applications 2. Decorative lines are created by adding details to the surface of clothing.  Theyare added to decorate the outfit and make it more interesting.
  • 16. Illusions with Lines In clothing, line often combines into designs that appear to form an arrow, or the letters T, I, or Y. these create optical illusions.
  • 17. Arrows Tend to deflect the gaze downward. They shorten the height of a person.
  • 18. “T” Lines Also stop the upward movement of the eye. Height is cut, but width is given to the top– the illusion of broad shoulders.
  • 19. “I Lines” Tend to give a vertical feeling that is contained at the top and bottom. Makes the body look taller and thinner.
  • 20. “Y” Lines Keep the gaze moving upward even farther. The appearance of height is given to the body of a “Y” line dress.
