  • 1. ELEMENTS OF FASHION By Sunil Talekar, Faculty, SOFT-Pune
  • 2. WHAT IS THE ELEMENT OF FASHION? • The components and elements in any apparel which gives a fashion look to that are elements of fashions. • Like in shirt the elements of fashions are * collar * cuff * placket * pocket * Yoke
  • 3. FUNDAMENTALS OF FASHION
  • 4. HAUTE COUTURE • French for “Fine Tailoring” • Design that predominated until the 1950’s • Made for the individual customer, look and fit take priority over the cost of materials and the time it takes to make • The most costly garments, ranging from $2,000-$40,000. • High price guarantees you have a one of a kind outfit or gown that fits you perfectly and has been designed with you in mind.
  • 5. DESIGNER LABEL • A cross between couture and mass market • Not made for individual customers, but great care is taken in the choice and cut of the fabric. • These clothes are made with high quality materials and mass produced only in small quantities to guarantee exclusivity. • They are costly. • Examples: Donna Karan, Yves St Laurent, Gucci
  • 6. MASS MARKET • Clothes to cater to a wide range of customers, producing ready-to-wear clothes in large quantities and standard sizes. • Less costly materials and construction techniques, creatively used, produce affordable high street fashion. • Standardized sizing is used, trims and notions are scaled down but still try to keep the look of Designer or Haute Couture. • Other names for mass market: ready- to-wear, off-the rack • Examples: Old Navy, Gap, Abercrombie and Fitch, H&M
  • 7. A FASHION YEAR Two main seasons Spring & Summer Autumn & Winter
  • 8. LIGHTWEIGHT FABRICS IN SUMMER
  • 9. HEAVIER FABRICS IN WINTER Both require a different fashion look and a new range of colors and fabric designs for the time of year.
  • 10. THE PLAN... Designers work a year in advance In the spring, the studio works for the spring/summer of the following year Once a collection is finished, on to the next!
  • 11. THE PLAN... Research Each collection is researched so that’ • all the items in it complement each other, • will be in style, • and have the particular look for which the company is known for.
  • 12. THE PLAN... Predicting Trends • A designers most difficult task is forecasting what will be in style for the coming years.
  • 13. THE PLAN... Predicting Trends • To do this, they know the past trends and look at repeats. They also purchase HIGH priced trend magazines.
  • 14. THE PLAN... Predicting Trends • Additionally they observe what succeeded with customers in the past.
  • 15. THEME A designer selects a theme that represents their collection. It can be a period in history, a foreign place, a range of colors, a type of fabric…
  • 16. THEME
  • 17. • A Mood Board is a summary of your collection’s inspiration and theme. • It’s a design tool that will help you remain focused and consistent as your line develops. • It’s also a great communication aid when explaining your vision to others (retailers, media etc.). • Magazine tears, fabric swatches, old photos, buttons, ribbons; basically any visual reference you desire are mounted onto a hard board. Be sure to give your story board a title, like a book or film”. WHAT IS MOOD BOARD
  • 18. 1. Research: Go to galleries, exhibition, watch the music videos, the latest fashion show, street fashion, specialty magazines from different part of the world (fashion, architecture, design…), go to boutiques. HOW TO MAKE MOOD BOARD 2. Take pictures of objects, scene and store front. Create a “mise en scene” related to your theme. 3. Write down a few thematic keywords you want to have in your design. 4. Combine two theme to create something new. Example: Punk and Aristocrat, Urban and Cosmic…
  • 19. 5. The presentation must be strongly themed, capturing the mood in a nut shell and should always be accompanied by a title. This can be determined by the fabrics: Natural Linens, the season: Summer Blues, or the merchandise: Metamorphosis… HOW TO MAKE MOOD BOARD 6. Cut out pictures that inspired you. Use anything you can find from magazines, your pc or mac, tissue paper, feathers, foil, string, fabric etc., books (not just fashion), your own photographs and collect fabric and paint swatches. But DONT go overboard, this can look messy.
  • 20. 7. Use a large sized board ( example 24”x18”) to lay out your images, your color swatches, fabrics and buttons…. This allow you to show a complete idea. HOW TO MAKE MOOD BOARD 8. Extract from the large board the essence of your theme. At this point usually use Photoshop + scanning and a smaller board. 9. Take a step back and critically look at what you’ve created to see if it matches your keywords and theme you defined earlier. 10. Show your mood board to 2 other people (from different social circles (two friend might give the same answers, but a friend and a peer might come up with totally different critiques).
