A-Z Fashion Terms C


Croquis. Pronounced Krow-ki; a French word that means to “sketch.” A term frequently used in the fashion industry when it comes to drawing or “sketching” designs.

Basic 9 Head. This is how they teach you in design school how to “correctly” sketch. However, I don’t follow the rule because everyone is different.

Full rendered croquis. As you can see, everyone’s style is different when it comes to their designs and sketches.

Some of my croquis I’m working on for a collection for later this year/early next year.

There are some great templets out there such as Designer Nexus, that you can download and either print or use in Adobe Illustrator. I personally prefer hand sketching but Illustrator is an amazing tool. (example of a templet)

How are your sketching skills?
