Silhouettes in Fashion Design : Trapezoid Silhouettes in Fashion Design
The next silhouette that you use to build
something upon, looks like, like I said these are all shapes and not actual garments, but
the next one does actual kind of parallel a garment. A trapeze dress is in the shape
of a trapezoid. Hmmm. Wonder where the correlation is. I don’t know, could it be a name? But
a trapezoid shape goes in the shape of a trapezoid. I can’t really think of any other way to say
that, except that it’s going to be narrower at the top, and then it’s going to billow,
not billow, but it’s going to angle out to the bottom, which is wider. It’s almost a
line, but it’s an exaggerated a line. A line typically is going to be something that’s
softer. A trapezoid shape, in order to do that, you have harsh lines, and then you’ll
do a trapeze dress. You can soften it like that, but it still retains its, its trapezoidal
shape. You don’t, be, this is not a garment. Remember, remember, remember. So add sleeves.
It doesn’t have to be a trapeze dress without sleeves, just do whatever you want and whatever
makes you happy. Just draw it.
