Hazel's fabulous main blog, 'The Art Room Plant' has a wealth of inspiration for students who will be developing fashion ideas and creating sourcebooks. So, that will be all of you please!
Bookmark it, follow it and prepare to be inspired. This post about artist Alex Dipple is a great example of how to generate fabric simulation and pattern. How about backgrounds for fashion illustrations? Collaged dotty dresses? Patterned collars? Start to experiment. Enjoy.
