My New Favorite Sketchbook: Fashionary!

As some of you may know, I work for an online game where I, among other things, design clothes for our characters, making me basically a digital fashion designer. I love designing clothes and I make tons of sketches every week when making our collections. This brings me to the wonder of my recent discovery: Fashionary! It's a sketchbook for fashion designers and illustrators and it's absolutely amazing. It has lots of info on garments, measurements, proportions etc. but best of all it has faded figure outlines on every page. This makes it soooo easy to design consistent outfits and items, and the outlines are so thin that you can draw other things on the pages without them messing up your sketches. It's simple and easy and I just can't seem to put it down. You can either get a version with female figures or with men. I'd highly recommend Fashionary if fashion drawing is something you love like I do!


  1. Thanks very much for your mention Aimee, glad you are loving the book. :)

  2. You're welcome and thanks for making such a fantastic sketchbook! It's a wonderful tool for my work. :-) Ooh, and might I suggest a unisex version, so you can carry around collections for both sexes in one book? Just a thought. :D

  3. Thanks for your suggestion! I thought an unisex version before we released the menswear version. But at that time, we found that some designers actually use the womenswear as mens~
