Finding a good pose for your fashion figure drawings is like finding a needle in a haystack. Most magazines are filled with photographs of models in poses that are very difficult to illustrate in a way that doesn’t look super awkward – or they are cropped at the hips or knees. Well, I finally found a solution for this problem: cheesy prom dress websites!!
Seriously, I feel like I just tapped into the motherload of swingy-hippy-leggy-poses. There are even back views! Here are links to a few sites that I think you all might find helpful if you are on the hunt for a good pose for your croquis: PromMeUp.com, AtriaClothing.com, and LaFemmeFashion.com.
Speaking of prom, the Fashion Haus students at SCAD-Atlanta are busy little bees. They are working steadily away at refashioning prom dresses for Becca’s Closet (an organization created to honor the legacy of Rebecca Kirtman, a high school student from Florida who believed that every girl should be able to attend formal school events such as Prom and Homecoming despite their financial situation.)
Well done, Fashion Haus! We know that going through fashion school is daunting and that you have ZERO time on your hands. That makes it all the more meaningful that you are taking time out of your crazy sewing and sketching all-nighters to help those in need. We applaud you!
