Review:
This is not the stereotypical girlie fashion product. It is a serious curriculum for the budding fashion designer. Contents include a spectrum of 24 good quality colored pencils and a matching number of colored markers; a 16-page guide to 16 parts of an outfit (e.g. collars, necklines, blouses, sleeves, jackets) with as many as eight variations of each; sketch pads for preliminary ideas for dresses, purses and shoes, with space for notes on colors, fabrics and specs; pads of newsprint and tracing paper; a packet of cards on which to paste fabric swatches, and textured “rubbing” cards for making patterns on fabric; five pockets for filing fashion designs; a lesson on color theories, and photographs of fabrics and patterns. The 18-page pad for the final design presentation has on each page the cartoon-like face of one of four ethnically diverse models for whom the fashions are designed. Everything is stored in a sturdy packet with a magnetic closure.
