With expert guidance from the colour authorities at Pantone, this sketchpad is the ultimate tool for designing chic and colourful fashion looks with confidence. Sixty stylish colour palettes curated from Pantone colour chips repeat throughout the first half of the sketchbook, followed by blank palettes for when aspiring designers are ready to create their own colour combos. And as with the original Fashion Sketchpad, more than 400 figure templates that disappear when photocopied, eliminating the need to fuss with light boxes or tracing paper.
Tamar Daniel has worked at Topshop and designed clothes for Anthropologie. The stars of Desperate Housewives have worn her designs. Noticing the need for fashion flats templates, she created Hokey Croquis, a line of tools for fashion designers, which receives specific consumer feedback along with monthly input from an advisory board, which includes fashion illustrators and bloggers, designers at Nacisco Rodriguez, Anthropologie, Alice and Olivia, Elie Tahari, and Helmut Lang, and also students and teachers at Pratt, SCAD, FIDM, FIT, AI, AAU, Philadelphia U, Drexel, Marist, and more. Pantone Inc. is the world-renowned authority on colour. For more than 45 years Pantone has been inspiring design professionals with products, services, and technology for the colourful exploration and expression of creativity. In 1963, Lawrence Herbert, Pantone's founder, created the Pantone Matching System, a book of standardized colour in fan format - an innovative system for identifying, matching, and communicating colours to solve the problems associated with producing accurate colour matches in the graphic arts community. Pantone has since expanded its colour matching systems to include other colour-critical industries such as digital, fashion, home, plastics, architecture, interiors, and paint. Today, the Pantone name is known worldwide as the standard language for accurate colour communication, the definitive international means for selecting, specifying, matching, and controlling colours.
