Example text

The clothing is made for the body, and the body is a frame for supporting the clothing or garment. In my opinion, these two elements cannot be separated. A certain style requires specific poses to carry out and represent the garment’s best appearance. Each time period in fashion holds its own appreciation of the beautiful. Women wore corsets throughout the centuries to flatten or accentuate the breasts, cinch waists, or pad shoulders; today, women get breast implants for a pair of full, large breasts.

The outer outline of the leg can be done with three broken lines: thigh, knee, and lower leg. The thigh has a big curve, starts from the hips, and stops at the knee level. The outer outline of the knee joint is relatively straight and stays behind both the thigh and lower leg lines; an indentation mark can be used to indicate the kneecap position. Be sure to attentively mold the calf curves and anklebones. The fullest curve point of the outer calf is higher than the fullest curve point of the inner calf.

Otherwise, the figure poses will lose their significant purpose. The purpose of defining body joints and contouring body silhouettes is to find what the figure is doing beneath the garment. The wrinkles and folds that appear on the garments are formed from beneath, where body joints are located. Wrinkles and folds will bring a sense of reality to a body in action. When the body moves, the wrinkles and folds increase and become more visible, and they always follow the body action forms. It is not necessary to indicate all the detailed wrinkles and folds, since there are so many.
