There are 4 basic elements of design: COLOR, LINE, SHAPE, AND TEXTURE

(Your on-line Fashion Design Study Guide)


There are 4 basic elements of design: COLOR, LINE, SHAPE, AND TEXTURE

COLOR: Color may be the most important element of design. Costumers buy garments and accessories based on color. There are 3 dimensions of color. Intensity of the color, meaning how bright or dull the color is. The value of the color means the lightness or darkness of the color.  Last is hue which means the quality of the shade or tone of the color.

LINE: Line is a distinct elongated mark that directs the eye up and down or around an object. Construction details of a garment create lines like seams, darts, pleats, etc.

SHAPE: Shape, or the silhouette, is the overall form or outline of a garment. Shape can be a three dimensional form. There are 3 basic shapes in fashion. Straight or tubular shape; bustle shaped, which is where the back is full; and bell shaped, which is like a bouffant.

TEXTURE: Texture is how the surface feels and looks.  It is also the method of fabric construction like yarns, and fibers determine the texture.  Is the texture smooth, dull, rough, fine, delicate, shaggy, or flat? Texture affects the appearance of the shape of the garment.
