In the previous post, we got to know about the tools we need to start a fashion illustration, what is a dot, the difference between dots and points, and various lines that play important roles in design! If you want to read these CLICK AND ENJOY! Now dive into Elements of Design Part: 2

Shape

Lines create shapes. When a line crosses itself or other lines cross each other it creates a shape. So shape is an external form or outline which is two-dimensional. The different shape has different expression like a line. Shapes are the essentials of art. There are two main kinds of shapes. 1. Geometric. 2. Organic. Including these, there is also a kind of shape called 3. Abstract Shape.

Geometric Shape

Geometric shapes are circles, rectangles, squares, triangles. #UnrefinedBloom
Geometric Shapes

Geometric shapes are circles, rectangles, squares, and triangles. These are irregular, and not regulated by exact patterns. Geometric shapes are made by humans as well as nature like cristalsโ€™ shapes are geometric. When artists want to express anger and rigidity they mostly use geometric shapes.

Organic Shape

Organic shapes are also used in the Rorschach Inkblot test. #UnrefinedBloom
Organic Shape

Organic shapes can be anything found in nature. The shape of a leaf, trees, mountains, and rivers are Organic shapes. These are mainly very asymmetrical and natural-looking with curves. Now, there are man-made shapes that are Organic shapes like clothes. When artists want to create something from nature or natural-looking like soft or calming pictures they use organic shapes. Organic shapes are also used in the Rorschach Inkblot test.

Abstract Shape

Abstract shapes are man-made shapes particularly for specific expressions or not but not realistic #UnrefinedBloom

Abstract shapes are man-made shapes particularly for specific expressions or not but not realistic. Icons, Symbols like a female sign at a washroom door or a handicraft sign in a particular seat is abstract shape.

Form

The form is a three-dimensional and enclosed structure with height, width, and depth. #UnrefinedBloom
Forms

The form is a three-dimensional and enclosed structure with height, width, and depth. Forms can be organic: like a river, tree, or mountain, and geometric: like a ball, box, or pyramid. A ball is a geometric form of geometric shape round. A box is a geometric form of geometric shape rectangle or square a pyramid is a form of a triangle shape. Garments are three-dimensional forms where garment shapes like silhouettes, buttons, front-view, side-views, and back-view are two-dimensional. Garments with straight lines like rectangles, and squares look stable, confident, powerful, and masculine. But sharper angles look unstable like a diamond shape. Garments with curvy shapes have soft lines, appear gentle, and look feminine. Shapes with vertical lines look longer while shapes with horizontal lines look shorter and wider. As well as humans are also a โ€œformโ€ of different geometric โ€œshapesโ€. Weโ€™ll talk about body shapes later.

Texture

The surface characteristics and appearance of an object are the texture. #UnrefinedBloom
Texture

The surface characteristics and appearance of an object are the texture. Texture means the fabric surface can be rough, smooth, shiny, matte, loopy, fuzzy, dull, bulky, crisp, furry, soft, etc. The texture is the quality. In Fashion Design texture is a unique element that is the nature of the surface of a garment means the fabric quality. Surface texture expresses the designerโ€™s aesthetic perspective. Texture also creates a different visual aspect. Textures have light-absorbing (like matte fabrics) or reflecting (like shiny fabrics) power which can create an illusion. To appear wider one can use thick fabrics like canvas, denim, twill, wool tweed,ย gabardine, suede, etc. As well as to appear thinner you can use lightweight fabrics like linen, cotton,ย seersucker, crepe, silks, chiffons, georgette, etc.

Space

A continuous area without lines, shapes, forms, and texture, which is divided with partitions, and finishing is called space. Simply a blank place.

In design, Space is two types Positive space and Negative space. Positive space is maybe filled with highlights or objects. It is the main area of focus in a canvas. A negative space is a space or shadow between objects. Negative spaces are also called white spaces. Look at the above photos to understand positive and negative space better.
