Crazy embellishments, full with glorious colour, its cut, and the details…… all of these explanations really showed in Christian Lacroix work of art/creations. For me, Christian lacroix (Lah – Kwah’) is one of the most inventive and admired fashion designers in the world. Well, we are not going to talk about Christian Lacroix in person, but it is about his adorable looking fashion figure. Looking at Christian Lacroix sketches made me realize that, it is very important for a designer to really understand, and know how to sketch and draw ‘fluently’ because, it will totally bring and shows your individuality inside out. Just like all of these fabulous computer-generated sketches by Christian Lacroix, I’m completely addicted to it and it looks extremely remarkable.
Personally, I’m in love with the way he do the sketch (rough and raw lookin’ sketches) and also the way he develops his own imagination and loves to live with it! According to this book ( Christian Lacroix On Fashion), the couturier stated that, like his favorite childhood toy for many years, there are those sets of cards divided into three (heads, body and legs) that can be endlessly interchanged, the history of fashion is an uncontrollable combination of different eras, in which the end of one can be seen in the shape of a sleeve, and the beginning of the next in the curve of a bodice.
As a child, from the age of six, he used to love drawing each one of these changes, building up big historical friezes. As well as including representations of the costume of every decade from the 17th century to the present day or from different regions, he wanted to note down and pinpoint every changed in fashion, however tiny. It looks like Christian Lacroix never seemed to stop expanding this catalogue of comprehensive and playful details.This amazing understanding lies at the very heart of his design. Furthermore, fashion is a fascinating story that never ends, and Christian Lacroix is the most seductive of storytellers!
