Brainchild of Fashion/graphic designer Penter Yip, Fashionary is a sketchbook designed with the fashion industry in mind. It features useful information like Brand lists, measurement charts, basic patterns, flat drawings, lists of books and websites related to fashion.
I managed to get my hands on these while there was like only 30 copies of it available on their Esty store early this month. They arrived a few days ago safe in my hands. As I opened the package I noticed how similar they are to Moleskine notebooks.
And I have to say, I really do like my Moleskine. I carry them with me all the time. I jot down ideas, to-do lists, shopping lists, blog urls and even has a list of stores I visit when I’m in New York. That being said, it was just not enough, the lines I have on the Moleskin just doesn’t cut it when I want to sketch down my ideas.
Going back to the Fashionary book. The size is about A5, much bigger than the A6 sized Moleskine that I carry, despite that, I do like this size cause it’s good for drawing and sketching. It features 130pages of pages with barely visible figure templates to allow you to sketch easily and quickly without having to worry too much about proportion and consistency.
I can’t wait to start sketching in them. All images courtesy of fashionary.org
