Paris Fashion Week Inspired Fashion Design Sketches

By March 20, 2015 Designs

Wow-wa-wee-wah. What a day, huh? First a total eclipse happened in Europe (well, I saw a partial eclipse, but it was still pretty epic) and now a fashion design post? I was actually kind of unsure whether to publish these designs because I personally don’t think they’re great… but then I guess we’re all our own worst critics so I thought I’d leave it up to you to decide! They’re not digital which is something new, and that means imperfections like pencil marks and wobbly lines… but hey ho! Here are a few Paris Fashion Week inspired design sketches 🙂 Let me know what you think in the comments, I’d love some feedback!

Paris Fashion Week PFW Fashion Design Sketches

Red Skater Dress with Sequin Patches & Thigh High Leather Boots…

Over the fashion week period I noticed quite a lot of ‘sexy’ red pieces… yup! Skimpy red mini dresses and plunging neck lines. All very saucy indeed, so I decided to take that and make it my own. A figure hugging skater dress with sequin patches for a hint of glamour. The leather thigh high boots are also quite risqué and feature 2 panels of tight lacing to reveal skin and add to the drama of the look.

Leopard Panel Shirt & Striped Pencil Skirt with Tulle Hem…

I saw quite a bit of leopard print in some of the shows too, specifically at Miu Miu, and it really inspired me for this piece. Combined with another PFW trend of laid-back styles, I think it’s quite a cool combo! The skirt is perfect for tucking the shirt into and compliments the different colour panels. I also spotted hints of tulle down the Parisian runways, hence the cheeky bit of tulle hemming.

Green and Orange Leopard Coat, Mesh and Tulle Skater Dress & Knee High Leather Boots…

Another Miu Miu inspired piece with this green and orange ombre print coat. The bold print is complimented by the sweet style of the collars and fitted arms. Bold buckles fit together at the cuffs for a more structured look. Underneath is a mesh and tulle skater dress for another touch of sauciness. The skirt of the dress is a thick layered tulle in bright yellow; this is also featured on the cuffs of the dress too! A similar pair of leather boots but instead of two panels, just the one laced panel down the front to elongate the wearers legs. What do you think?

High Neck Cape-Top & Striped Mini Skirt with Tulle Hem…

One trend for AW 15/16 that seemed stronger than ever, was the all-black combination. This look is sort of inspired by lots of different shows but now that I look at it, it does sort of remind me of the Chanel show (such a cool show, set in a Parisian style cafe). The cape-top is a structure piece which looks like 2 separate layers. The bold white buttons have tulle detailing on them which joins in the with the skirt. The skirt of which is a striped mini skirt again with the same tulle hemming. The look would be paired with a white box clutch with the same tulle buttons as on the cape-top.


These designs are my own original ideas and I would really appreciate it if you didn’t publish/use these images without permission. Get in touch if you’d like to use them. 


So yup! Do let me know what you think of these… I’ll try to post more designs but as my days get busier (I’m talking Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh kinda’ busy) it’s pretty hard to publish them regularly. Anyhow, I shall be back soon.. watch out, it’s a prom post next 😀

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx
