Lines in fashion design are important because they give direction to a design. They can create illusions that are complimentary or derogatory. #yougottakeepthemseperated!

The 4 Types of Lines

Lines can create movement in a design, carrying the eye from one area to another. They can be vertical, horizontal, diagonal, or curved.

Curved Lines

It is hard to say what would happen if an outfit lacked lines. There are many lines: in the collar, in the design, in the way it is cut. It is hard to avoid lines. Lines are important because they help create illusion that could be to your benefit......or make you look less flattering. You need to know how to dress your body type, and lines help extremely well with that.
