Intended Learning Outcomes:
2. Students will practice how to take body measurements.
3. Students will analyze body types and make suggestions on how to make a body appear proportioned.
There are four basic body and clothing silhouettes that are used in the fashion industry. They are: (Show the overhead of the basic silhouettes.) a. Ideal b. Rectangular c. Triangular d. Inverted triangle
A womanís body may be classified into any one of the four main categories; most menís bodies are classified into the inverted triangle body type.
One body type is not better or worse than the others. Some are easier to dress; some need help to create the desired silhouette but one is not better than the other.
Share a Judy Garland quote: "Always be a first rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else." ASK: "How can this quote apply to our own body types and the images we try to portray?"
One of the most important keys in dressing your body and making the most of your appearance, is to understand the meaning and use of proportion.
Proportion is the ratio of one thing to another; a comparison. (Use the Basic Proportion Silhouette Overhead) In fashion we take into consideration the following: 1. SIZE-is it equal to, greater than, smaller than; for example, are shoulders equal to, greater than, or less than hips. 2. SHAPE-is it wider than, narrower than, etc. 3. SPACE-is it evenly divided? Have students complete the Proportion Worksheet after watching a demonstration on how to take body measurements.
After measurements have been taken and recorded, go over the Recommended Style Lines for Horizontal Figure Types (table 4-3) in detail. Use several examples in pictures to show how balance is achieved for each of the 4 figure types.
Following that have the students take their body measurements and apply those to the the Figure Type Assignment.
