Fashion Designers Sketch Opera Costumes for Charity

Christian Siriano - Turandot
"Miuccia Prada for Atilla. Thierry Mugler for Lady Gaga. Rodarte for Black Swan. It seems that high-end fashion designers are expanding far beyond their runways these days. So it was only befitting when the 6th Annual Divas Shop for Opera event, a charity designated to benefit the design of New York City Opera costumes, asked various designers to create sketches inspired by their favorite operas. Narciso Rodriguez, Peter Som and Carolina Herrera were among those who created one-of-a-kind drawings that will be auctioned off at the event." [Source]

  1. A sketch is made of overlapping lines, and it is an art of freehand drawing. Generally, sketches are used to save ideas that are used for a long time. It is very easy to make sketch, and it saves lots of time rather than making an actual painting on a particular subject. Generally, sketches are designed as applied arts in the field of engineering and fashion designing.
