This paper describes the beginning of a new series of case studies to explore the use of drawing as part of the dialogue between a fashion designer and a client with the first study focused on the creation of a bespoke garment for a client in the music industry. An important aspect of this commission was that the garment formed part of an image-making collaboration for use in promotional material and various fashion and cultural influences had to be considered. The use of drawing was recorded and analysed through the procedures that made up the communication with the client throughout the design process and both designer and client furthered their understanding of their own use of drawing to the extent that a collaboration entirely reliant on drawing was devised for future work.
