Fencing concept sketches by Marcusstratus Fencing concept sketches by Marcusstratus
These are the preliminary idea sketches (the first assignment) to my fencing inspired clothing line I'm designing in Concept Development II. I was sketching ideas for menswear as well as womens wear, since I didn't know which I wanted to fully do at the time. I have since chosen to do some of the menswear garments. In the next assignment after this one, we were to take these and choose the 3 best designs and develop them further.

Wow. This is quite clever. The designs are so pretty. If only I could wear this when I fence....

No no, these are my own designs. The concept I was working around was to take a sport (fencing, of course) and make streetwear clothing inspired by fencing clothes.

Ah. Now if only actual fencing clothing could be this awesome. It would probably be more comfortable as well. Any chance of making any of these into reality?

Well, some day. I really like these garments and it's all a matter of whether or not I'll actually have time to do it...

If I had any money I would most certainly commission them, but sadly regular fencing gear is expensive enough as it is...

Nope, but it is something I would enjoy :D

I thoroughly recommend it. There is nothing like being able to stab someone, while knowing that they won't be severely harmed in the process.

Amazing, like always! You are freakin' good! Just out of curiousity, do you plan on designing costumes for movies and such, cuz you are seriously that good :) Also, do you make shoes? Cuz in almost every photo I've seen in your gallery, the shoes just 'go' with the outfit! :heart:

Well, that would be something I'm interested in, making costumes for movies or theatre, but I would also enjoy having my own boutique or online shop or work for a company I admire... But about those shoes, I've only made one pair I wear [link] but I would really enjoy making some more...

The ones I like the best, the ones that would be the most visually stimulating when translated into actual clothing would be... hmmm 4, 10 with some embroidery detail on the jacket/wrap & 16. It's really good design work.

it's just a first to see someone use a trench coat design generally for a fencing outfit i guess it would make folling the wearers movments slightly more difficult lol

Well keep in mind that these aren't clothes intended to be worn during fencing but rather street clothes inspired by fencing ;)
