Klutz: My Style Studio Review

Klutz: My Style Studio
Klutz: My Style Studio

Here’s one book you won’t regret buying. My Style Studio from Klutz lets you design and trace your very own fashions – the perfect practice for all aspiring fashion designers out there!


Style Studio

The book looks like a platform with a white box attached. The box contains colored pencils, a sharpener, eraser and inking marker – pretty much everything you need to create your own fashion designs. It’s also got a book with folder pockets to keep your clings, patters, figure sheet and tracing paper.


Tips & Tricks

While this kit is totally Do-It-Yourself, it also comes with tons of handy tips and tricks to help you along the way, including:

  • Color combinations for different seasons – with examples.
  • How to layer and use colored pencils to get more than just eight basic colors.
  • Easy step-by-step instructions on how to use My Style Studio
  • Examples of techniques you can try to make the clings and pattern plates very flexible in design.
  • How to easily make more tracing paper sheets that fit the white work area.

Exciting Extras

The book also contains extras for tracing earrings, buttons, bows, accessories; there are even patterns you can trace onto clothing. Combined with the clings, which include hair and faces in addition to the clothing, you basically don’t need to draw anything free by hand (though you definitely can if you want to!).


Body Image Bonus

This might just be the best thing about this fab book. At the very beginning, there’s a little mention about how the basic model shape is not realistic. Instead, it’s an ideal fashion shape that doesn’t appear in the real world (so don’t ever expect your own or anyone else’s body to look like a fashion model!).

Tutoring is great for teenagers who have done their exams. Parents will pay at least £10 for an hour session of maths tutoring to get their child into a good school (e.g. 11+ exam to get into grammar school where I am). Get 10 students and you have made £100 in an hour, and you can do this every week, say on Saturday.  You'd be surprised by how great it works, my sister is 17, doing A levels, and she's doing it with my mum. You don't need any qualifications or anything because you're self employed, but if you did well in your exams then parents will send their child to get tutored by you, and are willing to pay :P
