Fashionary Releases Shoe Encyclopedia & Sketchbook for Footwear Designers

Fashionary, a fashion sketchbook line, has released its first-ever “Shoe Design” book. With the release, Fashionary is expanding its concept from exclusively womenswear to include footwear. “Shoe Design,” a complete handbook and encyclopedia for footwear designers, includes a “Shoe Style Library” with more than 300  styles featured.

The Shoe Style Library featured in Fashionary’s “Shoe Design” book.

Inside the Encyclopedia section, Fashionary provides readers with information on everything from shoe measurements and the anatomy of a foot to manufacturing and shoe construction. The book also offers insight on shoe care, types of patterns, materials, shoe labels and trade fairs.

Whether it’s a slingback thong, platform or huarache, “Shoe Design”  includes 60 shoe templates, plus 12 shoe-last templates with different heel heights, toe shapes and footwear types for tracing and sketching.
