1 Emphasis The Focal Point of Fashion

2 emphasis A dominant focal point or center of interest in a garment or an outfit created by the use of line, shape, color, texture, and/or pattern. A point for the eye to rest on for a period of time. An outfit without a dominant point of interest appears uninteresting, boring, and unfinished.

3 Too much emphasis Two or more dominant areas or points of emphasis, are distracting and confusing… the eye becomes overly stimulated and the effect is spotty and displeasing. Other points of interest may be present… but they must be less obvious in their claim for attention. The eye notices them, does not rest there, but returns to the dominant point.

4 Examples of emphasis

5 Emphasis assignment Choose a picture that demonstrates the principle of emphasis. Attach it to a paper and write a paragraph below. Paragraph: Describe where the eye is drawn due to the emphasis Tell which elements cause the emphasis Discuss other points of interest that may help or distract from the main focal point. Turn it into a portfolio page.

6 Portfolio Example Emphasis The focal point of this dress is the appliqué of butterflies on the skirt area. The eye is drawn to this area because of a change in color and line. Other areas that also draw attention are the waist and lower skirt where pink ribbons are placed. This tends to fight with each other not allowing the eye to rest on one area.
