We know those artist-types sometimes have trouble organizing their visions, but the Hokey Croquis Fashionflat Sketchpad ($15) will help any designer get their thoughts down on paper. Use the right column area for notes, inspiration tears, or fabric swatches. Each page has a faint female croquis that lets the fashion flow without light boxes, tracing paper or figure drawing, and the outlines disappear when photocopied or scanned (so sneaky). Pens and markers won't bleed through the heavy stock paper, and perforated letter-sized pages tear out easily for quick transfer to your portfolio. The adorable magenta ribbon closure and cute customizable monogram stickers add finishing touches to this trés chic workbook.
