Fingers in fashion

Yesterday my fashion illustration students practiced drawing hands and feet. "Fashion" hands and fingers are far longer and more graceful and elegant than the hands of your average human. Here is an example drawing I made to show as an example to my class.

I have always loved drawing hands. My very first job in the fashion industry came about when I drew some gloves for a freelance illustration gig. The designer liked my drawings so much that he hired me as a full-time assistant right on the spot.
