The traditional division of fashion design into high fashion (haute couture fashion) and mass market fashion has its manifestation in fashion figure drawing. There is a special type of fashion figure which could be called a top model proportions with more than 9 heads ratio (10 heads, 11 heads and even 12 heads ratio). Sharp stylish look is the main focus of this type of the fashion figure.

Inspiration for top model fashion figure drawing standard is real body types of leading top models. Figure proportions of Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova are far from normal, typical figure proportions which most women have. However, they are a norm for fashion top models.

Nevertheless, even unusual figure proportions of actual fashion top models are not enough for fashion drawing. Edge-driven fashion creativity dictates even further exaggeration of top model female figure into even more stylized body types with head to body ratios of 11 and 12.
