Fashion designers create original clothing, accessories, and footwear. They sketch designs, select fabrics and patterns, and give instructions on how to make the products they design.

According to the dictionary, a drawing is a picture or diagram made with a pencil, pen, or crayon rather than paint.  Should this definition be altered to include computer aided drawing?  Actually, the use of electronics and software such as CAD software would be considered "digital drawing".

Drawing is a form of visual art in which a person uses various drawing instruments to mark paper or another two-dimensional medium. Instruments include graphite pencils, pen and ink, various kinds of paints, inked brushes, wax colored pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels, various kinds of erasers, markers, styluses, and various metals. "Digital drawing" is the act of using a computer to draw.

Fashion Illustration is the communication of fashion that originates with illustration, drawing and painting.  It is usually commissioned for reproduction in fashion magazines as one part of an editorial feature or for the purpose of advertising and promoting fashion makers, fashion boutiques and department stores.

Fashion illustrators, also known as fashion design artists, are specialized illustrators who focus on expressing fashion designs and ideas through art. In modern times, they often must be familiar with computer design software and usually hold bachelor's degrees in graphic design or a relevant field.  However, a degree is not an absolute necessity.

Fashion drawings are almost any illustration with a focus on fashion, accessories, and related subject matter. Fashion drawings tell stories about clothing, handbags, shoes, jewelry, and more.
