Abstract: This study conveysto the fore the significance of child visual art works as valuable potential designed elements for the development of fashionable prints for children’s wear. With a little modification, the paper reveals the possibility of using these works from the children to promote their creativity in the realm of fabric design. As a practicable project, the practice-based research under the qualitative design methodology was used. The drawings of 411 purposive sampled participants; 2 to 12 year-old boys and girls fromKwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Nursery and Primary School (Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Campus) and D and D Kiddie Kare and Academy (Deduako) in kindergarten and basics one to six were systematically examined. Descriptive analysis used, drew on a range of children’s art works to provide fresh hypothetical insight into the possibility of using child art as a motiffor developing fashionable designed fabric prints. The key findings are that children’s developed worksof art are innovative and dynamic, give them a sense of joy and identity that develops into relevance when processed into children’s fashionable wear. The paper also acknowledges that creativity makes use of the traditional and the conventional methods for developing textile motifs, a promising source of creativeness that has the potential to overwhelm the field of design for children’s fashionable wears. Since Art culture is an integral part of every human being, this paper seeks to advocate that textile design experts must engage and elicit children’s perspectives and experiences through art KEYWORDS: Creativity, Fashionable Wears, Conventional Methods, Designed Prints, Child Art
