5.0 out of 5 stars This book will prepare you for the Fashion Industry! 22 Feb 2008
By g.k. - Published on Amazon.com
Adobe Illustrator for Fashion Design is a necessary tool for anyone studying fashion design. I am currently working in the Fashion Industry for a major designer, and use all of the Illustrator techniques I've learned in this book on a daily basis. All of the concepts are well organized with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. I love this book!

2.0 out of 5 stars So much information-its difficult to follow 18 May 2008
By Kent Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
I found that this book has so much information its difficult to follow in a structured fashion. The pros are the fact that it has lots of content, the cons are the fact that it seems to try to throw everything at the reader at once. Also, I find the sketches very amateurish and juvenile compared to other illustrator books for fashion. As someone working in the fashion industry for more than 20 years I would demand more professional sketches for flats and on the figure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money 11 April 2012
By Rena - Published on Amazon.com
About 80% of the value of this book (2nd edition) is accessed online via [...] - but the page doesn't exist and this link is referenced for every lesson and video resource discussed from section 2 onward.

When contacting Pearson they wouldn't answer why the link was invalid, but offered to provide me with another link if I gave them more money. When I pointed out that I paid the same amount for the book that Pearson charges on their site for the 'complete' package that includes the code (to access the page that doesn't exist) they only reiterated that I needed to give them more money while completely ignoring my questions.

Given that I can't access 80% of the material I paid for , I can't really comment on the quality of the content, but to say that the Pearson customer service is poor would be a gross understatement and no book is worth the headache of trying to get answers from Pearson who apparently subscribe to the mantra, 'if we don't answer the question, it was never asked'. What an awesome approach to higher education.

If you are considering this book, save your money and your Advil and don't bother.

A much better buy for about half the price and no headache is;

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and easy to follow. 3 Feb 2009
By Jeanne Reith - Published on Amazon.com
If you want to learn how to use and operate Illustrator for fashion, this is a sure bet. While the first chapters explain the program and it's tools in detail, the Basic drawing exercises followed by the Fashion exercises helped me become proficient in the use of Illustrator. Thanks to the Author for the easy step by step instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 7 Feb 2009
By Kseniya - Published on Amazon.com
I work in design and product development department for a sportswear company. I use this book quite often. This book is very helpful and well structured. I liked that illustrations were done by students who have never
drawn before, yet they really start making things happen.
