5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 28 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
I am a lecturer in Fashion Design and find myself constantly referring to this book, not only is it visually appealing and exciting its also very practical. Starting with instruction in 9 heads croquis development it goes on to explain rendering, sketchbooks and is invaluable. My students love it to. The imagery is high quality, contemporary and cool.

Very comprehensive start to fashion illustration - clear diagrams and explanations. I borrowed this from the library first but it was good enough to warrant owning my own copy.

By Jacks
Format:Paperback
Im doing a fashion degree and purchased this book as my drawing is good but you have to master how to draw
the hunan body first, hands and feet can be quite difficult plus getting the proportions of the body right ! ,I'm so glad i bought it,
Its excellent
for rendering (colouring in) to, you have to get the look of the fabric your model is wearing right your drawing will be spoilt if this is not right!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have 19 May 2011
By SLK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is not just another fashion drawing book. It is a tasteful - and thoughtful, - thoroughly modern take on the subject; it is a comprehensive and diverse tool that takes instruction to a whole new level: it offers different perspectives, introduces a vast range of media and techniques, and provides guidance while inviting to creative freedom. From the historical references to the several glossaries, I find it both useful and inspirational, as well as simply beautiful to look at. Without exaggeration, an amazing effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Cute 9 Nov 2011
By Pafoua - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my Fashion Illustration Class and enjoyed it very much when i opened it. I love that so many different illustration examples are used to show us that there are no set rules to drawing/designing. I allows for students or self-studiers to examine drawing realistic body shapes then also examine the drawing style of professional illustrators/designers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good soft cover book 4 Oct 2011
By Online Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was in good shape. Almost like new, but it would have been sturdier in hardcover (however it's much more expensive in hard cover). It is perfect for what I need it for and will hopefully last for a long time if I decide to keep it and not sell it. The content of the book is very good with showing examples of illustrations not only done by the author, which I liked. The illustrations were descriptive in their step-by-step directions on things like rendering patterns or colors, etc.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference! 29 Dec 2013
By S. Fouche - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has very valuable information for fashion sketching students from an ARTISTIC perspective. Great for those who have had a bit of sketching experience. I use it in the second half of the semester to inspire and challenge my students. It covers Women, men, & children croquis and shows garment development from the outside form, then shows how to fill in proper amount of detail for rendering preparation. Also, very clear onactual rendering techniques.
