Product Description

From the Publisher

* Contains over 1750 copyright-free illustrations which readers can use and adapt

* Provides the visual information that students need but is lacking in fashion dictionaries

* All the illustrations in the new edition have been redrawn using contemporary techniques

* Also includes a range of fashion poses (for women, men and children) which can be used as templates for students' own illustrations with information on how to prepare them for fashion illustration

From the Inside Flap

This comprehensive source book sets out over 1750 working drawings of garments, accessories and their details, which can be used for reference while designing. Each drawing, which may be a historical, classical, ethnic or inspirational example, is correctly named and fully described in the extensive glossary, thus providing the visual information that is lacking from fashion dictionaries.

In addition, a range of useful fashion poses is provided for women, men and children (from birth to teenage) with instructions on how these may be developed by readers and used as templates for their own illustrations. All the illustrations are copyright-free, enabling readers to use and adapt as they wish.

All the illustrations have been redrawn traditionally then subjected to contemporary computer graphics techniques with a view to clearly communicating shape and detail. As much ‘fabric representation’ as possible has been illustrated, on relevant garments, to give an authentic feel and a variety of complex patterns, prints and textures employed using computer graphics tools.

The Author

Kathryn McKelvey is a Reader in the School of Design at Northumbria University, in Newcastle, and the co-author, with Janine Munslow of Fashion Design and Illustrating Fashion.

When I got this book, I wasn't too sure what it could do for me, as I found the representation of the cover of this book a bit misleading. Until I had to do my assessments, in which then I found this book especially useful for work sketches, where everything had to be detailed and clear. It has everything in it including fastenings, finishings, and all the nitty gritty small things that people tend to forget about but very important aspects in fashion and working sketches. I find it a particularly useful book (for information) for fashion sketch for the poses and proportion and also to use in my pattern-making research, a book worth investing in! also especially precious for fashion students, this is definitely a book you can permanently keep to refer to again in the future.

I found this book really useful for working drawing templates for my work. There is so much in the book that can be easily adapted for personal working drawings along with some historical and various cultural garments.

Had to buy this for a fashion course I was studying at college, has loads of great pictures to do designs from. It really is just a book with pictures which I was quite shocked at but is a must on a fashion course.
