13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 3 Nov. 2010
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:48 Mins
Most fashion design books to me are abstract, at least those that I've seen.

I wasn't expecting much from this book until I flipped to the first page. And I was blown away. Wow. The illustrations are stunningly beautiful. I found myself turning the pages really slowly, admiring the artwork presented.

Most of the work featured are traditional or created to look that way. They have a very nice textural feel to them. There are a lot of beautiful ink washes, line art and lots of other styles. 100 artists are featured in this 224-page paperback. The illustrations are rendered at great detail and printed huge on non-glossy art paper.

They should have released a hardcover edition for this but I won't say the paperback construction is bad -- it is very good.

I highly recommended this book to fashion and lifestyle art lovers, or anyone who loves good art.

The Beautiful is truly beautiful.

Beautiful book for beautiful things 22 Nov. 2010
By Katie Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finally a book that compiles beautiful fashion illustrations of today, not yesterday. I was pretty excited to see artists that I adore, like Hope Gangloff, Gabriel Moreno and Autumn Whitehurst, featured in the book, but the real treat was seeing some of the amazing art from lesser-known artists working with just ballpoint and dripping watercolors. Pretty inspiring! Though I agree with the other reviewer that I would have liked to have seen the book printed on a true glossy with a hard-cover, may have done more justice to the gorgeous images in the book.
