Extensive range of templates with male figures included - something not that easy to find in books of this type. The models are of the skinny variety with no fuller body sized templates (hence the four stars). Great ideas for extensive poses with a CD to extend the range. The 15 year old Granddaughter has pronounced it 'really good' and was last spotted pencil in hand with a pile of paper on the table, gripped with inspiration and enthusiasm. Nice useful book as an addition to 'Textile and Design' school lessons.

This book helps fashion designers to be able to find and draw a suitable model pose for their fashion illustrations. Drawing a correctly proportioned model, in a suitable pose for the garment can often prove tricky for fashion designers so this book aims to help with that problem.

It breaks clothing down into broad categories including sportswear, business wear, outerwear and menswear. Each category is then further broken down into further niche categories (ie. Formal evening wear) which get a 2 page spread showing various suitable poses, along with one fully illustrated figure for demonstration purposes.
Later in the book it shows you one pose over a double page spread, with several different outfits on it. The images in the book can be scanned, traced or copied. Plus the book comes with a free cd which has over 250 copyright free images for you to use with design software.

I imagine this book would save designers plenty of time with their fashion illustrations, helping them easily choose a model and pose so they can spend more time concentrating on the garment they are designing.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 20 January 2011
This is a brilliant book with figure poses and techniques for rendering different fabric surfaces such as faux fur and velvet. It also has many styles of bags, boots, shoes and foundation garment blocks for different clothes. Most of the figure poses are female but there are a few pages dedicated to the male and a very short section on digital rendering. The CD is an added bonus. In all there are 250 templates that you can trace, copy or scan. This book makes proportional figure drawing a breeze. Very useful for student and designer. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.
