Fashion drawing is an essential skill used by fashion designers to visually communicate clothing designs and trends. In clear and easy-to-follow points, this book progressively guides the student through key fashion drawing and design techniques. From basic oval and triangle figure templates, the student quickly progresses along the drawing skills learning curve to produce creative illustrations, which are developed into professional and dynamic presentations and design portfolios. The text is supported with explanatory drawings and photographs of the fashion model, together with plenty of exercises and artwork from designers and illustrators around the world. The book encourages the student to develop a personal, artistic style within the accepted design standards used in the fashion industry, preparing them for a career in design. This is a highly effective textbook, suitable both for class use and self-teaching.

The book is a really interesting and informative explanation of the process of drawing models and clothing, and is simple enough that it is easy to follow.
All I would say is that in the first few pages it suggests things (pens, pencils, etc) that would be helpful with the book. If you are getting this as a present, it might be worth getting a few of these too (you can see the page using LookInside feature).
quickly...even the faces and hands!!! It took the mystery out of fashion
illustration, and has made me feel full of confidence to develop my
drawing skills further. I want to be a menswear designer and it has a
great section on sketching men as well. And I found the section on
getting my portfolio together really helpful. Fantastic for fashion
It shows you how to draw female and male poses, and even has a section on children and costume design! Faces, hands and feet were my nightmare and, using simple exercises and sketches, this book has made it all so easy.
It has excellent illustrations and fashion drawings, clothing/flats, fashion figures and templates. And the presentation chapter and portfolio chapters are really helpful. Every page is an inspiration! Buy this book now and, like me, I am sure you will never regret it!
Every page is full of images - drawing techniques, drawing exercises, fashion illustrations and fashion designs. It has explanatory text, but not too much, just the right amount so that you can get on with the creative side of fashion drawing and illustration.
It really is a fabulous book.......a must have!
There is great section on fashion templates and clothing design.....my fashion drawing has really improved since I bought this book...I recommend it to all fashion students.
It includes lots of cool images/fashion designs/illustrations from various designers and illustrators which I find inspiring and has encouraged me to develop my own style of drawing. It has also helped me think about my portfolio and how to prepare it for the fashion industry.
I would recommend this book to all fashion students. It is really informative and inspiring.
