From the Back Cover
This book provides easy to understand, step-by-step instructions and diagrams showing how to use Adobe Illustrator to create flat drawings, working drawings and storyboards for the fashion industry. Hand drawings are no longer good enough for an industry which demands increased productivity, profitability and accuracy. Adobe Illustrator enables the user to create clear and detailed drawings that satisfy the industry's needs. Adobe Illustrator has become the industry standard, taking over from other software packages.
Although Adobe Illustrator is a powerful CAD program, it is difficult to grasp quickly. This book provides the building blocks which enable fashion students and designers to get started quickly while learning the more sophisticated facilities as they become more fluent. Here they are shown simply, concisely and in a highly practical way all that new users need to know to begin to create acceptable work.

When I came across this book and noticed it has been written specifically for Textiles/fashion designers I thought I would get it. It arrived last week and within a minute of opening it I knew it was exactly what i needed. There are step by step mini tasks to complete but the instructions are clearly laid out and in colour too. The digrams are nice and big and easy to identify with. Further in the book it deals with how to combine the use of Photoshop with Illustrator to create Presentation boards.
I also brought a book on Fashion illustration templates Technical Drawing For Fashion (Portfolio Skills)which has a CD of fashion templates in the back. Both of these book will be perfect for my needs.
For any Textiles student, teacher or designer needing a straight forward step by step guide then this is the only book you need.
One of the best books I have brought- and will be buying a couple of additional copies for my Textiles department at School.
After looking through it, it seems to have a lot of tips and good explanations so you don't get too confused!
Unfortunately it took 13 days to arrive which was too late for me to study for a project I had to hand in at college.
On inquiry the seller told me it would be delivered by Royal Mail and seeing it was supposed to have been posted the day after purchase I actually thought they must have lost it, although when it arrived it was delivered by DHL?
I am currently working through the book on my own and so far it is easy to follow,
If you need it in a hurry like I did then I'd suggest paying extra postage to guarantee that it arrives faster.
