Review by Julie at Jackson s: “This book focuses on capturing the texture and style of clothing on a simplified figure. It will be useful of course for fashion designers, but many artists will also find this book helpful. Showing how to make the texture of a fur coat, patterns on clothing, and how to capture a facial likeness with very few marks, this book is packed with good drawing information. It covers the six major drawing media, a variety of illustration styles and was an enjoyable read.”
With more than 200 illustrations and brief explanations (in English, then French, then German), this book offers a step-by-step introduction to the six most important methods of fashion illustration: watercolours, wax crayons, pastels, felt-tip pens, graphite and coloured pencils, and collage. Readers will not only become familiar with these individual fashion-illustration techniques, but will also learn how to combine and experiment with them. The illustrations are by known fashion designers such as Paul Poiret, Madeleine Vionnet, Coco Chanel, Cristobal Balenciaga and Frowick Halston. They show which methods are best suited for specific articles of clothing while providing a good overview of the history of fashion in the 20th century.
