This is a newly revised and updated edition of the bestselling guide for aspiring fashion designers. Selling nearly 40,000 copies, the original 2003 edition proved to be a popular resource worldwide for students of illustration and fashion design. This new expanded edition increases in extent to 160pp, and includes a new section introducing readers to digital drawing and rendering techniques for fashion illustration, both as the primary media and in combination with traditional methods. The new edition also brings in a complete refresh of the artwork examples shown throughout the book, drawing on contemporary illustrative styles and apparel design, portrayed both in digital and traditional media techniques. It is organized into 24 instructional units to reflect the progression of a course at top design college, covering everything from finding inspiration, observational techniques, lateral thinking, mastery of the drawing media techniques themselves, to the more technical aspects of garment shapes, range planning, and flat specification drawing.
