This book is so useful to anyone in the fashion business. It is a pricey book, but it is well worth the money you spend.
This book is fabulous! It teaches all the basics so you are still able to put a piece together that has your own personal style. The suggested exercises are very helpful and really do help the artist come into their own. Five stars!
I love this book! It's so helpful and can definitely help someone who's looking forward to going to Fashion Design school. The illustrations in this book are beautiful and Nancy did an great job. I can't wait to get the 4th edition.
