This is exactly what someone interested in fashion needs to get their "gear" ready and help them think differently and creatively about Fashion. We all wear it. I am not a fashion student or designer. I just design my own and use some of these designs in my artwork. This book was good because it caused me to get out of the comfort zone, look at fashion, read about it and study it. I recommend it.
It really inspires you for the fashion design
