As a fashion design student and aspiring designer I purchased this book with the idea that it would help me perfect true fashion drawing technique. However I was sorely disasspointed. The author did not go into detail of how to begin true fashion illustration as it is in the industry today and did not even talk about drawing flats. I appreciated the tips on mood boards and color theory, but overall I did not learn much from this book.
