Overview

Art students who plan to work in fashion design will value this unusual book and CD-ROM combination. The book opens with detailed instruction in drawing a correctly proportioned human figure, which is the necessary foundation for all fashion illustration. The most detailed and accurate garment drawings cannot convey a garment's true appearance without a properly drawn figure wearing it. Chapters that follow present detailed illustrations of human figures in a wide range of fashion poses, followed up with various garment shapes superimposed on the figures. Garments include dresses, gowns, pants, skirts, outerwear, knits, and many other items. This book also shows students how to employ the rendering techniques that add to creation of a professionally finished fashion illustration. Techniques include shading, highlighting, and coloring illustrated figures, using watercolors, markers, or working digitally. The enclosed CD-ROM presents templates that students can either print or bring up on their computer screens, and then embellish with their own garment designs. The book's more than 250 illustrations in color and black and white complement an instructive text.
