A step-by-step guide for young people who enjoy clothes and want to learn the tools to help them express their fashion ideas on paper

Based on successful fashion-drawing workshops held at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum, here are practical drawing exercises that really work. Bold design, color-coded sections, and drawings that will translate to a sheet of paper make this a helpful and inspiring resource.

The book begins by looking at the sketchbooks of past and present designers to see how they developed their signature drawing styles. Then there are sections that show how to create a fashion template or croquis, including fashion proportions and how to turn a stick figure into a full figure; how to draw skirts, pants, jackets, and dresses on your fashion template; and how to develop your own collection, including the creation of complete outfits and seasonal looks. There's a section that looks at the design process from creating a mood board and following a brief to developing a collection as well as a reference section with lists of technical terms, garment styles, and fabric types.

Review:

“More detailed sketching instruction, and short-response interviews with fashion designers such as Anna Sui, and Valentino, target the career minded student.”
- School Library Journal

“Celia Joicey and Dennish Nothdruft have assembled practical drawing exercises from workshops held at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum.”
- Woman Around Town

“This accessible book provides ‘Inspiration’ by including interviews with and illustrations by well-known designers such as Zandra Rhodes, Christian Lacroix, and Anna Sui. Drawing basics are covered step-by-step from choosing medium, to sketching a “croquis” (figure shape), to successfully rendering shapes and details. The final section takes readers through the stages utilized by professionals [to create] a fashion collection.
