Fashion students are enrolling in increasing numbers but they come from differing backgrounds. As novices, they have little or no knowledge of what a fashion illustration or working drawing is, how to construct a garment, what shapes are possible, and how to identify and use the correct terminology. This results in very restricted and uninformed designing - not only in the visual communication but also in the development of ideas. This unique and comprehensive source book gives students all the information they need to start designing competently and exploring their own individual design development.

From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive source book offers fashion students a wealth of visual information to assist them in creating and presenting their design ideas.

Over 1600 illustrations provide working drawings of garments, accessories and their details which can be used for reference whilst designing. Each drawing, which may be an historical, classical, ethnic or inspirational example, is correctly named and fully described in the extensive glossary.

In addition, a range of useful fashion poses is provided for women, men and children (from birth to early teenage) with instructions on how these may be developed by the student and used as templates for their own illustrations.

Fashion Source Book


  • Contains copyright-free illustrations which readers are welcome to use and adapt

  • Provides the visual information needed by students that is lacking from fashion dictionaries
