It takes more than raw talent and passion to make it in today's global apparel and accessories markets-excellent computer-aided design skills are a prerequisite. CAD for Fashion Design and Merchandising allows students to immediately begin creating digital fashion presentations using Adobe Illustrator® and Photoshop®. This book takes an integrated approach, allowing students to master the three-dimensional benefits of combining the two software programs. Colorful illustrations accompany easy, step-by-step tutorials that are geared toward students at the beginner and intermediate levels. Because the book uses fashion photography rather than hand-drawn illustrations as a basis for demonstrating the proportion of fashion croquis, instructors will be able to evaluate students' mastery of digital illustration regardless of their hand-drawing skills, and students will benefit from a seamless transition from creative thought to digital rendering.

From the Author:

In the global apparel business, manufacturers need fashion personnel with professional computer skills. However, for many formal training is out of reach and/or the format of most computer books is often not user-friendly.

The book features men's wear and women's wear fashion design art and merchandising tutorials and offers techniques yielding dramatic effects through photographic and pre-rendered images available for use right from the enclosed DVDs.
