Fashion Illustration for Designers, Second Edition
Fashion design begins in the designer's creative mind, and drawing is the crucial next step to communicating creative ideas to others to bring those ideas to reality. Clear, expressive drawings engage and bring together people in patternmaking, production, marketing, and all other facets of the fashion business, ensuring that everyone shares the same vision that originates with the designer.
Kathryn Hagen brings decades of experience teaching design students how best to translate their ideas into drawings. She opens with basic drawing skills using both hand tools and computer techniques before moving on to applying those skills to both the human figure and the specifics of various types of clothing. Throughout the book she exposes designers to myriad techniques and styles, encouraging each individual to discover what works best for him or her.
Each chapter ends with practice exercises as well as visual references to review and reinforce material learned in the chapter lessons. Videos demonstrating hands-on examples can be viewed online, with emphasis on distressed fabrics and novelty treatments. 84 pages of color present a wide variety of rendering techniques.
