This is a beginners' step-by-step guide to drawing like a fashion designer. The book is aimed at young people who are keen to learn how to draw fashion figures and outfits. At the beginning of the book, leading fashion designers explain why drawing is so important to the design process, with examples from their sketchbooks for inspiration. Then there are sections that show how to create a fashion template ( croquis ), including fashion proportions and how to turn a stick figure into a full figure; how to draw skirts, trousers, jackets and dresses onto the fashion template; and how to develop a collection, including the creation of complete outfits and seasonal looks. Towards the back of the book there's a section that looks at the design process, from creating a mood board and following a brief to developing a collection.
