For courses in Fashion Design, Fashion Illustrations, and Figure Drawing.This new detailed guide to learning the skills and techniques of drawing modern fashion and the figure is also a rich reference source for a broad range of modern garments and accessories. Extensively illustrated, this introduction teaches, by example, the power of drawing as a means of communication and expression. Its new approach to figure and fashion drawing teaches the principles of how to represent the structure which underlies all good drawing. Just like a building, a drawing has to have a sound underlying structure in order to work. This method achieves remarkable results for students of fashion and sketching. The first section is dedicated to drawing the human figure, while the second portion deals with how to draw a wide range of modern garments and accessories and the types of techniques used to render them convincingly and elegantly in different fabric designs and textures.
