Overview

Leading fashion designers such as Anna Sui, Christian Lacroix, Zandra Rhodes and Valentino 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. Finally there’s a section that looks at the design process, from creating a mood board and following a brief to developing a collection.

How to Draw Like a Fashion Designer is based on hands-on workshops held at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London. It was the winner in the 12+ section of School Library Association's Information Book Awards 2014.
