by Martin Dawber (Author)


The world of fashion illustration is one of the richest design sources available today, and all students of fashion, as well as graphic design, are hungry for visual material that challenges and inspires but also gives them instructional information to help them in their own designs.

Fashion illustrators from America, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Germany, Italy, France, Sweden and the UK reveal how to harness the many different media to convey fashion - but just as importantly mood and street style - combining line drawing, crayon, collage, digital graphics and even embroidery. Each stunning visual is complemented by information from the artists themselves on how they approach their work, their inspiration and their techniques. This inside information is a valuable resource for all fashion illustrators, particularly students.

All illustrators need to feed their imagination and this indispensable guide provides a feast of the world's most adventurous fashion illustrations today.
