To become a successful fashion designer, you will need to develop your drawing skills, but for any career in fashion it is important to have an understanding of the basic principles of good fashion drawing.

Basics Fashion Design 05: Fashion Drawing presents a fresh perspective on the basic principles and practices of contemporary drawing styles, applied to a fashion context.

The book takes a practical approach in discussing the process of fashion drawing, offering advice on the selection of materials and media and advising on their different uses and applications. It also considers the theory and history of fashion drawing, and the range of styles used by contemporary designers; from quick sketches to sophisticated digital pieces.

This discussion is accompanied by interviews with designers and illustrators, a glossary, resources directory and templates.
