Summary

This text provides a step-by-step approach to drawing the basic fashion figure, identifying the elements of a garment, and discussing the various techniques used to render fashion illustration. The book also benefits the advanced user by its exploration of concepts such as manipulating the figure, drawing draped garments, and creating flats. It is the author's belief that without knowledge of the past, it is impossible to design for the future. Using designer garments, Stipelman helps the student understand a specific concept, the designer and the garments place in the history of fashion. By the end of the book students will have an understanding of the concepts of fashion drawing, both basic and advanced techniques, of their own talents and goals, and a glimmer of their own personal style. New to this Edition: -- CD-ROM with demonstration and discussion by author of rendering techniques for specific chapters -- Four-color illustrations throughout depicting rendering techniques from basic to advanced -- Illustrations depicting current designers and their garments in addition to historical designers and their designs to familiarize students with fashion history -- Discussion of the concept of "style" and an understanding of the concepts of fashion drawing to student's talents and goals -- Chapters begin with an overview of the subject, including a brief fashion history or the relationship of the garment detail to the figure
