The runways have been invaded by youth and the street, radical subcultures, and Big Top aesthetics. The ability to capture the various moods and mixes of global influences visually is no small task. Innovation is no longer confined to just women's fashion, and the runways and fashion magazines are a mixed bag in terms of gender and age. Fashion Illustration for Designers is a textbook created not only to teach designers how to draw all the various fashion figures, step-by-step, but also to aid in understanding the subtleties of past, present, and future layered together and presented as style. It provides methods for organizing design and illustration tasks, and information about the best tools to not only get ideas on paper effectively, but also to dazzle an audience with the sophistication of the approach. Fabric and embellishment renderings are shown both in black and white and in color, and numerous flat templates provide support for technical drawings. Computer skills, essential in today's working world, are addressed and add to the multimedia approach. The accompanying DVDs allow the viewer to see actual drawing and rendering demonstrations showing easy-to-learn techniques that can be applied to any project. Good, modern-looking drawing skills allow designers to communicate their vision effectively and to open doors to wonderful and exciting opportunities.
