Publisher Comments:

How to Draw and Paint Fashion and Costume Design, the third book in the Walter Foster Collectibles series, contains yet another extraordinary collection of vintage Walter Foster titles from the 1940s through the 1960s, including Female Fashion, How to Draw and Paint Today's Fashions, How to Draw and Paint Fashions, and the Art of Costume Design. In addition to providing an overview of basic drawing and painting techniques, artists will learn how to capture figures in various poses, as well as the dynamics of facial features and expressions, and other elements of drawing. Additionally, this colorful 128-page book features easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions for rendering a range of early 20th-century fashions and theatrical costumes. From casual wear and formal gowns to textures, hats, and shoes, artists who are fond of vintage fashion and eras gone by will appreciate the book for both its instructional qualities and aesthetic and collectible values.

Synopsis:

How to Draw & Paint Fashion & Costume Design resurrects a period in fashion history when “stepping out” meant being pressed and well dressed. With original instruction from Walter T. Foster, Viola French, and Hollywood costume designer Marilyn Sotto, this dazzling collection of fashion sketches provides everyone from the novice artist to the closet fashion designer tips and inspiration for creating timeless looks, using a variety of media. You’ll learn about the quintessential fashion figure, high-fashion and casual poses, and which mediums best represent popular period textiles. Also included in this keepsake book are a variety of fun facts about the evolution of fashion design between the 1920s and the early 1960s.

About the Author

Although Walter passed away in 1981 at the age of 90, his legacy continues in a growing product line. Walter Foster Publishing now provides how-to books and kits to millions of enthusiastic artists worldwide who enjoy the rewards of learning how to draw and paint.
