Inspirational sketchbooks and tips from top designers written by the Fashion and Textile Museum's curator Dennis Nothdruft and director Celia Joicey.
With contributions from designers including Valentino, Christian Lacroix, Anna Sui, Peter Jensen and Zandra Rhodes, this book explores the importance of drawing in fashion, and features step-by-step exercises for developing a signature style.
Colour-coded sections and drawings show how to create a fashion template or croquis; how to turn a stick figure into a full figure; and, how to draw dresses, skirts, trousers, coats, jackets and accessories. A final section looks at the design process, from creating a mood board and following a brief, to developing a collection, including the design of complete outfits and seasonal looks.
