Item description for Figure Drawing for Fashion Design (Fashion & Textiles) by E. Drudi...

FIGURE DRAWING FOR FASHION DESIGN offers a concise, topic by topic guide to acquiring and perfecting these skills, concentrating on the female form. The coverage provided means that this book is ideal both for those who want to apply themselves professionally to fashion design, and for all enthusiasts of drawing the human body. Fashion plates are the primary means of visualizing ideas and concepts in costume and fashion design. To give an accurate impression of what is in a designers mind it is vital to have complete mastery of the rules of figure drawing. Here, realism and anatomical precision are the chief values, whereas for costume and fashion, stylization and exaggeration are ways of adding individuality and verve to a plate, and of focusing attention on specific elements.

Reviews - What do customers think about Figure Drawing for Fashion Design (Fashion & Textiles)?

Nice pictures  May 13, 2008
I got this book and was not thrilled. It has some nice pictures, but they don't teach much about drawing. There is also nudity for no real reason. Some of the illustrations look more pin-up than fashion. I find most of the illustrations very short waisted.
Figure Drawing for Fashion Design (Pepin Press Design Books)  May 2, 2008
This book is full of graphics and excellent information about drawing the fashion figure. I teach fashion design and illustration and I recommend this to anyone, beginner or intermediate!
Better off taking a fashion sketching class  Mar 7, 2008
I bought this book because I *just* wanted templates. (I know that as a designer, my strong suit is not in fashion sketching like this, never has been- but sometimes you have to.)

What this book provides is more of a how to create the bodies you want based off of the 9-head model. For some, this is great- a classroom in the book. For me, who has been working in this field for a long time and I just needed to crank some bodies out without putting in (for me) an excruciating ammount of work, it fell short.

Also, the proportions of the bodies are a little strange and the hand placement a bit rough. I spent more time fiddling with more natural hand positions on the templates than actually drawing the garments on them.

It is a good book for those who can't attend an actual sketching course, but if you're looking for templates- good luck.
The book is really nice gide for those who never draw before .   Jan 19, 2008
This book helps a lot, it open your eyes transporting in the world of fashion draw. is really nice material.

Pretty great, considering how cheap this book costs...  Jan 5, 2008
Though I haven't had a chance to study the book in detail yet, I skimmed through the book, & it seemed like it covered some pretty basic drawing concepts. It also included differing styles of collars, sleeves, etc., which seemed particularly helpful for those in the field.
