Draw Fashion Now : Techniques, Inspiration, and Ideas for Illustrating and Imagining Your Designs
about this item
Draw Fashion Now is a combination step-by-step how-to guide and workbook for learning the best techniques for illustrating and envisioning 21st-century fashion. Professional fashion illustrator Danielle Meder shares lessons she's learned during more than fourteen seasons of sketching fashion and style in every fashion capital, offering readers solid illustration techniques that demystify the enigma of fashion "attitude." Meder takes readers on a journey through the development and rendering process for contemporary female and male figures, each in three essential fashion poses--runway, street style, and red carpet--from basic sketching (developing gesture, attitude, and proportion) through rendering garments and fabrics directly on the figure in a range of mediums, both traditional and digital, with space throughout for sketching and drawing alongside the author's examples. Special sections on how to quick-sketch "fashion on the fly" (whether to capture runway looks or street style) and two beautiful, sophisticated paper dolls (one male, one female) and their contemporary high-fashion wardrobe by critically acclaimed designers, makeDraw Fashion Now a uniquely creative and interactive learning experience for fashion illustrators, designers, and enthusiasts at all levels of experience.
