All aspects of fashion illustration are covered in this essential reference for the fashion student. It also deals with faces and hairstyles, heads and hats, and fashion details such as collars, sleeves, skirts, pleats and folds with a wide variety of materials. There are also sections on the rather different approach to fashion illustration necessary for advertising and on the persuasive way in which the drawings themselves should be presented. In addition to the author's own diagrams and drawings, the illustrations include a selection of old photographs and fashion plates. Patrick John Ireland is author of "Basic Fashion Design', "Drawing and Designing Menswear", "Drawing and Designing Children's and Teenage Fashions" and "Fashion Drawing for Advertising".
