This book describes techniques for illustrating fashion details (referred to as flat or technical drawings). The details cover jackets, overcoats, trousers, skirts, shirts, blouses, dresses, knitted styles, accessories, foot wear, hats, bags and sport shoes, with special attention to how clothing hangs, moves and folds when being worn.
Each chapter starts with an introduction, followed by images and explanatory captions for each illustration or series of illustrations. With a focus on shape and form, the book illustrates drawing with fine marker and hard pencil.
