From the cover: This book takes the reader through the most important uses of a sketchbook, beginning with approaches and sources for research and capturing colour, silhouette and texture, and including drawing and photography. You can find out how to evaluate and appraise your research and establish key elements and themes, with the creation of storyboards and mood boards. Next is the design development, where you are guided through testing out ideas, problem solving and garment considerations and detailing. Finally, there is assembly and realization. There are great exercises to help unleash new ideas and case studies to see how others have worked through their sketchbook to a final collection.
With hundreds of great images from students, designers and illustrators, this is an essential book for any fashion student or professional who wants to make the most of their creative work.
