DRAWING FASHION: The Body is designed for teachers and students alike and focuses on an introduction to life drawing concepts as they relate to fashion drawing. Justine Limpus Parish, Associate Professor at Art Center College of Design, recreates her studio classes and class demonstrations on the pages of this book.
Building on basic figure drawing concepts, the book starts with the essence of a successful fashion drawing: gesture, and continues with individual chapters on fashion proportion, drawing the figure in three dimensions, and drawing body parts: heads, hands, feet, high heels, and the fashion leg. Every page is filled with drawings and illustrations to help students understand the concepts discussed. This book makes it easy to build your own fashion pose templates! You will also find links to additional demonstrations on her Blog and You Tube Channel for video demonstrations like this.
