Whether their dream is to become the next hot runway designer, develop their own clothing line, or simply combine their artistic skills with a love for fashion, the tips, tools, and step-by-step projects in Fashion Design Workshop Drawing Book & Kit provide budding designers with everything they need to draw an assortment of fashions. Artists will learn to render a variety of fashionable contemporary styles, including a classic red dress, a bohemian outfit, sporty athletic wear, and casual jeans paired with a t-shirt. Also included is plenty of inspiration from past decades and iconic styles, including a Renaissance-era dress, ’40s swing, ’50s rock ‘n’ roll, and others.

Aspiring fashion designers and illustrators will find everything they need to create the stylish projects in the book using the materials provided, including a drawing pencil, eraser, 6-double-sided colored pencils, 8 fine-line markers, loose-leaf drawing paper, and pre-printed fashion pose templates corresponding to the projects inside, which artists can photocopy for continued use and endless creative designs.
