How to Draw Like a Fashion Designer Inspirational Sketchbooks Tips from Top Designers by Celia Joicey, Dennis Nothdruft

This is a beginners step-by-step guide to drawing like a fashion designer. The book is aimed at young people who are keen to learn how to draw fashion figures and outfits. At the beginning of the book, leading fashion designers explain why drawing is so important to the design process, with examples from their sketchbooks for inspiration. Then there are sections that show how to create a fashion template (croquis), including fashion proportions and how to turn a stick figure into a full figure; how to draw skirts, trousers, jackets and dresses onto the fashion template; and how to develop a collection, including the creation of complete outfits and seasonal looks. Towards the back of the book theres a section that looks at the design process, from creating a mood board and following a brief to developing a collection.


Celia Joicey and Dennish Nothdruft have assembled practical drawing exercises from workshops held at London s Fashion and Textile Museum.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
