How to Draw Vintage Fashion Tips from Top Fashion Designers by Celia Joicey, Dennis Nothdruft

This is a beginners step-by-step guide to drawing vintage-inspired fashion like a real designer. The book is aimed at young people who are keen to learn how to draw figures in vintage outfits. At the beginning of the book leading designers explain how they go about finding vintage inspiration for the design process, giving examples from their sketchbooks, while models, stylists and fashion bloggers explain why vintage fashion is now so on-trend. There are sections that show how to draw a fashion template (croquis), including guidance on body proportions and how to turn a stick figure into a full figure. The book then shows how to draw fashion looks based on all kinds of inspirations, including key decades, such as the 1960s and 1970s; musical trends, such as rock n roll and folk; and cinema. Feature boxes look at the detail of accessories, including jewelry, bags, belts and shoes. There is a section showcasing iconic fashion pieces with timeless appeal. 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 vintage collection.
