This is the essential book for any fashion student or designer who wants to create stunning fashion illustrations quickly but lacks either the time or the confidence to draw their own. This book provides the answer with over 200 figure templates: figures in movement, with attitude and in classic elegant poses - from a variety of angles, full-length poses, three-quarter length poses, back views and front-on poses. It covers templates for men, women, teens and children. The figures may be copied or photocopied and enlarged from the book or used as a guide to develop your own illustrations. This is a very useful tool for fashion students and designers, providing them with strong visuals for their work by making the most of templates created by one of the world's leading fashion illustrators, Patrick John Ireland. But they can overlay their own designs on to the templates to ensure the work bears their own creativity.
