Book Description

Oct. 12 2010
The celebration of the art of looking good has always demanded talent, vision, and style, and the artists recruited to fill the pages of Vogue since 1909--when it was taken over by Conde Nast-- have possessed these qualities in abundance. Their brilliant drawings chronicle not only fashion but also the whole comedy of manners that is the international social round, and this sumptuous volume collects the very best of them. Many great artists have contributed to Vogue's graphic tradition, including Dali, De Chirico, and Berard. The 1950s saw a period of near-eclipse for fashion drawings, although the light was never completely lost. Now a revival of interest is fully in evidence, as new talents have joined the ranks of the artists--including Botero and Hockney--who have tried their hand at this decorative, informative genre, and have seen it so often rise to the level of art.

The one other customer review connected with this book is incorrect - this is not a step by step drawing book - it is a history of fashion drawing in Vogue Magazine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Step bt step drawing May 19 2000
Format:Paperback
I am a graduating fashion design student in The Art Institute . I have searched for a complete drawing book throughout my education. And, I found this book very handy and useful, and decided to have it in my little library. This book starts with complete course of education on basic drawing of a figure, and gives you step by step instruction of how to end up a beautiful figure of your own, even though you are not sure about your drawing skills. Once you get your basic figure done, it shows you how to put the other items together, draw the details. It gives more than enough information and pictures about coloring and rendering which is the most important section to make your design come through. The section I liked most in this book was about drawing the hands and face which has given me trouble during my education. After reviewing the book and applying the techniques , I relaized how easy it is to do it my own, instead of swiping someone else's sketch.And also, the rendering techniques and information about it was very useful to finish up my sketches. I highly recommend this book to any person in any level of drawing skills, who is interested in drawing Fashion figures.I have had a big advantage of it , why shouldn't you?

This beautiful book was purchased for my grandmother for Christmas and was her favorite gift! It's big and heavy for a paper back so it makes a great coffee table book. My grandmother takes art classes and has always loved fashion, so this was a perfect book for her combination of interests.
