In the increasingly hip and cutting-edge field of illustration, there is no trend hotter than fashion illustration, and this book is the ultimate in fashion illustration: 280 stunning sketches by a galaxy of international fashion designers.

Sixty celebrated contemporary designers, from all the major fashion capitals, showcase their extraordinary artworks here, with over twenty sketches produced exclusively for this publication. From the world-famous such as Christian Lacroix, Sonia Rykiel and Yves Saint Laurent to up-and-coming visionaries including Jens Laugesen, Rodarte and Roksanda Ilincic, all the designers display artworks that are guaranteed to amaze and inspire. Whether the drawings are refined and elegant, cartoon-like and colourful, or edgy and graphic, they highlight the unique creative impulse behind each designer’s work and exhibit an astonishing variety of media, techniques and approaches.
