A step-by-step fashion drawing book for beginners that focuses on finding inspiration in vintage styles. Based on successful fashion-drawing workshops at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum, How to Draw Vintage Fashion encourages people to draw inspiration from fashion looks of the past to create their own unique designs. From the 1920s flappers to 80s punk to Hollywood glamour, the book introduces vintage designs and the techniques for drawing them. The first section of the book focuses on interviews with designers, models, stylists, and fashion bloggers about iconic photographs and garments that have helped to shape their work. The next section features a hands-on guide to drawing a range of vintage fashion including 1960s and 1970s looks, fashion inspired by musical trends, and the influence of style icons from cinema. There is also a section showcasing items with timeless appeal, including Ray Bans worn by James Dean, the biker jacket worn by Marlon Brando, and the Breton T-shirt made popular by Coco Chanel. Savvy young fashionistas will recognize the influence of vintage styles on contemporary designs, and will delight in being able to incorporate these styles in their own fashion drawings. Illustrated in color throughout.
