Inspirational Drawings to get Your Creative Juices Flowing
Cally Blackman - 100 years of fashion illustrationI found this book in the library and fell in love. It contains fashion illustrations starting in 1900 'till the end of the 20th century. I love how the style of the illustrations differs between each decade and each fashion silhouette.
Delphine Pinasa & Martine Kahana - Christian Lacroix, CostumierThis book shows examples of the beautiful drawings done by fashion designer Christian Lacroix. I love the fact that these aren't designs for his fashion shows, but for theatre and opera.
Robert Violette - Hussein ChalayanHussein Chalayan makes very precise sketches of his designs. This books showcases his final work and also the sketches and notes he made while designing each collection. The sketches come on an insert that gives them an extra special feeling.
Delphine Pinasa - Christian Lacroix, La sourceAnother book with drawings by Christian Lacroix, this time for the production of 'La Source' in the Paris Opera. What I love about this book is how the placed drawings and designs next to the finished costume. This truly shows how the maker interpreted the design. I love seeing things like this! Bibliography
