View: 2705In today's world of fashion, companies are looking for creative people who can communicate their designs quickly and neatly. The challenge faced by designers using computers is to create, produce and deliver ideas on a tight schedule while retaining their creativity. This book is one of the first to show both students and professionals in the fashion industry how to use the Adobe Illustrator vector-based design package to make technical drawings of garments in a fast and precise way, building a library of trims and design details and how to visualize and render their design ideas. The book's structure is to start at the basics, with clear step-by-step instructions on creating flat drawings of simple items such as vests, skirts and shirts, and gradually move on to more difficult tasks once the basics have been mastered. Once the reader has learned all the techniques in the book, they will be able to produce in printed and digital format all the common items used by design studios to communicate ideas such as mood boards, illustrations, garment range, sketches, design details and technical design sheets. Adobe Illustrator is the most established and commonly used application in the fashion industry. The book covers both Mac and PC platforms, and the version of Illustrator used - version 10 - is the most established and latest major upgrade.
