From the Back Cover
This new detailed guide to learning the skills and techniques of drawing modern fashion and figure is also a rich reference source for a broad range of modern garments and accessories. Extensively illustrated, this introduction teaches by example, the power of drawing as a means of communication and expression and strives to show students how to perceive things in order to be able to draw them correctly. The first section is dedicated to drawing the human figure, while the second portion deals with how to draw a wide range of modern garments and accessories and the types of techniques used to render them convincingly and elegantly in different fabric designs and textures. This volume offers a complete presentation of proportions of the croquis, draping the figure, accessories, flats, and features an encyclopedia of details, how to draw textiles and real clothes, the art of illustration, and computers and fashion drawing. For designers, fashion professionals, teachers and students of fashion.

What happens is that students COPY but do not UNDERSTAND what is going on with the human figure-- alas, all of their drawings will look the same. There is no substitute for drawing classes with a live model.
While this book is good as a reference, it should not be the only source of information about the human figure and how to illustrate fashion. The best source is practicing from a live model and experimenting, while using this book as a reference for certain situations. I never recommend my students to buy fashion illustration books and copy whatever is in them. I encourage them to be creative and individual.
Each section/chapter also comes with excerises/pratices that you use do to improve your sketching. It also mentions the Do's and Don'ts and common mistakes made when sketching. Anyhow, practice makes perfect.
I suggest getting a hold of the book at school or a book store to look through it and make sure it's what you're looking for or need before purchasing it and then not meeting your expectations.
