I own pretty much all of the fashion illustration books out there- but this one makes for a great gift as well as reference book. The book is loaded with full color images and a lot of interesting rare drawings that I've never seen before from obscure artists. Spans a lot of years too!

I have the Vogue Illustration book, which I loved. Wasn't expecting this book to be as good. VERY pleasantly surprised. Lots of good illustrations with some real quirky ones I've never seen. Also, some more contemporary illustrators---some of which are quite good. Nice surprise!

This is a great book for any illustrator to have, loaded thick with full color images. The illustrations are done in a wide variety of different styles, hours could be spent considering some of the images. If your interested in drawing people this is a good book to have on your shelf.

I was hoping for a lot of pictures of beautiful fashion illustrations. I feel like I got a textbook instead. The history of fashion illustration is interesting and relevant considering the resurgence in interest in design thanks to Project Runway, but I bought the book because good fashion illustrations are harder to find, not because I want to know why. There were a few examples of each style of drawing in the book and why illustration is/was important and when. If I'd gotten a wordless book full of beautiful images I probably would have been happier with this book.

As a lover of fashion illustration, with book shelves and file drawers filled to capacity, I highly recommend this book. I like the small size and the fact that it includes examples from all eras. My only complaint, and this may be a personal preference, is that there was not one example of the work of George Stavrinos, a masterful draftsman who did work for Bergdorf Goodman, The NY Times, Barney's and The NYC Opera in the 1980's. He died too young, but really deserves a book of his own.

Enjoyed turning every page and reading all the captions, the rest of the text i may not ever read because for me, its all about the illustrations. I did learn a couple of things just from that-why artist disrespect commercial artists, for example.Some of those pieces were not art and did not even do their job of making the clothes more appealing. And when the models bodies were just too real-ly human, illustrators could elongate every part from foot to head, helping to create that impossible standard of beauty. Some of the art is just delightful as well, but i will leave it to you to chose your own-i did like quite a few, but also felt that much fashion art that i recall was not included. None the less, the prints are good and there are many. So enjoy.To me, worth the money!

I bought this book for inspiration to draw fashion illustrations myself. It's a gorgeous book. Spans many styles and genre. Great way to spend a couple of hours and it looks great on a coffee table. Great purchase, and highly recommended.

I loved this book, it had all my favorite Fashion Illustrator's from David Downton and Rene Gruau . It was well thought out taking you on a journey through fashion illustration over the years right up present day. Being a fashion illusrator myself I bought this purely for the front cover , that was enough for me to buy it, but I was pleased with the book, my only niggle was that I would have liked it a tad bigger , big picture books are my thing but for the price you get a lot of book. I use it regulary as a reference book for my own work and sometimes just to pour over with a cup of tea.
