Career Girl Answers: Can You Recommend A Book On Fashion Sketching?
Do you like this story?
I am an aspiring fashion designer and have a great passion for the fashion industry. I have a problem sketching designs that accurately represent the ideas in my head. I have searched for books that would help me convey my ideas and become a better sketcher, but I'm not sure which one is the best. Can you suggest one for me? Thank you!
I'm so glad you asked. Nancy Riegelman's "Nine Heads" is an amazing book I highly recommend. It's used in the Fashion Sketching for Design class taught at FIDM. Ms. Riegelman teaches at FIDM and students rave about her, describing her as extraordinary, inspiring, and amazingly talented. Before her fashion college career, she worked in Tokyo and Paris as a fashion illustrator for Neiman Marcus, trend publications, and fashion designers! So you know you'll be learning from the best!
Good luck, Manda!
