Ambiguous, sensual, coquette, and suggestive: the one thousand fashion drawing poses in this book are a deep journey into the wealth of possibilities for illustrating male and female bodies, and designers’ capacity to transmit sensations with an ever so slight flick of the wrist. 1,000 Poses in Fashion compiles all the usual fashion poses and illustrated features, represented in full color, supplemented by the many variations of each pose, in black and white. The poses show the effects of the way in which the clothes sit on the models, guiding the reader in aspects such as how to give proportion or volume to a garment. 1,000 Poses in Fashion is an essential reference for photographers, fashion designers, illustrators, models, and art directors who are interested in corporal expression in relation to fashion.
