Book Review: Fashion Designers' Sketchbooks

Fashion Designers' Sketchbooks

The sketchbooks featured are more like craft books. Besides sketches and drawings, there are also cutout of fabrics and photos. Most of the artwork are use the collage style, since this is about sketchbooks, they are all work-in-progress pieces. They look raw and interesting, like visiting a crafting room.

There are 50 designers featured so the variety is good. Their one-page interviews provides some nice light reading. Since sketches here are not representative of their actual work, you'll get more enjoyment if you know the designers.
