Perhaps you are interested in fashion and fancy yourself as a fashion designer one day. Perhaps you like to draw people who are wearing fancy outfits. But, as many of us have discovered, drawing clothes can be rather a challenge. Here is a title that will allow you to create pictures of fashionable people without you having to draw the clothes that they are wearing. The illustrator has already drawn the clothes for you. All you have to do is to draw the people who are wearing the clothes. Add their heads, arms, and legs, add a background if you wish, and color the drawings. Now you will have a wonderful collection of pictures that are completely unique, and stylish.

What is fun about this book is that the author has created some spectacular outfits that will encourage the artist to use his or her own creativity. There are outfits for the beach, for a costume ball, for a fashion show, for a party, for a dance recital, and more. The book also includes two postcards that artists on the go will enjoy sending to a friend or family member.
