Styled by hand: The many incarnations of illustration in the world of fashion
Every dress begins with a drawing, every skirt with a sketch. Illustration is integral to fashion design not only as a means of expression, and the starting point of every design, but also for patterns and prints as well as magazine editorial illustrations. Often, artists will even illustrate the newest looks directly from the catwalks. It’s high time we celebrated fashion illustration in our Illustration Now! series: here you’ll find new work from 90 artists around the globe, including Ruben Toledo, Aurore de La Morinerie, Bil Donovan, Tanya Ling, and Jean-Philippe Delhomme. The book features quotes by experts from the fashion world: Valentino compliments the work of Gladys Perint Palmer; voices out of the studios of Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, and H&M add their praise for the talents in the book.

Following an introduction by illustration expert Steven Heller, the historical essay by art and fashion historian Adelheid Rasche provides an in-depth exploration of the subject. Looking back to the 17th century, she draws a timeline of fashion illustration until today, accompanied by images such as an early etching by François Watteau, a drawing by Paul Iribe for the book of the famous Parisian couturier Paul Poiret, and illustrations by the highly acclaimed masters of modern fashion illustration René Gruau and Antonio Lopez, as well as, from more recent years, François Berthoud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent My favourite series from Taschen is hands down the Illustration Now! series. This latest addition is a hefty hardback which doesn't disappoint with its variety of artists and stunning production values. If you've collected previous books you already know what to expect of Taschen's quality which is to say pretty darn great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good survey of contemporary fashion illustration This book has some very interesting and gifted artists working in fashion featured in its pages. I loved some artists, and didn't care for others, but the book gives you an idea of what's out there. I didn't give it five stars because I am aware of several prominent and noteworthy fashion illustrators working with big clients and on noteworthy campaigns who didn't show up in this book. There were a few showcased artists whose quality was dubious, and many more works that are spectacular.
