Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0985136820, Hardcover)

·This beautifully designed book showcases the unique fashion illustrations of Robert Alejandro, an artist based in Manila who begins each drawing with a single leaf ·Original, humorous fashion illustrations ·Great gift book for anyone interested in fashion, design, art, illustration or nature ·Part of the revival of the unique art of fashion illustration When artist Robert Alviola Alejandro looks at a simple leaf he sees an entire fashion scene: Women dance in 1920s flapper dresses, couples in chic overcoats walk arm in arm, bearded men head out in bowler hats, and elegantly turned out gals take their pooches for a walk. There are cowgirls and mods, ladies in waiting and ladies who lunch, urban fashionistas and fans of the avant-garde. The leaf, of course, becomes a seamless part of each garment. Fashion designers have long been inspired by the natural world so it comes as no surprise that the greenery that surrounds Alejandro in his native Phillipine Islands have led to such creative sartorial illustrations.
