Definition: Technically, the term Illustration refers to "a picture illustrating books and newspaper". In Fashion, before photography took over, fashion drawings were used in store catalogs to illustrate available apparel designs, and came to be commonly referred to as "fashion illustrations". Nowadays, the terms "fashion illustration" and "fashion drawing" are often incorrectly used interchangeably. "Fashion Illustration" refers to the purpose of a picture or image, whereas "Fashion Drawing" describes the attributes of a type of illustration. Fashion Illustrations can actually include any image related to fashion- such as fashion drawings, fashion sketches, photographs, paintings, and so on.
