A comprehensive view of the creative process of designing for fashion. Detailed knowledgeable survey. Well illustrated.

From the Back Cover:

The Fashion Design Manual 2 provides a comprehensive view of the creative process of designing and creating fashion. It shows how a designer works with fabrics, colours and shapes, and combines them with inspiration and new ideas to create garments that suit the mood of the times and allow the wearer to express their individuality. The Fashion Design Manual 2 invites the reader to tread the path of the designer, as their ideas are taken from sketch to sample, through production, onto the catwalk and, via the retailer, to the consumer. Each stage is discussed in detail and has been written with the support and endorsement of many fashion companies, organisations and industry professionals. The text is generously illustrated with drawings, charts and photographs, many of which are new and come direct from industry sources. The challenges posed by the imperative to perform responsibly and sustainably while still embracing a love for fashion are also addressed in this edition. So too are the exciting new technologies, and the careers and opportunities that international trade has created for those wanting to work in an industry where almost anything is possible. The book is suitable for TAFE and Undergraduate Fashion and Design Courses, upper secondary courses, and the general public interested in fashion and design.
