Availability: Ready to download

Fabric for Fashion: The Complete Guide is the only book specifically for fashion designers to explain the behaviour and properties of different fabrics. Fashion design is largely determined by how the fabrics work, move, feel and look. The most successful fashion designers are those who understand their materials, who match design skill with technical knowledge. This book Fabric for Fashion: The Complete Guide is the only book specifically for fashion designers to explain the behaviour and properties of different fabrics. Fashion design is largely determined by how the fabrics work, move, feel and look. The most successful fashion designers are those who understand their materials, who match design skill with technical knowledge. This book bridges that gap by providing a mix of practical information and industry vocabulary, visually examining generic fabric types, discussing the characteristics of fabrics and showing how to exploit materials to push the boundaries of design. With stunning colour photographs that show how fashion designers, both past and present, have worked with fabrics, the book’s prime objective is to stimulate creative exploration of the relationship of fabrics to fashion.

    This was my first book on fashion, so I was not sure what to expect. To me "guide", even "complete guide", signalled a slightly informal, somewhat information-filled tour of the fabrics used in fashion. Was I wrong! While attempting to read through systematically, cover to cover, as well as attempting to absorb the contents, I realised this was actually more of an introductory textbook of the highest quality than a "guide". It works its way through Animal fibres, Plant fibers, and Man-made fiber This was my first book on fashion, so I was not sure what to expect. To me "guide", even "complete guide", signalled a slightly informal, somewhat information-filled tour of the fabrics used in fashion. Was I wrong! While attempting to read through systematically, cover to cover, as well as attempting to absorb the contents, I realised this was actually more of an introductory textbook of the highest quality than a "guide". It works its way through Animal fibres, Plant fibers, and Man-made fibers, where each part is subdivided further. Each type of fiber is described in detail, starting from the way it is produced, the industry that produces it, and the concomitant ethical considerations, to the finishing processes and final applications in fashion. The accompanying illustrations are a mixture of real-life runway designs, graphs, animal and plant pictures, material and fiber close-ups. The layout is accessible, colourful, clear, and detailed. Unless you are planning a career in fashion, you don't need to remember all the details to get a rewarding overview of what goes into the clothes we all wear. It's an excellent reference book as well. Highly recommended to anyone who is curious. (Yes, even just generally curious about life—you'll learn things that'll surprise you.)
