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 wearers to express their individuality. It 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 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. So too are the exciting new technologies, and the careers and opportunities that international trade has created.
