Product Description

Review

'A very useful sourcebook for both students and professionals. Breaks down the research and design process clearly, helping to understand the importance of relevant research for design.' -- Pasqualina Iarrobino De Montfort University, UK 20111108

'I LOVE this series of books. They are inspirational, affordable, and informative. I love the interviews with the various designers and others in the industry... Of course, not all students actually go out and buy the book but those that do are impressed and have gone out and gotten some of the others in the series.' -- Alisa Caron The Illinois Institute of Art - Chicago, USA 20111108

'Very useful and easy to understand book. Great visuals. Used as a resource for myself as a teacher and recommended to students to buy for themselves. Introduces students to design language that they can understand.' -- Shelley Campton Canberra Institute of Technology, Australia 20111108

'The book will be suitable for the following reasons: very good teaching tools for specific research and design tasks; clear and concise with easy to follow instructions; contemporary and innovative in approach and format.' --Marie Loney Havering College of FE & HE, UK 20111108

It's like having your own fashion tutor in a book.
Great advice and help with the early stage of fashion designing, the interviews are great and gives an insight into real life fashion scenarios.
Would recommend.

Required Fashion Reading 16 Feb 2013
By Lulu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I graduated from one of the top fashion schools and realized that this book open my eyes even further to research and design. It's written for the serious fashion person: who has had training and wants to learn more. It explains various ways to research for your collection and how other designers work in their croquis books. Even if you did graduate from fashion school, this book shows you more possibilities in design. The price is good, so what are you waiting for?

Why does this book exist though 10 Dec 2013
By Shayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was a required text for one of my design classes. It's an okay text for novices, and it's got some interesting images and interviews in it, it's basically just a road map for ideating. Full of obvious suggestions like "go to the library and read books," "draw inspiration from films," "make a moodboard." Some of the textbooksy semantic information in it is really subjective/unimportant. (I.e. tries to assign unnecessarily specific definitions to terms like "abstract design.") I guess it might be convenient to have all this how-to design-process information laid out in front of you in a book in case you're suffering from creative block, but some of it just doesn't seem to be worth having been written down really.

Poorly Written 26 Sep 2013
By Shudder Fly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was poorly written. It lacked good content and definitely sounds like it was someone who didn't have reader in mind.
