Format: Paperback
As a person who has a background in fine arts and design I found this book really helpful in developing my skills for fashion design. It really captures everything you need to know in order to get it started with fashion design on the right foot. It has 5 chapters: introduction to fashion, design foundations, developing your design process, assignments and the professional world. Amongst other things it incorporates a short but explicit and full fashion history, names of important designers and short description of their work, how to do the research,choose colours, fabrics and everything when developing your own designs, how to create mood boards, garment construction, croquis and inspiration books. After you learn all you need to know about HOW to create a clothing line then the book takes you further and gives you assignments TO DO like architecture, historical personality, nature and more. There are about 14 different assignments for you to do and get you started with fashion designing. After you finish those steps the book takes you even further and teaches you about the PROFESSIONAL LIFE for example how to build and effective CV, a portfolio and so on.
I am very pleased with this book and it really opened up my mind when thinking of fashion. Everything seems more clear and exact in my head and it is really helpful for people who wish to learn the basics very quickly and get on with their drawings. It helps you set real goals and has very easy to follow steps while developing the design so that everything has an order and sense.

Excellent book, it will guide you in researching for a design portfolio, every step of the way. Fantastic colour / art work. Indispensible. I have purchased many books on fashion design, but this one really hits the hammer on the nail. It will ensure that you will succeed in the initial steps for researching for a collection.

For someone with no fashion background, it can be a struggle for when it comes to trying to stand out from the crowd.
This book is for those who need inside information, and for those who want to make it into the fashion world with a bang.
it is truly great and really worth the money.
I will recommend it to all.

I love this book! It gives great advice and tips to help you in Fashion Design. I am designing a portfolio to apply for college next year. This book gives you step by step help. Starting off for beginners first, it also gives you tips at the back e.g. cv help, what tools you will need etc. I would highly recommend this book for people that are interested in Fashion Design.

The wife has been designing and making ballroom dancing dresses for years but has recently started to broaden her horizons into more mainstream clothes. This was a Christmas present and she has really enjoyed learning the tips and tricks for how design professionals operate.

This book is great for students and being on time.
Unfortunately the delivery took 5 days but the timing was not essential as my partner is a beginner in the aspects of fashion.
As she wants to learn she finds that this book is great for what she is looking for and what she wants to work with.
I recommend this book to people who are looking to start out in fashion and are aiming to understand the industry.
