More About the Author

Marnie Fogg was born in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire. An early passion for clothes resulted in her studying fashion at Nottingham College of Art, now Nottingham Trent University, from the age of sixteen. Designing for many levels of the market for a few years was followed by working for luxury knitwear label John Ashpool in Berwick upon Tweed and in the print workshop of Sue Kemp. This experience of all aspects of the fashion and textile industry led to Marnie establishing the first high level fashion course in Wales, where she became a Senior Lecturer. Moving to Derbyshire, Marnie became a visiting lecturer at both Nottingham and Derby Universities at the same time as studying for a Masters Degree in Fine Art Theory and Practice, exhibiting her work in Derby, Beilefeld Germany and Athens. Following the publication of her influential book 'Boutique, a 1960s phenomenon' in 2003 Marnie became a full-time author of best-selling books on fashion and textiles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspriational 2 May 2006
IF you want to know the thought processes behind the greatest print designers working today you need not look any further. Marnie Fogg (great name!) has interviewed all the designers herself and these fascinating insights into the design process are backed up by some wonderful and striking images. You really do get a sense of the dynamism and creativity of these people.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT 17 Nov 2006
By Holly Becker - Published on
I loved this book - very inspirational - gave me lots of insight on top designers that I hadn't read about elsewhere. Total eye candy. I highly suggest this book for anyone in the design biz or who just needs inspiration and is a real lover of prints and patterns.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thought it would be better 12 May 2007
By S. Mclain - Published on
I got this book for a digital surface design class that I am taking. I thought that it would be a really cool book and I had actually flipped through it once. Yet when I got it, I was a little dissapointed. The author does not carry her thoughts well from one paragraph to another. I feel like she uses big words that she might not necessarily understand completely...oh and there is a missing page :(
