Beautiful book that will delight those interested in the basis of fashion design,
This review is from: The Fashion Resource Book: Research for Design (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Fashion Resource book is beautifully presented, replete with imaginative and appealing four-colour illustrations. Its main focus is that of research: "why primary research is fundamental in developing personal identity as a fashion designer within a global industry", to quote from the foreward. The first section is about the research process, providing chapters on the work of some famous designers from various specialities. The main section is about research and inspiration, using such examples as nature & science, uniforms, heritage and art. Finally, the book provides a dozen or more case studies of designers such as Burberry, Prada and Chanel. I am sure that this book will be invaluable to students or those wanting to become students in the fashion design industry, as well as being fascinating to people who are just interested in fashion and its role in modern society.
