that are used in fashion. I found it inspirational because I like
to create unique objects with novel materials.
Various chapters explore the relationships between manufacturing
and unique materials, such as fish skin leather, plastic filaments
and printing garments.
I am fascinated by the title's coverage of visionary functions for
apparel. Imagine clothing that consists of fibers that are sensitive
to the body's temperature or textiles that offer current medical
information to the medical staff!
My only criticism is that more information was given about
state of the art fabrics. Throughout the book, photographs
are plentiful and help to clarify the concepts. But - the
chapters are too brief.
It's a must have for any person who is around the fashion industry and wants to get a peek into the near future of trends materials etc.
