By Baugh, Gail        
Paperback - English

Here's the fabric and textile directory that fashion designers have been longing for

This book will help you find the fabrics that suit the affects you want to achieve, show you how the fabric will perform, and recommend ways of using it. This new edition has information that is key to industry professionals (including designers and owners of fashion businesses) and explains textile issues and their impact on the environment. Find the perfect fabric for every design:
  • Do you want a fabric for structure, drape, added volume, definition, or decoration? Do you want something that clings or a silhouette? Do you want a finish that is simple and pretty or lustrous and magnificent? The directory is organized by function, so you'll always be able to find exactly what you need
  • Each fabric in the directory is accompanied by color photos of samples that illustrate its properties, helping you understand how and why a particular fabric is suitable for specific items of apparel
  • At the back of the book you will discover essential field guides to fiber properties, weaves, knits, weights, characteristics, and care advice
