An invaluable resource for fashion students, teachers and designers, this book looks at research sketchbooks and the role they play in the research and design process. Demonstrating how ideas are constructed, for single garments as well as entire collections, the book looks at how pages and whole sketchbooks are put together. New Fashion Designers' Sketchbooks includes work and sketchbook pages from over 30 fashion designers, and examines a range of work from foundation fashion students through to professional designers. Included in the book is information about each designer on what inspires them, how they express this in their work, and how they use research sketchbooks in the design process.
Very experienced and well-regarded author with great fashion contacts An essential tool to help designers and students to produce exciting, creative and challenging work in their research sketchbooks The only book available on this subject featuring the work of many different artists and designers Foreword by Professor Frances Corner, OBE, Head of London College of Fashion
