Annotation Fashion Design : The Complete Guide is a comprehensive guide to fashion design. Through a series of critical and informative chapters covering historical and contemporary theory, this book explores the multi-faceted nature of fashion design and its associated contexts, processes and methodologies. It takes a practical look at more advanced approaches to fashion drawing, working with colour media, CAD for fashion, research processes, working with sketchbooks to develop and evaluate creative ideas and building collections. Pattern making and manufacturing processes are also considered in relation to formulating and creating prototype samples in the design studio. Understanding the external fashion market environment and its seasonal nature is considered in relation to professional contexts that include how to interpret and understand a design brief, targeting and preparing a fashion portfolio for an interview and defining career goals for professional employment opportunities, exhibitions and trade fairs in the fashion industry.
