Fashioning fabrics: contemporary textiles in fashion
Whilst it may at first seem obvious that textiles play a pivotal role in fashion design, the use of fabric is not often discussed in its own right, but is seen merely as a material with which a designer can execute their vision. Fashioning Fabrics seeks to redress this (as it were). Using profiles of numerous iconic designers as well as emerging talents, all of whom put fabric development at the centre of their practices, Fashioning Fabrics attempts to create an overview of how textiles are evolving and impacting on the fashion industry. From Issey Miyake's sculptural pleats to Jessica Ogden's salvaged and reworked vintage fabrics, this book pays homage to the experimental, the beautiful and the extravagant in textile and fashion design.
