Menswear books for fashion design students are under-represented when compared to womenswear titles, and are often divided into historical surveys of menswear and technical pattern cutting books. Basics Fashion Design 07: Menswear provides a broad introduction to menswear by considering a range of social and historical contexts that have served to define and redefine this fascinating area of fashion through the ages, and also includes interviews with contemporary menswear labels, stylists and designers.

These interviews provide valuable insights into the different styles and role models who continue to influence and define menswear in the twenty-first century.

This colorful and varied book provides details on both the design process and sources of research for menswear. All topics are considered and presented in context with fashion drawings and presentation formats - from students and recent graduates as well as more established design labels.
