This is the second title in our series Studies in Fashion. With accessories such an important component of any fashion collection, this book is an essential reference for key signature-look items such as shoes, handbags, hats and sunglasses. The carefully-illustrated text guides you through original concept, style and design, choosing colours and materials, and the manufacturing, publicity and selling processes. The book is filled with sketchbook pages, photographs and drawings that clearly illuminate all the steps involved. This book should be a must for all fashion students.
