This book guides readers through the complete process of creating fashion prints from designing prints and patterns to the final appearance of finished prints on a garment. The book is divided into two parts: one devoted to the creative process of developing a design and the second focussed on the technical aspects of producing the design. The book discusses not only the various systems for producing prints but also the practicalities of printing on a wide variety of different fibres and finishes and the problems inherent in the use of various colours. The book also contains a large gallery of different types of prints classified by themes in accordance with the latest fashion trends.
