From Julien Macdonald's cobweb confections and Lainey Keogh's filigree works of art, through Prada's sophisticated classics with a twist and Missoni's rainbow zigzags and stripes, to Martin Margiela's avant-garde deconstructions and Issey Miyake's revolutionary clothing concept A-POC, the best of today's fashion designers are bringing radical ideas to this most traditional of forms. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, Knitwear in Fashion shows off the best in international knitwork right up to the present day. An extensive reference section covers the technology of knitting, developments in design and new fibres, as well as a glossary of technical terms and biographies of designers. This book is essential for anybody concerned with textiles, fashion or contemporary design.
