An invaluable resource for fashion students, teachers and designers, this book looks at research sketchbooks and the role they play in the research and design process. Demonstrating how ideas are constructed, for single garments as well as entire collections, the book looks at how pages and whole sketchbooks are put together.
New Fashion Designers' Sketchbooks includes work and sketchbook pages from over 30 fashion designers, and examines a range of work from foundation fashion students through to professional designers. Included in the book is information about each designer on what inspires them, how they express this in their work, and how they use research sketchbooks in the design process.
