After many requests for a book about clothing labels we decided to put one together featuring a wonderful gallery of labels for artists, textile manufacturers, graphic designers, and just plan old ordinary people to enjoy. This book includes a little bit of history and technical information as well as a diverse selection of lovely labels to look at and be inspired by. There are labels dating back to the turn of the century, as well as a current roster of famous names and contemporary designs. A wonderful introduction gives a comprehensive overview of the history of garment labels and manufacturing techniques. A resource guide lists many of today's leading clothing-label manufacturers. After leafing through this book, you'll never take your clothing labels for granted again! This is an excellent, inspirational resource for fashion designers and historians.
