The book is richly illustrated with images from international collections. Underpinning each chapter are exclusive interviews with designers from all facets of the fashion industry, who share their own experiences of developing their own collections. This book is a fabulous resource for all budding and start-up fashion labels.
Insight into real industry-based fashion practice is valuable knowledge that cannot be taught to students in a theoretical way. The first-hand insight into designers' working methods presented in this book - from conceptual research to producing a marketable collection - makes Developing a Fashion Collection a valuable practical tool for recent graduates and emerging designers embarking on their own careers.
