Tailoring books typically focus on the construction of tailored garments, beginning with the selection of ready-made patterns and concluding with the assembly of the various pieces. Tailored Fashion Design will begin a few steps ahead in the design process-providing students with inspiration and guidance to make their own patterns for tailored jackets, which they will then execute using contemporary tailoring techniques that the book will also outline. Fashion illustrations of will show students the many silhouettes that the tailored jacket can take-from formal and elegant to causal and sporty-for both men and women. Basic jacket blocks will be included with instructions on how to manipulate details within the patterns to achieve a whole new look. Profiles of professional designers who incorporate tailoring into their collections will further highlight the important place that the technique of tailoring continues to hold in today's fashion industry. Students will learn to consider tailoring as a design element, rather than just a method of garment assembly.
As a result, they'll begin to appreciate tailoring as a viable skill that not only displays their ability to put garments together, but also showcases their creativity as designers. Features: -- Coverage of tailoring for men and women -- Fashion Illustrations of jacket variations with corresponding patterns and instructions on how to manipulate design elements -- Design workshop focusing on finding inspiration and designing with a client in mind -- Historical overview of tailoring in the fashion industry, including profiles of contemporary designers known for their tailoring skills -- Step-by-step instructions for contemporary tailoring techniques
