Abstract

This comprehensive introduction to accessory design gives the aspiring designer an overview of the history of fashion accessories, including a look at important contributions by brands both classic and contemporary. Genova presents a model for accessory design, from inspiration through manufacturing, and relates that process to the design of handbags and small leather goods, footwear, hats, gloves, belts, neckwear, and pocket squares. For each accessory, the text explains how the designer’s creativity can be channeled into the development of styles that enhance a brand’s appeal to its target market.
