Menswear books for fashion design students are under-represented in relation to the wealth of womenswear titles, this fully expanded and updated edition of Menswear provides a broad introduction to this exciting subject.
The second edition includes two completely new chapters on design development for menswear, which looks at sportswear, print, denim and knitwear, and on design research, which explores working with sketchbooks, fabric, colour, samples, trimmings, toiles and first samples. Filled with insightful new interviews with both emerging and established designers, Menswear also features case studies with contemporary menswear labels, stylists and designers. New exercises complete each chapter, enabling readers to apply their own skills in fabric, colour, print and design.
Menswear is an invaluable companion text for all designers seeking inspiration for their own menswear design collections.
