Written with the innovative fashion student in mind, Sourcing and Selecting Textiles for Fashion gives a complete overview of the current textile market and shows how to apply this knowledge when creating a fashion collection.

Following a brief look at the historical growth of fashion textiles in industry and culture, the book explores the manufacturing, design, sourcing and end-use of fashion textiles. Natural and man-made fibres are discussed along with current woven, knit and nonwoven production methods. A variety of industrial and custom surface design techniques including dye, print, embellishment and fabric manipulation are covered. Trend, inspiration, colour, creating the collection and how to enhance design through textile choice and surface design are included. A perspective of current innovation and sustainability is offered in each area.

Colour photographs, illustrations and designer spotlights supplement informative text throughout the book. The text includes a bonus section of interviews with designers at different levels of their career and marketplace, focusing on how they select and source fabrics and apply them to their designs.
