Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Endeavoring to present the top fundamental principles of fashion design, this book is organized according to categories of inspiration, materials, technique, style, and trends. The technique section is the longest, covering everything from sketching to garment construction and sewing. In 100 short articles embellished with full-color photos and illustrations, Calderin (director, creative marketing & special projects, Sch. of Fashion Design; Form, Fit, Fashion: All the Details Fashion Designers Need To Know but Can Never Find) brings even highly conceptual and esoteric fashion design ideas down to earth. He addresses aspiring and working fashion designers of all levels, but other interested parties include avid Vogue readers and Project Runway fans.
