Fashion is the most versatile discipline and is becoming popular day by day. This book has been designed to cater to the needs of Fashion Design / Technology students, freelance designers / dress makers, and enthusiastic learners from non-fashion background. It is suitable for the beginners who have just started taking interest in fashion design concepts. It is useful in diploma & degree programmes, short term certificate courses and training workshops.
This book is an outgrowth of my study about fashion field since last 12 years. It deals with basic concepts of language of fashion design. This is not just a book. This is a learning material. You are not a reader, but a learner. A reader is passive while reading, whereas a learner is active while learning. Learning happens when you actually do a thing. This book does not intend to make you ‘handicap’ or dependent by providing ready instructions in bulk. It seeks to take you out of the passive reading mode and helps you get started working on the language of fashion design.
Design is a visual language and it has to be learned, like any other language, by gradually assimilating, first the alphabets, then the words, the sentences, the paragraphs, the pages, the volumes. Fast reading is useless. There is a humble suggestion. Do not skim chapters as if the fire was in the house and you had just a minute left to reach the very last line. Do all the hands on experiments. Unless and until you practice sketches and diagrams as hands on experiments, it is highly difficult for you to have mastery on this subject.
