Laser cutting is the latest embellishment technique to appear on the runway. In this book, Laura Berens Baker provides fourteen inspirational projects that demonstrate how to use laser cutting equipment to produce original designs for garments and accessories. The book explores how to engineer designs and the use of laser technology for upcycling fabrics to replicate traditional finishes as well as developing new ones. Each project is created in Adobe Illustrator and includes step-by-step instructions for creating the design for the laser cutter, followed by instructions for cutting and sewing. A CD at the back of the book includes templates for all the designs. Illustrated with specially commissioned photography, Laser Cutting for Fashion and Textiles offers a unique insight for fashion, textile, and accessory designers into how to use this latest technology and provides the skills to develop their own original designs.
