Following the success of Fashion Designers’
, this second volume shines a light on the
work of a new line-up of major names in the fashion
industry. Photographs, sketches, moodboards, lineups,
muslins, swatches, and more all feed the creative
processes that forge fashion designs, and here they are
brought together to reveal how the final collections are
conceived and developed.
Juxtaposing the original research material and
drawings with the garments shown on the catwalk and
in lookbooks provides fresh insight into the working
methods of leading international designers and the
role of different media in creating their collections.
Students and designers will find this a fascinating and
invaluable resource as they develop their own work.
Rick Owens, Clements Ribeiro, and Marios Schwab
are just some of the prominent designers featured.
Interviews in which they discuss the importance
of their research run alongside their respective
sketchbooks, providing an inspirational overview of
cutting-edge approaches to fashion.

• Unique compendium of photographs, sketches, moodboards,
muslins, fabric swatches and more from leading fashion

• Interviews with designers exploring their creative process

• Includes work from top names in fashion, including Issey
Miyake, Christian Lacroix, Junko Shimada, Rick Owens.
