A user-friendly and contemporary approach to the basic elements of fashion design, Designer's Guide to Apparel explores the creative process of apparel design and the development of a collection. Written from an industry perspective, it takes an active approach combining the elements and principles of design, aesthetic judgment, technical competence, and an understanding of the customer. Rooted in the practical use of the creative process, students are challenged to simultaneously meet the demands of aesthetics, production, and consumer needs and are encouraged to experiment with the concepts and to discover how they apply to the everyday tasks of designers.
