Fashion Knitwear Design, Hardback Book


Knitwear is a highly influential, though sometimes overlooked, element of contemporary fashion. Its simple yet amazingly versatile textile structure offers endless possibilities for exploration. To develop a successful collection the knitwear designer must design both fabric and garment, employing a range of creative and technical skills. Written for fashion, textile and knitwear design students and young professional designers, Fashion Knitwear Design provides advice on the diverse skills needed to take a knitwear design from initial idea to finished product.

The entire design process is covered, including research and concept development, fabric and garment design development, pattern cutting and garment construction.

Chapters on yarns and structures support the reader to build the technical understanding that underpins any successful design.

Fashion Knitwear Design is written by a team of specialists who deliver Nottingham Trent University's highly respected fashion knitwear design courses, including the only undergraduate degree within the UK to focus solely on the subject.
