Leather Fashion Design (Portfolio Skills) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Leather Fashion Design is a practical, how-to book about making garments from leather, suede and similar materials.

It covers everything from what to look for in choosing a skin to work with, through pattern-cutting, sewing techniques and finishing. The book starts with a showcase of leather apparel spanning time, but concentrating on the twentieth century.

Interim chapters include examples of leather apparel at its finest as well as clear step-by-step illustrations of how to make various types of garment.

The final chapter includes working with 'leather-like' materials including ultrasuede and faux patent leather. Beautifully illustrated throughout, and including a comprehensive resources section listing relevant organizations, publications and other information, this book will be invaluable for both students and professionals.
