Books | Designing Accessories
Long since regarded as an inessential object that simply adds to the beauty, convenience or effectiveness of an outfit, accessories are now considered key items in a fashion collection and as stand-alone pieces worthy of our undivided attention. Basics Fashion Design 09: Designing Accessories is filled with important information that any designer will need to know, examining from concept to production four key items: the bag, footwear, jewellery and millinery. The key accessories are dissected to clearly display the core components giving a clear view of how each connects. The book explores specialist finishing techniques such as hand-finishing and machine embellishment and contains descriptions of contemporary techniques that break new boundaries in accessories design. A detailed explanation of small accessories, essential to the accessories designer, will broaden the readers knowledge and provide them with the dexterity of skills to enter the fashion industry.
