Fabric for Fashion: The Swatch Book, Second Edition (An invaluable resource containing 125 fabric swatches)
This easily navigable resource provides over 125 swatches of essentially the most recognized and widely used kinds of fabric, including natural fabrics such as cottons, silks, wools, and linens in addition to artificial and synthetic fabrics like acetates, lyocells, nylons, and metallics to encourage consideration of not just the aesthetic appeal of quite a lot of fabrics but also their structure, feel, and weight. Bound into a hardcover book, with descriptions and contextual illustrations alongside them, the fabrics are in their raw state, before bleaching, dying, or finishing, in order that their properties will also be observed without the distraction of color or pattern.
With information on fibers, basic construction of fabrics, weights, construction, and weave comparison, the book will lend a hand student fashion designers to make informed textile choices based upon an understanding of raw materials along with the processes that make up a fabric. A useful glossary defines key terminology. The book will likely be useful for someone who works with fabrics and is the ideal companion to the Fabric for Fashion book.
