Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Apparel production is a complex process often involving an international supply chain which must respond rapidly to the changing needs and tastes of consumers. This important book discusses the technological improvements which are transforming the speed, flexibility, and productivity of the industry.

The beginning reviews advances in apparel design. There are chapters on modeling fabric and garment drape, computer-aided color matching, yarn design and pattern making. Other chapters discuss key issues in apparel sizing and fit, and the role of 3-D body scanning in improving garment fit and design. The second half surveys advances in production, beginning with product development before looking at advances in knitting, sewing, printing, finishing, and fabric inspection.
