Publisher Comments:

AVA Academia’s Fashion Design titles are designed to provide visual arts students with a theoretical and practical exploration of each of the fundamental topics within the discipline of architecture. Packed with examples from students and professionals and fully illustrated with clear diagrams and inspiring imagery, they offer an essential exploration of the subject.

Basics Fashion Design: Menswear offers an updated perspective on the shifting and sometimes complex relationships that exist within this fascinating area of fashion. This visually stimulating book provides a broad introduction to the subject by considering a range of social and historical contexts that have served to define and redefine menswear through the ages. The design process and sources of research for menswear are considered and presented in context with fashion drawings and presentation formats from students and recent graduates as well as more established design labels. There are also interviews with contemporary menswear labels, stylists and designers, which provide valuable insights into the different styles and role models who continue to influence and define menswear in the 21st century.

Synopsis:

A stylist is responsible for choosing the look and clothing for a fashion image to communicate a fashion idea, trend or theme, or to advertise a fashion product. This book outlines what it means to style for a catalogue or advertisement (commercial styling), or a magazine (editorial styling) and what types of skills these different fields require. The shoot process is broken down step by step to demonstrate the preparation and editing of clothing, the shoot day itself and the post-production processes.

Synopsis:

Basics Fashion: Research and Design leads readers through the essential stages of fashion research--then explains how to translate that research into design ideas. How does the design brief affect the design process? What is the target market? Should designers set a theme, concept, or narrative for a collection? Author Simon Seivewright, a distinguished designer and professor, answers these questions, then explores the process of design development in a series of structured stages. A variety of approaches to communicating and rendering design work are discussed, all illustrated with more than 200 inspiring full-color images.

* Understand design briefs, target markets, creating collection themes

* No-nonsense text and more than 200 full-color illustrations

* Case studies with contemporary designers
