Fashion Design Course: Accessories

This information-packed book introduces design students to an important segment of the fashion industry, focusing on the growing market sector that encompasses accessories and footwear. The authors present a detailed overview of their subject, examining both the creative and technical aspects of accessory design, presentation, and marketing. They discuss basic principles and techniques of research, design, and development, translate the industry's specialist terminology into terms students and outsiders can understand, and describe tools of the trade. Following their general overview and introduction to fashion design, the authors devote a separate chapter to the each of the specific accessories: handbags, footwear, hats, belts, gloves, and small leather items. A concluding chapter describes typical courses available to career-bound students, lists trade fairs, and recommends career paths for students to pursue. Hundreds of color illustrations are both attractive and instructive.
