Summary

To remain in-sync with current trends in apparel manufacturing practices, design students need to understand principles of technical design, such as how construction influences design, how to conduct a fit session, and how to write concise instructions for prototypes and revisions. Technical Sourcebook for Designers will provide students with essential techniques, principles, and terminology related to current apparel production technology and manufacturing practices. Through practical exercises and the authors' own industry experience, the book will integrate the fundamental knowledge that students have gained in their design courses with the technical design skills they'll need to demonstrate in an apparel manufacturing firm. Features: -- Case studies relating to chapter content -- Practical activities applying industry standards to the concepts discussed in the text -- CD-ROM including templates of forms and spreadsheets used in the book -- Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
