INTRODUCTION
Fashion Design: The Complete Guide presents an illustrated view of fashion design with contexts and definitions, relevant areas of design practice and associated career opportunities.

Fashion can be a notoriously difficult subject to contain, both from an academic point of view and in terms of its changing nature as part of popular culture and contemporary media. The primary aim of this book is to offer current perspectives and insights into the working processes and inter-relationships that exist across the international fashion design industry. In keeping with this outward-facing ethos, the book includes interviews and contributions from selected practitioners, design students and industry professionals, spanning centres of fashion across London, Paris and New York.

This book is designed to assist fashion design students and those aspiring to work in the fashion industry to gain an understanding of the key functions and processes that directly and, sometimes indirectly, inform the critical path from a concept or design theme through to the development and realization of a prototype sample, line or collection. The book is written from a practice-based viewpoint and showcases original artwork and images from a variety of studios.

Each chapter opens with a set of objectives and concludes with discussion questions and suggested activities. It is hoped that these will encourage critical analysis and foster debate in relation to chapter content. In addition, each chapter includes a list of further resources, which acknowledges some of the contributions already made to the broad, yet often specialist areas covered by fashion design, with the opportunity to extend your personal research or critical enquiry through supplementary reading.

Whether you intend to embark on a career as a fashion designer or extend your personal knowledge of the subject, it is hoped that this book will promote and enhance your understanding of fashion design. It is a multifaceted discipline that is capable of accommodating a diversity of thinking and practices linked to aesthetic, industrial, economic and cultural activities and aspirations.
