Format: Paperback
This is a thorough book covering all aspects of fashion design. It covers the different markets within the fashion industry from designer to budget, describes the design process, gives information about a variety of textiles along with fabric photos, describes the difference between woven and knit fabrics and clothing, covers technical design and flat sketching along with examples of flats, provides over a dozen assignments/exercises that enhance creativity and aid the development of a collection, gives resume writing tips and portfolio creation suggestions along with actual portfolio examples, and it ends with interview transcripts of industry professionals. There are inspiring fashion illustration and collections throughout the book to complement the text.

This would be a great resource for those entering fashion schools to get an overview of what's ahead and after graduation for a solid review of the lessons learned in college and to prepare for the career ahead.

Thinking of attending Parsons the New School of Design? Save yourself the $40,000 in student loan debt a year and just buy this book! It has the entire sophomore/junior course syllabus broken down by project almost exactly the same as the students who attend the school are taught. His insight on how to build a winning successful fashion portfolio is exactly on point! After graduating the program, this book is still my go to book whenever I work on improving my portfolio. I also highly recommend his other books as they are also just as helpful. I wish I would have had this book when I was applying for schools because its perfect for anyone thinking of going into the fashion industry as a career.
