Format: Hardcover
This book will be inspirational to anyone who aspires to be a knitwear designer, in the fashion-forward sense of the idea. It's not a pattern book, but it does have lots of pictures of runway models in things you'd never wear, including those infamous Alexander McQueen numbers. It also has knitted-fabric-as-art pieces, altho not the installation that was a knitted house complete with knitted furniture and vacuum cleaner.
It includes a few pages of knitwear in fashion history, as well as a few pages on the technology of knitting. Handknitters might not get as much inspiration as machine knitters, but there's plenty of ideas to take and use in your own original pieces. There's easily a dozen sweaters with elements I'd adapt for my own sweaters.
Who would buy this book? A knitwear designer, someone with money to burn and/or who loves to see fashion shows. However, do recommend it to your local public or academic library! then put yourself on the list to check it out.

Two new titles are excellent artistic presentations. Sandy Black's Knitwear In Fashion reviews some of the works of the radical new designers creating knitwear styles. From avant-garde deconstructions to eye-catching new clothing and blends of traditional with modern knit styles, KNITWEAR IN FASHION showcases some of the best from modern knit fashion artists.
