This is NOT a project oriented book with pictures and instructions to take one through doing a particular project. There is no how-to aspect of this book.
What this book does do is show you the major art to wear work. Virtually all of this is imagined from the ground up, where the artist first tackles the making of the fabric and finally makes a design to showcase that fabric. The fabric comes first. These fabric treatments run the gamut too. Fabrics are dyed, painted, pleated, woven, refabricated, burned out, pieced, torn, etc.,
This is a formidable artistic undertaking in an of itself. After the fabric is created, an innovative design is used to best showcase the fabric on the model or on a wall.
The resulting clothing is not something that is worn day to day or in ordinary life. These are show stopping clothes which would only look right at a high end event.
In addition to clothing, accessories, such as headgear, are also covered.
The work is all beautiful.
I highly recommend this book.

I love the book but unfortunately the minute I opened it the cover detached from the spine of the book. I am not happy about that.Published on September 25, 2011 by Are
