As with any other profession it all begins with Passion, and to help Daniel express this to all of us he has assembled notables in the industry to share their own thoughts on how their careers have been shaped and the role that hard work and being innovative played in their getting what they wanted.
As someone who is not a designer I read this book with excited interest because it is really a plan that anyone in the creative community can appreciate and use in their own lives. We are all in the business of making the world a better place by what we do, and sometimes we just need that little push to help us get to the next level. If nothing else, FASHION INSIDE OUT will encourage you to keep moving forward, never knowing where the road ahead might lead.
Vosovic writes in an easily understandable style. For instance in the chapter on Execution he likens creating a garment to architectural structures. "In architecture, the base on which a structure is built determins its strength, style and longevity. The same is true for fashion." The chapter than starts with the base (creating an original pattern) to the final build. There is an interview with Ardeana Kirckof to back up the prose as well as tips that sum up the chapter. Sprinkled in between are lots of wonderful pictures! Each chapter is similar and a true delight to read!
So don't stop at just giving it a quick read and looking at the pictures! Daniel has create a real primer for the people interested in fashion, fashion design and marketing. Whether just starting out, a home sewer or just want to know more about clothes, Daniel walks us through the creative process and challenges the reader to try new techniques and to open their eyes to new inspirations. There are great interviews peppered through the book from both Project Runway celebrities and fashion insiders.
I'm a home sewer and knitter with an interest in becoming more creative. Reading Fashion Inside Out has already encouraged me to start carrying a notebook and a camera. My current projects are looking better and I'm approaching new projects differently. I strongly recommend this book.
