Description:

This all-in-one text and swatch book focuses directly on the unique needs of students in fashion design, merchandising, and product development. One of the essential components of a successful swatch book is having fabric samples and all pertinent information regarding fabric identification on the same page. Preprinted mounting boards for each fabric includes: Fabric Name, Fiber Content, Yarn Construction, Count, Coloration, Finishes, Weight, and List of Characteristics. Students will understand in detail the inherent performance properties and concepts of each fiber, yarn, and fabric construction. By understanding these properties designers, merchandisers, and product developers will find ways to enhance the advantages of each fabric for their desired performance expectations to make the best choices and best garments for their target market. This invaluable reference offers students a time saving and comprehensive guide to textiles-and gives instructors back valuable planning time to teach the material at hand. Features: -- Approximately 150, 2 x 3 swatches, organized within chapters include examples of chiffon, muslin, tweed, canvas, taffeta, denim, satin, and more -- Chapters on knits and performance fabrics, now dominating the apparel industry -- Assignments at the end of each chapter helps students organize and classify information -- Additional pre-printed mounting boards for the swatch book to function as an ongoing source -- Instructor's Guide includes in-class exercises and assignments, teaching methods and examples of tests on swatches
