Description:

This practical text takes students step-by-step through the pre-production processes of apparel product development: planning, forecasting, fabricating, line development, technical design, pricing, and sourcing. It demonstrates how these processes must be coordinated to get the right product to market when consumers want it and at a price they are willing to pay. Now in full colour, this Third Edition includes a greater focus on sustainability and business ethics, fast fashion calendars and their impact on product development, and the effect of social media on design and distribution. The text also includes a discussion of how technologies - such as colour matching, body scanning, and the use of avatars for fitting and patternmaking - have advanced in their accuracy and commercial applications. Chapters have been updated to incorporate current practices in sourcing, pricing and costing with a more focused point of view on how increasingly sophisticated distribution channels impact the product development process.
