Fashion is all about experimenting with styles, pushing the boundaries and setting new trends. But despite the changing seasons and tastes, the skills necessary for a fashion designer never change. This book teaches aspiring designers these essential skills and provides invaluable career guidance. With a solid foundation in these core concepts, techniques and behaviours, designers will be able to focus on successfully bringing their designs to life while establishing their brand. The creative process is broken down into stages and the different sets of skills needed, taking designers through the building blocks of generating ideas and translating them into designs, all the way through to staging a catwalk show
