This revised and updated edition 0f the b00 provides a comprehensive overview of the symbiotic relationship that exists between fashion and textiles. As textiles represent a central ingredient of fashion (for example, denim jeans), their interrelationship is an obvious theme for study, though historically the two subjects have been considered separately. The book analyzes fashion and textiles' cultural, industrial and social relationships, as well as how the two fields compete with and influence one another. The examples are drawn from the experiences and opinions of industry professionals-designers, retailers, and manufacturers. It looks at how the raw materials from which clothing is made are heavily influenced by fashion trends on national and global levels. Highlighting cultural differences and similarities between the two industry sectors, Fashion and Textiles offers varied professional perspectives, information about key roles and jobs, and practical consideration relating to economics, design, manufacture and retail. A key textbook for a wide range of courses on fashion and textiles, it is vital reading for anyone hoping to pursue a career in either field.
