FASHION TEXTILES NOW. Janet Prescott. Vivays Publishing, London, 2013. Distributed 2015 in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, Easthampton. 176 pp. with 201 ills. (198 col.). 28 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781908126351 In English.
Publisher's description: Before the beautifully tailored men's suit or the exquisite gown appears on the catwalk or in the store, the most important element comes into play - the place where fashion starts--the fabric. But how much do we actually know about the textiles we are wearing and does it matter? The textile industry is active all over the globe. Behind the catwalks there is a whole hidden system which combines industry, glamor, high finance and above all, design. Its scope runs from high-tech industrial complexes to traditional spinning and weaving. It encompasses haute couture and tailoring for the elite to handmade craft fabric made on traditional looms and the everyday clothing we buy in our favorite shops. It is leading the heritage revival, seeing the renaissance of old established mills and skills, and plays a part in the growing influence of sustainability and green attitudes to manufacture.
