Publisher's description: From sportswear and sweaters to lingerie and couture, knitwear accounts for most of the apparel we wear. Designing a Knitwear Collection is an all-in-one reference book: in addition to serving as an introduction to knitting, design, and production, it is an ongoing resource for working in the industry. Both students and professionals will find inspiration from the work by knitwear designers-from icons such as Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, and Missoni to today's hottest designers such as Mark Fast, Stephen Burrows and Isabel Marant. The book covers the history of the industry, from the earliest hand-knit garments to apparel created with computerized equipment. Students learn the basics of yarn selection, stitch patterns, and CAD programs, and garment design and execution, preparing a design development package, and assembling presentation materials for their own portfolios. Updates include advances in technology in yarn development and machines and sustainable design methods and more than 50% new images. From concept through finished creation, Designing a Knitwear Collection is an essential how-to for building a successful knitwear career.
