Overview

Draping for Fashion Design, Fifth Edition, is the definitive basic instructional text for draping in numerous fashion design programs since its original publication. This book covers all of the fundamental material for beginning and advanced study in an intensive fashion design program and prepares students for the industry. Based on current industry methods, it reflects the dramatic changes of computer integration into the basic design and pattern development process and demonstrates simplified methods wherever they are employed in the industry. Updated throughout, the fifth edition offers a new chapter on children's wear, new illustrations, and revised diagrams that enhance clarity.
