“Designers, we’re going to Mood!” More than 10 years ago, Tim Gunn and Project Runway introduced millions of viewers to New York’s ultimate fabric mecca, Mood Fabrics. Now, the experts behind this fabric power- house bring their fabric and fashion know-how—plus their behind-the-scenes stories—to the sewing public. The Mood Guide to Fabric and Fashion is the ultimate guide for home-sewers, fashion students, aspiring designers, and Project Runway fans who want to learn everything they need to know to choose and use quality fabric. Drawing upon the expertise of the Mood staff, the book teaches readers the fundamentals—from where fabric is produced to the ins and outs of its construction—and features a fabric-by-fabric guide to cottons and other plant fibers, wools, silks, knits, and other specialty fabrics.

The complete reference on all fabrics, their properties and their uses in fashion. “The topics are summarised and conceptualised with striking visuals and supporting graphics…teachers will find it easy to use this book to access key facts quickly” Just4Textiles “Anyone with an interest in fashion should read it and anyone studying or working in the sector should buy it now” Style With Heart “This title is a wealth of information on every possible fabric, from yak hair to hemp and polyamide to elastine and synthetic rubber. You name it, this book will tell you the history, properties and manufacturing processes of each, using images from the catwalk and the factory to illustrate” The Sewing Tree Fabric for Fashion: The Complete Guide is the only book specifically for fashion designers that explains the behaviour and properties of different fabrics. Fashion design is largely determined by how fabrics work, move, feel and look. The most successful fashion designers are those who understand their materials and match design skill with technical knowledge. This book bridges the gap by providing a mix of practical information and industry vocabulary, visually examining generic fabric types, discussing their characteristics and showing how to exploit materials to push the boundaries of design. With stunning colour photographs that show how fashion designers, both past and present, have worked with fabrics, the book’s prime objective is to stimulate creative exploration of the relationship of fabrics to fashion. Now in its second edition, it covers man-made as well as natural fibres, making it the complete guide to fabrics. The book also includes a useful glossary of key terms and a resource guide to sourcing fabrics. It will be indispensable for anyone who works in fashion and is the ideal companion to Fabric for Fashion: The Swatch Book, also in its second edition.
