New Zealand Fashion Design PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

New Zealand Fashion Design free pdf New Zealand Fashion Design celebrates New Zealand's top contemporary fashion designers, showcasing their work and encapsulating the developments in this fast-moving creative field over the past thirty years. New Zealand's designers are as diverse as their creations, and together they have brought New Zealand fashion to the attention of the international fashion world. 25 individual designers are profiled in the book, from veterans like Marilyn Sainty and Zambesi's Elizabeth Findlay to commercial success stories like Trelise Cooper. Based on one-on-one interviews with Te Papa's fashion curator, these profiles are also generously illustrated with literally hundreds of catwalk and editorial photographs and material from each designers' own archives and collections, plus a generous sample of the garments they have designed over the years. This way, New Zealand Fashion Design gives readers an up-close look at the clothes themselves and - behind the scenes - provides real insights into each designer's work methods, design philosophy and inspiration. A list of awards, recommended reading section and full professional index complete this valuable resource and an engrossing introduction and timeline by Peter Shand provide the background to the profiles, explaining how this exciting industry has developed over the past 30 years. This gorgeously designed book is essential reading for anyone interested in fashion design, from aspiring designers, to students of art and design, to fashion lovers and collectors.
