More than a “how-to” book, Technical Sourcebook for Designers is a “why-to” text for aspiring apparel designers and merchandisers whose responsibilities include communicating about specifications by means of design flats and technical packages. In the global apparel industry, these tools are essential for mass production and evaluation of products that may be manufactured in factories outside of the United States. This text presents a holistic approach to technical design, including such considerations as selection of fabrics, finding seasonal fashion trends, garment construction, and fit evaluation, all in the context of meeting the needs of the target consumer with cost-effective decisions.
