I have recently purchased a really wonderful textile book with photos that clearly describes and explains fabrics and materials used in the fashion industry.
Thoroughly describes fabrics, recommends fabrics to suit the effects you are looking for, shows how the fabric will perform and best ways to use it, gives distinctive features, strengths, weaknesses and usual fibre content.
BOOK NAME: The Fashion Designer’s TEXTILE DIRECTORY
AUTHOR: Gail Baugh
PUBLISHER: Thames & Hudson
Where to buy?
Kinokuniya (Dubai Mall)
